Does fridge kill yeast

Answered By: Herbert Nelson Date: created: Nov 19 2022

Can yeast sit in water too long

Answered By: Samuel Lewis Date: created: Dec 26 2022

Water below 70°F may not be warm enough to activate the yeast, but rising the dough in a warm room will activate it-it just might take several hours. Water that’s too hot can damage or kill yeast. The damage threshold is 100°F for cake yeast, 120°F for active dry, and 130°F for instant. All yeasts die at 138°F.

Answered By: Steven Kelly Date: created: Mar 15 2022

Once the dough has risen once, and you’ve kneaded it down, oil the top of the dough slightly, cover with plastic wrap or place in a ziplock bag.

What can I do with old active dry yeast

Answered By: Robert Cook Date: created: Jul 12 2022

You can continue to use it as yeast, as long as you check first to make sure it’s still alive. Sprinkle the yeast into the lukewarm liquid with a small amount of the sugar (if using) and let it “bloom” for a few minutes. If it grows and you get beige plaques of floating yeast, it’s fine to use in baking.
