    Freekah......anybody Used It Yet?

    I heard a couple of guys come in & ask about this grain when I was at my local HBS this morning.

Came home & Googled it & it appears to be a traditional middle-eastern wheat that is...

    Has any body heard of these liquid yeasts? I was reading a book that mentioned them, but I have scored a big zero in my search for more info. I googled, I rang a couple of HBS but nothing.
