Can bread starter be frozen?

Approximately one week ago, my SO arrived home from the office bearing a small bag of goo. We had apparently been gifted with Amish Friendship Bread starter (friendship being the questionable term) and after several days of squishing the bag, I felt somewhat committed to the project. Tomorrow will mark the entire fermentation period and today I now have quite a large bag of bubbling goo.

Long story short - I know one person who may be interested in receiving a bag of starter, but what do I do with all the rest? Can it be successfully frozen in time or should I just bake up loaves and freeze them? I can't just throw it away - it's ALIVE!
