For a long time I have used this yeast for making bread
The bread has been OK, nothing really to complain about, it rose it baked it worked well with whatever flour or technique I used, it was bread.
The other week I spotted this one in the shop
I gave it a go over the week end
It made a lovely loaf, rose very well, produced a very light airy loaf, was it coincidence
Today I made another loaf, I left it to rise while I had a chat on the phone with a friend, when I checked the bread, it had risen too well and spilled over the side of the tin a real gooey mess,
I took the dough out cleaned up the mess re-kneaded and left it to rise again, I got distracted and once again it rose and spilled out of the tin, once again I cleaned up re-kneaded and this time stay with it, checking on what it was doing.
Again it rose but this time made it into the oven, it was a lovely light bread again, so I am in the camp of this yeast
For me it gives a lovely texture to the bread, I find it is more responsive than the one in the green tin.
What yeast do you use?
