Unrivaled Yeast

  • 2 ounces hops
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 quart flour
  • 6 medium-sized potatoes
Boil the hops in 4 quarts of water for half an hour. Strain and let the liquor cool to the consistency of new milk. Put in an earthen (made of clay) bowl and add salt and brown sugar. Beat up the flour with some of the liquor. Mix everything well together. Let it stand for 3 days. Then add the potatoes, boiled and mashed through a colander. Let it stand a day. Then strain and bottle and it is ready to use.

It must be stirred frequently while it is being made and kept near a fire. Be careful to keep it in a cool place for storage. Before use, shake the bottle well. It will keep in a cool place for 2 months and is best the latter part of the time. Use about the same quantity as other yeasts.
