In theory, at least, you have penicillin. I must stress at this point that you should not use this homemade penicillin on any limb that you want to keep. Although you did probably get a lot of penicillium mold growing on the bread, you also got other molds. Even with the right kind of fungi growing, filtering out everything but the penicillin is difficult, and best left to the professionals. Molds make a lot of different things to kill bacteria, and many of them are harmful to humans. While there are plenty of survivalist websites that recommend clapping whatever grows on bread or citrus to your wound, and while that might even be an option sometimes after the world ends, there are better options right now, and you should take advantage of them. If you want to see how well you've done making penicillin, try growing a tray of bacteria and using the penicillin on that.

In case of apocalylse it might be easier to just loot the drugstore?

yeah but who is gonna survive 3+ weeks into a setting where you can grow medicine from food mold in the right conditions? Not that it is impossible, but hitting up a drugstore probably leads better results in an apocalypse
