Can you describe what it looked and smelled like when you say that it died. It is nearly impossible to kill a starter with cold, just warmth and a little flour and water will start it bubbling again. You can store it in the refrigerator between uses. You may think that it has died because it has separated and there is a layer of liquid on top of the flour.just add more flour and water, it should be thick, and it will start again to ferment. Think of it as a collection of hungry bugs that go dormant when they have eaten all that is available, Feed them some more and they revive.
