I want to make amoxicillin, but need penicillin to start with.

Let some bread go mouldy, and pick the most penicilliny fuzzy patches?

You should really buy a cultivated strain, penicillium is easily isolated, they are the once that turn green on your bread. But the penicillin production in the early days, based on randomly found strains, was terrible to say the least. Many, many fungal selections were done to obtain strains that produce noteworthy levels of penicillin.
