Apparently, some people are hoarding more than just toilet paper and non-perishables

Biologist and yeast expert Sudeep Agarwala recently went to Twitter to share a simple and straightforward life-hack with people who love bread and want to make some at home, but don’t have the yeast to do it.

Sudeep’s recipe for yeast includes dried fruit, flour, and water. Oh, and, of course, time and patience.

Fresh fruit works too, but it’s best to not wash it prior. Since now is the worst time to not wash things, do it at your own risk, or substitute with things you’ve grown yourself and trust not to wash.

Read on for the instructions on how to make your own yeast.

 

In response to the shortage of yeast, biologist Sudeep Agarwala tweeted a simple DYI at home recipe for it

All that Sudeep’s recipe actually needs is dried fruit, flour, water, and a little bit of patience

Now, this ain’t your average recipe: Sudeep detailed the process in a playful and enthusiastic way

So here’s a quick rundown:

Take the fruit, toss it in a jar, and add 30 to 40 milliliters (2–3 tablespoons) of water to the mix. Stir it to see it become a little bit cloudy, which is the yeast.

Then, add the same amount of flour to make loose, wet dough. No need to get fancy as old flour works just fine, and white flour, according to Sudeep, works best. Non-organic and gluten-rich flour does the job too.

Keep the mix warm—not hot, not cold, but warm. 12 hours later, you should see bubbles, which are caused by the yeast inside the mix.

24–48 hours later, the paste should loosen up, at which point you need to take a small bit of this mix and add it to 30–40 milliliters of water. Add flour and repeat the process. This time around, it should come to life and the bubbles should appear faster.

 

If at first you don’t succeed, there is always next time

Sudeep also gave some tips on what else you can use to make your own yeast, including beer and wine

Sudeep also encourages people to be creative: use old bread or bread crumbs or maybe use a bit of ale or wine dregs and add them to some flour and water.

The yeast expert’s tweets have since then gone viral, garnering over 26,000 retweets and 114,000 likes with that much recognition on a number of other social media.

Heaps of people came to thank Sudeep for this life-hack and a good handful of them also tweeted questions on some of the nuances of making yeast, which were not left unanswered.

Solution, People are hoarding Yeast, not bread. With people being at home more during the lock downs and quarantines, they're baking their own breads.

This guy's helping by teaching us how to make our own yeast. Excellent information, and I'm bookmarking the method, just in case. Thanks Izi!

The real irony of this situation (as pointed out above) is that somehow there are flour shortages in supply chains around the world, despite fresh bread being easily available. [email protected]#kers hoarding the world over.
