    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/3 c warm water
    2 pkg yeast
    1 c sugar
    2 c milk

    Pour water into a bowl; sprinkle with yeast and 1 tsp. sugar. Let stand in a warm place until double in size, about 10 minutes. In a separate large bowl, combine rest of ingredients with yeast mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Cover loosely and allow to double or triple in size. Let stand overnight in warm place. Next day, stir mixture; cover loosely.

    Day 5: Add 1 cup each flour sugar and milk
    Day 6,7,8,9: Stir
    Day 10: Add 1 cup each flour, sugar and milk. Stir until smooth. Pour 1 cup mixture into each of 3 containers. Keep one for yourself, give 2 to friends. Use remaining batter for bread.

    NOTES : When all my friends have the starter, I use only 1/3 c. each flour, sugar and milk on days 5 and 10. That leaves just enough to bake with and keep it going.
