Your language skills are much better than mine.
Perhaps you could check http://www.bia-bg.com/bia/branch/brewers.htm
If homebrewing is legal in Bulgaria, perhaps they can help.

Not sure why you would want to make malt extract instead of just mashing and doing it the old fashion (fun) way.

So I will assume you mean that you can get barley, but need to malt it and kiln/roast your own specialty grains.

Brewing from grain:

Doing a mash is the first step in making malt extract, so skip the spray dehydration and just boil the nice all-grain wort.

As to yeast....If you don't have access to brewers yeast, you can use bread yeast to a lesser extent...but if you can find bottled beers that aren't filtered you can harvest the yeast from the bottles....

Here's some info on that...http://www.byo.com/departments/1361.html

Good luck to you! It may actually be fantastic beer, because I assume that your ingredients will be fresher than what most of us can get.

I am sure that a packet of dry yeast could make it through customs in , say... a birthday card. I would probably be willing to help a fellow brewer out with some if you can't get any. For God's sake don't use bread yeast!!!
