how do you make your wild yeast though?

I tried to make it at home, first with 50% of rye flour 50% of wheat flour and 60% of water (baker's percentage) then 100% of wheat flour, 130% of water so on so on... nothing, no bubble, no rising, just sour and smell alcohol. I use fuji water.

I have an heirloom starter I received as a gift. I use white flour and tap water to keep it going. I've never started from scratch, but I've read that rye in particular is hard to work with without it going bad on you. You could try making a wheat starter and then convert a part of it to include more rye for individual recipes you plan to bake.
