1/2 tsp dry yeast
2 Tbsp warm water
3 cups sugar
3 cups flour
3 cups milk

Directions:
Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add a pinch of the sugar. Let stand until yeast begins to foam. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup flour in a large nonmetallic bowl. Stir in 1 cup milk gradually. Stir in yeast mixture with wooden spoon. Let stand, loosely covered, at room temperature. This is day 1 (or Day 10 for those receiving Starter from a friend). Days 2 thru 4: Stir daily. Day 5: Pour into larger container if necessary. Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk; mix well. Days 6-9: Stir daily. Day 10: Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk; mix well. Pour 1 cup mixture into each of 3 containers. Keep 1 container for yourself (to repeat the cycle) and give the other 2 to friends. Be sure to include instructions for "feeding" the Starter and the recipe for Amish Friendship Bread. Prepare bread using the remaining starter. I actually used a gallon size Ziplock bag to contain my Starter. You can add the flour, sugar, milk; burp the bag and mix it by kneading the bag gently. When you pass the Starter on to friends, just pass it on in another Ziplock bag.
