Starting a sourdough starter: plastic container ok?

Michelly Feb 15, 2013 12:08 AM

The baking books I have all say to use a non-metallic container such as ceramic or glass to make and store a sourdough starter.
Is plastic ok?

    I once stored sourdough starter in a commercial plastic gallon salad dressing container because it had a handle and wide mouth. I had no problems with it.

      With Cheryl. I've used much-used yogurt tubs with no problems.
