Amish Friendship Bread Starter

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 cups white sugar, divided
3 cups milk
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. In a
2 quart container glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine 1 cup
flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when milk is
added. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover
loosely and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day
cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.
On days 2 thru 4; stir starter with a spoon. Day 5; stir in 1 cup
flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Days 6 thru 9; stir only.
Day 10; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Remove 1 cup
to make your first bread, give 2 cups to friends along with this
recipe, and your favorite Amish Bread recipe. Store the remaining 1
cup starter in a container in the refrigerator, or begin the 10 day
process over again (beginning with step 2).
Editor's Note

Once you have made the starter, you will consider it Day One, and
thus ignore step 1 in this recipe and proceed with step 2. You can
also freeze this starter in 1 cup measures for later use. Frozen
starter will take at least 3 hours at room temperature to thaw before
