The name of the thing that makes you wonder how it can change so much in a day must be yeast :) While there was no improvement yesterday, today I witness the dance of foams, bubbles and crusts accompanied by a bad smell. It turns out how bad the bacteria nation smells, friend. We know this dance means "feed me I'm tired" :)

organic flour

As you can see in the photo below, the yeast has risen by almost 8cm from 2oz yesterday. He says it's the day to feed the yeast, and I take the foamy crust on it and discard 80% of the yeast and add water and flour.

Normally, Cenk had reduced his water because he noticed water accumulation on the yeast crust in this part.

Let's see what happens tomorrow.

By the way, when Dear Devletşah saw my attempt to make yeast, he suggested a bread that he made himself. unkneaded bread The title was interesting indeed.

    Yeasts are not bacteria. It is a multicellular capless mushroom, for your information…
