Default How to make a yeast starter - Pictorial (updated)

I figured it was time to update the old "how to make a starter" pictorial that has been floating around the forums for some years now.

A higher resolution image of this pictorial can be found here.

Thanks for the pictorial. I love the old comics style. As a complete beginner, I appreciate it.

Can you use dry yeast or does it have to be liquid yeast?

It is not recommended that you make a starter with dry yeast, just rehydrate it and pitch.
