Is it okay to use old yeast

Answered By: Christopher Garcia Date: created: Apr 29 2022

Bread yeast is a living organism. Over time, it loses its potency and ability to make dough rise. Yeast packaging has an expiration date and it is best to use it prior to this date. If dough is made with expired yeast, it is possible to rescue the slow rising dough by using a new package of yeast.
