Sourest Sourdough Starter
1 pkg Yeast
2 1/4 c Warm water
2 tbs Sugar
1 tbs Vinegar
1 tsp Salt
2 c all purpose or bread flour

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water.  Add sugar vinegar, salt, and flour. Add remaining water until a creamy batter is formed. Place in a glass bowl,cover and let sit until it starts to ferment, about 3 days. It will take on a powerful boozy smell. Stir again until creamy and measure out what is called for in the recipe you wish to use.  Replenish starter with equal amounts of flour and water. Store in the fridge and bring to room temp before using. Let it sit out overnight after feeding it. This starter takes about 1 1/2 months to become really sour.
