How do I know if I killed my yeast

Answered By: Eric Thompson Date: created: Feb 27 2022

After 10 minutes, the yeast should be foamy and bubbly and expanding.

It should have expanded to fill over half of the cup/jar and have a distinct yeasty smell.

This is yeast that is alive and well.

If the yeast doesn’t bubble, foam or react – it is dead..

Can yeast sit in water too long

Answered By: Nicholas Roberts Date: created: Mar 15 2022

How long is too long to proof dough

Answered By: Evan Cooper Date: created: Jun 29 2022

If you want to let you dough proof for longer, try bulk-fermenting it in a cooler place, but don’t allow it to go longer than three hours or structure and flavor may be compromised. For the workhorse loaf, a bulk proof of approximately two hours gives us the optimal balance of flavor and texture.
