Default Anybody makes homemade yeast?

Due this Covid madness, one of the most wanted store items here is the yeast (not the toilet paper like on so many places lol) and we are about to try to produce our own.
Any simple home experience recipes?

You grow yeast from yeast ... starter cultures ... What type of yeast do you need?

I am baking our own sourdough breads for years. Never use commercial yeasts.
Just in case, I always have a backup of dried starter flakes. If you want this, I will be happy to mail it to you. Just re-hydrate and you are in serious sourdough business.

Here is a recipe from a 1880 Cookbook;



"GOOD HOME-MADE YEAST
Grate six large raw potatoes, have read a gallon of water in which you have boiled three handfuls of hops. Strain through a fine hair sieve, boiling hot, over the potatoes, stirring well, or the mixture will thicken like starch. Add a small cup of sugar and half a cup of salt. When cold, add a cup of fresh yeast. Let it stand until a thick foam rises on the top. Bottle in a couple of days. If kept in a cool place this yeast will last a long time . Use one cupful of yeast for one large baking. In making it, from time to time, use as bowl of the same to raise the new yeast with."



As in most cases you start with a small amount of yeast of some form.

But what if you don't have yeast to add?

Make your own sourdough starter, or get some from someone who maintains one, and never worry about yeast again. Lots of great recipes for using the discard from the feeding process too.

Then you take you chances with WILD yeast. Many fruits have a natural yeast on them. One recipe I saw starts with old bread to grow yeast. ... Anyway, most recipes call for dividing the yeast culture in 1/2 then adding a equal amount of flour & sugar for 5 or more cycles. This is to manure the yeast and weed out the undesirable yeast. .... Old or outdated yeast may not be good for baking but it can still be used to start a yeast culture.


You need yeast to grow yeast! It is best to start with known good yeast. Then you can store yeast long term by bottling or freezing for future use and/or starting a new yeast culture.
