Once you have this starter, you can keep it as much as 10 years as did our ancestors. The longer you keep it, the better it is. Starter is unimpressive looking, but this makes some great bread. Always keep half of the starter. My husband had never made bread, and started making his own with this starter.
1Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add flour. This will produce a syrupy batter. Cover loosely and place in warm spot overnight. Never add anything else to this except 2 cups of warm water and 2 cups of flour THE NIGHT BEFORE YOU ARE READY TO USE. This will insure a continual supply. Keep starter in the refrigerator at all times. Take it out only to use it or feed it with water and flour. After feeding, return to the refrigerator.
