Have you grown yeast?

Has anyone here tried to grow their own cake yeast (fresh compressed)?  I have some fermenters and carboys for wine making and i'm thinking about using them to grow yeast on molasses for baking.

You're making things too complicated. Making your own yeast is pretty darned easy. Flour, water, counter-space and some patience are all you really need.

 

Bob (my 9 month old batch, and always, always, always name your yeasts) has been burbling along quite nicely. Wendy who was almost 3 years old got thrown out by a "I don't understand why you had whatever that was in the fridge" gf.
