Answered By: Ian Young Date: created: Mar 27 2022

Proof your yeast to find out if it’s still active by adding 1 teaspoon of sugar and 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast (one envelope) to 1/4 cup of warm water. Then, wait 10 minutes. If the mixture bubbles and develops a yeasty aroma, the yeast is still good.

What happens if I put too much yeast in my bread

Answered By: Richard Baker Date: created: Sep 14 2022
