Sake Lees Yeast ② – Liquid Bread Starter

I figured I could simplifyand so I experimented with it. That recipe strains the yeast mixture, but this one uses all of the mixture.
Not straining will enhance the taste of the sake lees and make it into a richer bread. Make sure to sterilize the containers. Step 7 shows the finished starter. The bubbles will become fine if you let it sit in the fridge in Step 6. After Step 7 and fermentation the big and small bubbles will become evenly dispersed. Recipe by Miyanbo
