      Starting yeast from scratch

      • Use a approx. 1 qt "breathable" jar
        • need breathability to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide
      • equal parts water and flour (by weight)
        • (~2 tbsp water and 3 tbsp flour)
        • alternately use unsweetened pineapple juice in stead of water (lowers ph and provides additional natural sugar for yeast)
        • (for water, used distilled or highly filtered as tap water can have chlorine and other chemicals which make it more difficult for yeast to get started)
      • stir and set aside
        • stir three times per day
      • every day add 2 tbsp water and 3 tbsp flour
      • bubbling should begin after 3-5 days

      Ongoing feeding and maintenance

      • can keep in fridge to slow down reaction and feed only once a week for small batch baking
      • if doing baking more frequently, feed it every day
      • When using, use up half of the overall quantity and then continue feeding as before

    1. Thanks in large part to the massive popularity of “The Great British Baking Show,” Brits now, as Ptak herself has noted, have developed a taste for cakes beyond “stale sponges.”
