Made bread. This time it did rise but I kind of cheated -I gave up on home-made yeast out of spores in the air and used active yeast. It was quite fluffy and tasty (bit of olive oil, etc) but still, kind of cheating.Will persevere with the attempts at home made yeast and see what happens. Maybe some alien spores will grow in it and multiply and take over the world and it will all be my fault but you never know.

Is it sourdough you're trying? I hear that's a bit easier although haven't tried it yet. i am lazy and use the bread machine and active yeast.

Yeah -and failing so far on the home made starter yeast front. Will try again in the coming week with a different recipe -it should be easy, you put a jar with flour, water and sugar/honey/fruit peel/whatever to collect yeast from the air and grow it, but hasn't worked here so far.
