Homemade Yeast - Update

This was about 2 days later (than this). There's some real leavening power now! As well as some alcohol.

I had another jar going (these are re-used jelly jars) but it formed a hairy mold on top. I fed that back to our municipal water. I don't want to rinse the raisins since I feel I may wash away yeast. But it looks like there are other things growing on raisins that I don't know about.

The raisins that formed mold were Newman's Own Organic. The raisins that gave good yeast growth were Trader Joe's Organic Thompson.

Would you be able to use the liquid after, for something?
