Creating a yeast monster!

I can make fun of myself quite easily!  And I don't mind sharing.  I mean, who doesn't like a good "oops" moment in the kitchen!?

A few days ago I was going to start the yeast before adding it to my homemade dandelion wine.  I added some yeast to a cup with a little sugar and a bit of water, a quick stir and left it for a minute.  When I checked to see if it was foaming and reacting, it was not.  No worries.  I didn't recall how old my yeast was and although I keep it in the refrigerator I thought maybe it was old and wouldn't work.

I grabbed the container, added a couple more teaspoons of yeast to the cup and left the room to work in the office for a bit.  About 10 minutes later I came into the kitchen to find this little monster on my counter.  Yes, my yeast was fine!   Ooops!
