I need a starter recipe for Beer Yeast for making bread.
Bill from Clinton, MO
Breads, Warm and cold alike
Take 4 large potatoes, 1 double handful of hops, put in a sack and boil with the potatoes; dip the potatoes out of the water when done into a gallon crock and mash them fine, then pour the water over gradually; mix well, then fill the crock with cold water and stir in 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of sugar, 1 pint of good yeast; then set in a warm place to ferment. Eight hours will suffice, and then tie up and keep in a cool place.
Hope this helps, the recipe is from a 1908 book, Maryjo
