  • In a large bowl or jar, mix the yeast with the water.
  • If you are using active dry yeast, let the mixture stand for about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the flour onto the yeast mixture and whisk it in to form a thick batter.
  • It is not essential for the batter to be smooth.
  • Cover it with plastic wrap and let the batter stand in a warm (80-85°F) place for about 24 hours, or until it is frothy.
