Maintaining a sourdough starter

Hi everyone,

I recently got a portion of Carl Griffith's 1847 Oregon Trail Sourdough Starter ( and I have some questions about sourdough starters.

I followed their directions to reactivate the starter, but I am still confused about the best way to feed or maintain my starter after I have used it for baking.

Can anyone give me some tips or recommend a really easy to understand guide for this?
