 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       pk           Dry yeast
    2       c            Warm water
    2       c            Flour
 
   1. Empty yeast into mixing bowl and stir in warm water
   until
      dissolved. Add flour and stir until well blended.
   Cover with
      plastic wrap and allow to  stand at room
   temperature (or in oven
      out of drafts) for at least 48 hours, or until
   hooch (clear liquid)
      forms on top. 2. Store in refrigerator in a jar
   with a loose fitting lid (I like to use
      a plastic peanut butter jar) . Renew monthly by
   adding alternately
      1  cup of water or 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of
   flour. 1/4 cup of
      sugar may be added every other month to add to the
   fermentation. 3. Always save at least one-cup of the
   fermented mixture to use as
      on-going starter. If recipe calls for 3 cups of
   starter, add 3 cups
      of milk (or water) and three cups of flour. Allow
   to stand until
      clear liquid forms on top. Save 1-cup for future
   use and use the
      extra 3 cups in the recipe.
