: I'm on day 7 of my friendship bread, but was wondering how to start a starter. Is there any yeast in the starter? Thanks
I also was looking for starter recipe. This is what I found on the net.
1 package of active dry yeast
21/2 cups warm water
2 cups sifted flour
1 tablespoon of sugar
Desolve yeast in 1 c. warm water, stir in remaining warm water, flour, sugar. Beat until smooth. Place in glass bowl and place on counter top. Do not refrigerate. Cover with clean dishcloth. The starter will ferment for 10 days before ready to use or give away. I wouldn't use any metal utinsils.
