To Know When Yeast Is Good Or Bad

When you perceive your yeast working, observe if it works quick, sharp

and strong, and increasing in bulk nearly double what it was before it

began to work, with a sweet sharp taste, and smell, with the appearance

of a honey comb, with pores, and always changing place, with a bright

lively colour, then you may pronounce your yeast good; on the contrary,

if it is dead, or flat and blue looking, with a sour taste, and smell,

(if any at all,) then you may pronounce it bad, and unfit for use, and

of course must be renewed.
