My pet....home made yeast

←This is my pet, green apple yeast.

I bake bread 3-4 times a week using both commercial yeast and natural yeast.

You can buy "natural yeast" or "organic dry yeast" at some stores but I use this water yeast for my bread.
I learned how to make my bread with my original yeast from various Japanese books and Japanese web sites.
Why Japanse sites?

I simply could not find good English web sites that explain how to cultivate yeast from fresh fruits and dry fruits.
So now I put my knowledge down on this blog for the people who are interested in making their own bread with their own yeast.
I am not a professional baker so I might not do things "right".
If you find any incorrect statements please let me know and teach me the correct ways.

Let's enjoy baking!

I am Japanese, who bake bread with homemade yeast 2~3 times a week. When I was living in California, no one believed that I actually grow water yeast from fruits and veges. I did not know it is more common activity in Japan than other places. I call my yeasts as my pets as well. Please post your recent baked goods.

I also wonder why ppl in US do not bake with kobo-chan.
Kobo-cha is kawaii desune.

Today I baked a ficelle and an epi with ko-bo. I will upload the pics later.

talk to you again.

I've been looking for how to make yeast for the past couple of years. I'm training to become a pastry chef and I'm really excited in trying this out. Thank you for making this blog

Thank you for this fabulous blog. YEARS ago I made yeast from hints from Carol Field's recipes & other research but then lost my cobbled together notes. This is a breakthrough. Thanks again & happy baking!!!
