Making a Yeast Starter

You may already have some yeast starter on hand. If you have a container of fruit juice in the back of the fridge that is starting to go "off" (get fizzy), that is a yeast starter. If you make your own bread and have some raw dough, you can also use that as a starter. 



Making a starter with dry, store-bought yeast:

Add 1 Tablespoon of sugar,

Cover with a loose-woven fabric that air can get through but that will keep insects out, and store in a warm or warm room temperature place for a few days.

Yeast starters can be used for making ale,  homebrew beer, soda pop or small beer, or any yeast bread.
