DIY Yeast

I've been doing some research on harvesting your own yeast. I tried the fruit water method with grapes and clementines but ended up with a pretty weak yeast.

I'm not sure I want to spend the money on a crapload of flour to just harvest it from the air, and not sure if it will turn out anyways.

Does anyone have any tips for my yeast conundrum?

I moved to Korea awhile ago and I just don't want to have to eat the highly processed stuff they have here.

Any help would be appreciated, I just don't know enough about yeast.
