Stir mixture vigorously to beat in additional air. Next, cover top of bowl with cheesecloth or fine mesh cloth. Set bowl near an open window (or, preferably, outdoors) although wild yeast can be captured inside as well.

Begin day three. Check to see if bubbles are appearing on the surface of the starter. If they are, congratulate yourself--you've captured a wild yeast! Next, add 8 oz. of bread flour and 8 oz. of filtered water to the culture and stir vigorously. Cover again. Bring starter indoors and place on counter. If room temperature is above 65 degrees F, refrigerate.

Begin day seven. Begin feeding your starter with 4 oz. of bread flour and 4 oz. of filtered water three times throughout the day. By now, your starter should have doubled or even tripled in size and be bubbly with a thick, soupy consistency. Pour into canning jars and refrigerate.

# 4

Begin day eight. The starter is now ready to be used to make bread. To reactivate the refrigerated starter, bring it to room temperature and give it three daily feedings one day prior to
