How to Make Yeast at Home ⋆ My German Recipes

Are you a baker in need of yeast, because the store shelves are bare? Why not make your own? No, I’m not talking about sourdough. This post, from The Purple Almond Wellness Kitchen shows how to make “yeast water”, which can be used in place of commercial yeast. I have not yet tried this method, but will be doing so over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for updates.

As I was searching youtube for a DIY vanilla sugar recipe, I stumbled across this youtube channel MY GERMAN RECIPES. I have German ancestry and grew up eating German food, so I was curious about her recipes. On the channel, I saw this video on making your own yeast (NOT SOURDOUGH). I knew I HAD to share it. This is a recipe for making a “yeast water”. She indicates to use 1/2 cup (100 ml) per 500 grams of flour. This should be equivalent to 1 packet of commercial yeast. This 1/2 cup of yeast water will replace a 1/2 cup of the liquid in the recipe

If you’ve tried to find yeast at the store, you may have been greeted with empty shelves. I know flour and yeast are often out of stock at my store.


  • 500 ml of filtered water
  • 1 – 2 Dates without sulfur
