does it keep BETTER in the freezer than in the refrigerator?

I keep my SAS instant yeast in the freezer, I buy in bulk and its still active after two years. :wink:

We had a bakery close several years ago. We bought three large packages of yeast and froze them. We thawed one at the time and kept in the fridge. Each one lasted a year or more. Love that yeast. We buy at Sams now and do the same.

I once got a free bag of SAF instant yeast at a bakery show, used about a teaspoon to bake some bread, and placed the bag in the back of the refrigerator in a plastic container. About five years later I decided to bake bread again. The yeast was fine... perhaps not as active as fresher yeast would have been, but I didn't do a comparison test. I've baked many loaves of bread with that yeast with no problem.

I bought a bread machine last week and so far it's been a bit hit and miss. It's the yeast that's confusing me. I bought two types, quick action yeast which is in 7g sachets and active dried yeast which is in a big tub. The problem is: the recipes that came with the breadmaker require 1 'sachet' but there's no mention of how much yeast should be in 1 sachet. On the back of the quick action yeast is a recipe for bread, but that gives yeast measurements in teaspoons. It seems a bit silly to open a sachet and start measuring. Is there a general rule with yeast - maybe so much quick action yeast is the same as so much active dried yeast?

I'd appreciate any input :D

I assume your "quick action" yeast is probably the same as our "rapid rise" yeast. If so, this might help:

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

A basic rule of thumb is that if fresh (cake) yeast = 100%, then active dry yeast = 50% and quick-rise yeast = 33%. By that reckoning, 7g of the quick-rise would correspond to 10g of the dry. Most recipes, in my opinion, call for too much yeast anyway...but that's just a personal preference thing. I'll generally halve the yeast and double the rising time, because it makes for better tasting bread.

I made this honey whole wheat, with (I don't have the recipe in front of me, I am sad to say) milk, honey, butter, a combo of bread flour and whole wheat. I used rapid rise yeast instead of compressed yeast. I could not find compressed yeast ANYWHERE I looked so I went with the rapid rise. it came out really dense and then I realized anytime I try to make bread with the rapid rise it does not rise as much and the bread comes out real dense and heavy. It does not have the light "airy" texture. It almost has a cake like texture.

I realize with out a recipe this may be hard to analyize, but could it be the yeast? Since I cannot find compressed like the recipe calls for, can I use plain, non rapid rise yeast? Does anyone know of good yeast?

thanks!

How much Rapid Rise did you use? Is this from a jar or a packet? I have made this substitution in highly-flavored breads like this in the past without much trouble, as long as the yeast is alive, but that's always the trick, esp. with rapid rise where you don't typically "bloom" it first.

From everything I've read, rapid rise yeast should give you as good a rise, if not better than, regular active dry yeast. And it's easier to handle, as it doesn't require proofing and can be mixed directly into the dry ingredients.

Have you ever made this recipe with compressed yeast, and did it come out great?

Are you using proper substitution quantities? According to Peter Reinhart, 1 T of compressed fresh yeast = 1 tsp. of instant yeast.

CKatCook, assuming that the recipe(s) is/are correct, I would guess (1) your instant yeast is old, or (2) that the yeast needs a little hydration before incorporation in the dough (unlikely for rapid rise), or (3) you are activating/hydrating the yeast before incorporating it and it is dying/losing power because of this (temp?/age?). Under most circumstances, there should not be such marked differences between recipes made with compressed yeast and the same recipes made with the correct equivalent amount of a dry yeast (and there's some latitude there).

Check the expiry/manufacturing date on your yeast. And try making the recipe again with active dry yeast, dissolving first in warm water (90-110 degrees) for five minutes or so.

The manufacturers usually recommend ridiculous amounts-try just a teaspoonful.

my understanding is that the only thing "rapid" about rapid rise yeast is that it contains a higher percentage of living organisms than regular dry yeast. so for equal measures, you're actually putting more yeast into the dough. if you cut back the quantity by the right amount, the results should be virtually identical.

my suspicion is that fresh yeast is popular because the low percentage of live organisms forces you to use a lot of it, which can contribute more yeasty flavors. some people like that effect.

I think this is basically right, though the particle size is also smaller, and I believe a different yeast strain in used (these two facts help to explain why you don't proof instant yeast - it grows too quickly and is wasted before it gets into the dough).

I think the proofing may be the issue. I placed the yeast in 110 (I measured) water and let it set until there was a "head" on it like beer. Then added in the milk, honey, butter all heated to 110 degrees. Then added to the dry ingridents. And it would not rise for nothing. The recipe called for it to be punched down and risen, about 2 more times, but I could barely get it to rise once. I even turned on my oven and placed it on top the oven to see if that would help.

I used the dry packet, the recipe called for 2 oz compressed, I used two packet "compartments". It comes in a packet that is sectioned off into three sections.

My understanding is that instant( rapid-rise) yeast is specifically designed for single-rise breads, and should not be proofed, but rather mixed directly in with the dry ingredients. I use it for breads with a rise-punchdown-rise cycle, but I've never tried a second punchdown-rise with instant. Of course, anyone out there who knows better, please correct me!

I used Fleischman's Instant/Rapid yeast this weekend to make cinnamon buns. One packet (I think it has 7 or 9g in each of the 3 compartments) to approx. 4 cups of flour. I added the yeast to the dry ingredients, then mixed in the liquids. It more than doubled in 2 hours, punched down, filled, rolled, cut and doubled again in 45 minutes.

I think the suggestions of old yeast may be on to something. . . how long have you had it? Or, if you just bought it, does it have an expiry date on it? If it's good, it should give you a good rise.

I love rapid rise or instant yeast and use it as my go to yeast. It is the same price at Active Dry yeast but you need to use 1/3 of the amount. Basically the above theory is what I believe happened. Do NOT mix the yeats with water and let it proof. stir it directly with the flour. I made this mistake once and sure enough, my bread was dense like yours.

I have another packet of the yeast, but I hesitate (sp?) to use it. The bread taste good....very good. But man, cake bread....LOL.

I think I will go get some regular yeast and see if that makes a difference. I am curious now about how it will work. The recipe really calls for it to be punched down and shaped 2 times before the final rise.

This may be a long night.....

Yep - the proofing probably blew the rapid rise yeast's load.

And, as mentioned above, if your recipe calls for 2 oz. compressed yeast, you'll need to use approx. 2 tsps. of rapid rise yeast (per Peter Reinhart).

about one half to one third of the fresh yeast by weight...so 1 oz of instant if the recipe calls for 2 oz of fresh.

and please don't proof in warm liquid. if you want to dissolve the yeast in liquid, you can do so, but cold or straight from the cold tap.

with any kind of yeast, be careful when you're putting it in contact with the full amount of sugar and liquid that the recipe calls for before adding it to the flour/dry items. this can give the yeast too much food to deal with and it can also cause it to either "blow its load" before mixing or it can sort of kill it off.

if you need to, stir the instant yeast in with the water and honey, but mix it right away with the dry ingredients.

i've never had any problems using instant and getting more than one fermentation from it.

I am new into bread and would like to hear from experienced barker the prons

and cons of fresh yeast vs commercial yeast. I know fresh yeast is very tedious

and time consuming wheras commercial yeast is convenient.

Every eco-system has its own mircoorganism population and I always marvel and attracted by its distinct taste of european hard bread like somerset cider bread, rye, caraway & raisin bread, olive bread, walnut, pain de campagne and multiseed bread.

I would like to know how to make fresh yeast?

Thanks you

When I think of "fresh yeast", I think of cakes of compressed yeast that need refrigeration.

But, what I think you are referring to is a "maintained sourdough starter".

Perhaps you could clarify this for us.

      i had a whole post typed up, but alas, it's been lost.
       
      i searched the forums but didn't find a thread dedicated to fried breads, thus.
       
      yesterday, i fried up some toutons to go with a beet soup. toutons are the popular newfoundland version of fried bread, historically made with bits of dough left overnight and fried in the morning with salt pork fat. like in the south, they were/are often served with molasses, butter, and/or beans. on the rock you'll find any number of restaurants serving them, some of which have a whole touton menu with various toppings or spreads. a lot of restaurants deep fry them instead of pan fry them out of ease of cookery, which has become a point of contention among many newfoundlanders.
       
      i had a bowl of leftover dough in the fridge from making khachapuris a couple of days ago, so i portioned out a couple of balls, patted them flat, let them proof for twenty minutes or so, and then pan-fried them in a mix of rice bran oil and butter. 
       
      fried breads have a long history all over, often but not always as a sustenance food for cold weather climes. the navajo are known for their version of frybread from the 1800s, but it's commonly believed that first nations groups of north america also had their own forms of bannock made with local ingredients before it was re-imported from scotland.
       
      anyway i'd like to investigate fried breads more; post your own favourites and experiments here.

      A SANDWICH TO GO
       
      Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a snack which you can grab and eat "on the go". I know that it is unhealthy. We should celebrate eating and eat calmly and with deliberation. However, sometimes the day is too short for everything on our schedule and we still have to eat. Admittedly, we can sin and go for some fast food, but it is healthier and tastier to prepare something quickly in our own kitchen.

      Today, Camembert cheese and cranberries in a fresh, crunchy roll take the lead role. It sounds easy and yummy, doesn't it? Try it and get on with your day . Today I used a homemade cranberry preserve which was left over from dessert, but if you like you can buy your own.

      Ingredients:
      2 fresh rolls (your favourite ones)
      150g of camembert cheese
      1 handful of lettuce
      2 teaspoons of butter
      2 teaspoons of pine nuts or sunflower seeds
      preserve
      100g of fresh cranberries
      3 tablespoons of brown sugar
      100ml of apple juice

      Wash the cranberries. Put the cranberries, sugar and apple juice into a pan with a heavy bottom and boil with the lid on for 10-12 minutes, stirring from time to time. Try it and if necessary add some sugar. Leave to cool down. Cut the rolls in half and spread with the butter. Put some lettuce on one half of the roll. Slice the camembert cheese and arrange it on the lettuce. Put a fair portion of the cranberry preserve on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with the roast pine nuts or sunflower seeds and cover with the second half of the roll.

      Enjoy your meal!

      Today I would like to share with you a recipe for a slightly different sandwich. Instead of traditional vegetables, I recommend strawberry salsa, and rather than a slice of ham – a golden grilled slice of Halloumi cheese. Only one thing is missing – a fresh and fragrant bread roll.

      Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese made with sheep's milk or a mixture of sheep's, goat's and cow's milk. It is semihard and so flexible that it is excellent for frying and barbecuing, and it is great fresh too.

      Ingredients (for two people)
      2 fresh rolls of your choice
      2 big lettuce leaves
      4 slices of Halloumi cheese
      2 teaspoons of butter
      salsa:
      8 strawberries
      half a chili pepper
      2 tablespoons of minced peppermint leaves
      ¼ a red onion
      2 tablespoons of chopped almond without the skin
      1 teaspoon of honey
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      2 tablespoons of balsamic sauce

      Start by preparing the salsa. Wash the strawberries, remove the shanks and cube them. Dice the onion and chili pepper. Mix the strawberries with the onion, chili pepper, peppermint and almonds. Spice it up with honey and lemon juice. Leave in the fridge for half an hour. Grill the slices of Halloumi cheese until they are golden. Cut the fresh rolls in half and spread them with butter. Put a lettuce leaf on each half of roll, then a slice of the Halloumi cheese, one tablespoon of salsa, another slice of cheese and two tablespoons of salsa. Spice it up with balsamic sauce. Cover with the other half of the roll. Prepare the second sandwich in the same way. Serve at once while the cheese is still hot.

      Enjoy your meal!

      How to Make Rye Sourdough Bread
      I don't know what it is about bread, but it is my favorite thing to make and eat. A freshly baked loaf of bread solves a world of problems. I was lucky enough to get to be one of the main bakers when I worked at the Herbfarm. We baked Epi, Baguettes, Rolls, Pretzels and so much more.
       

      Rye Sourdough Wood Oven Baked Bread
       
      My fondest memory when I worked there was our field trip to the Bread Lab(wait something this cool came out of WSU, of course!) here in Washington. They grow thousands of varieties of wheat and have some pretty cool equipment to test gluten levels, protein, genetics and so on. I nerded out so hard.
       
      What came out of that trip was this bread. Now I can't recall the exact flour we got from them, but using a basic bread and rye will do the trick. We used to get a special flour for our 100 mile menu. This was where we were limited to only serving food from 100 miles away. So finding a wheat farm that made actual hulled wheat in 100 miles was a miracle. The year before...the thing we made, was closer to hard tack.
       
      Now if you don't have a starter, I recommend starting one! It is a great investment!
       
      Rye Sourdough
      1000 g flour (60% Bread Flour, 40% Rye)
      25 g salt
       
      75 g of honey/molasses
      200 g of Rye starter 
      650 g of water, cold
      Equipment
      Baker Scale (or other gram scale)
      Bench Cutter
      Bread Razor (you could also use one of those straight razors)
       
      Start by taking the cold water, yeast and Honey and mix together and let sit for 10-15 minutes
       
      I know, some of you just freaked out, cold water? Won't that kill the yeast.
       
      Nope, the yeast just needs to re hydrate. I prefer using cold water to slow the yeast down. That way the lactobacillus in the starter has  a good amount of time to start making lactic acid, and really get to flavor town!
       
      While that is sitting, I mix the flour and the salt together(How many times I have forgotten to salt the bread).
       
      Now mix the two products with a kneading hook for 3-5 minutes, only until thoroughly mixed but not yet at the window pane stage of kneading.
       
       
      Instead, place into a bowl and set a timer for one hour. Then when that hour is up, push the dough down and fold all the corners in
       
      Repeat this step 2-3 more times, pending on the outside temperature.
       
      If you happen to have those cool bowls to shape round loafs! Awesome, use them. I would break the boules into 3 balls of about 333 grams
       
      If not then just put the dough in the fridge and do the steps below the next day.
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Once you have bouled the bread, can put it into the fridge and let it sit over night
       
      Again, this lets the bacteria, really get to work(misconception is the yeast adds the sour flavor, nope, think yogurt!)
       
      Now on the next day, heat up whatever form of oven you plan to use. We used a brick oven but if you just have a normal oven, that is fine. Crank it to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
       
      If you have not bouled your bread yet, go back and watch the video and break the dough down into three balls of abut 333 grams. Then place the balls on a lightly greased sheet pan. Let sit for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

      If you have used the fancy bowls then turn the the bread out on a lightly greased sheet pan, without the bowl and let temper for 15-30 minutes.
       
       
      If your oven is steam injected, build up a good blast of steam.
       
      If not, throw in a few ice cubes and close the door or put a bath of hot water inside.
       
      The steam is what creates the sexy crust!
       
      Let it build up for a few minutes!
       
      Right before you put the bread into the oven use a bread razor to slice the top of the bread.
       
      Place the dough balls into the oven and douse with another blast of steam or ice and close the oven.
       
      Let them bake for 13 minutes at 450 degrees. Then turn the loaves and bake for another 10 minutes.
       
      Remove when the crust is as dark as you want and the internal temperature exceeds 190 degrees Fahrenheit.
       
      Now pull out and make sure to let cool off of the sheet pan with room to breath underneath. You don't want your crust steaming!
       
      Now here is the hardest part, wait at least 20 minutes before getting into the bread. Also, cutting into bread to early really seems to come out poorly. I would rip the bread until 1-2 hours has passed.
       
      Now serve it with your favorite butter, goat butter or whipped duck fat!

      ANDIE'S ABSOLUTELY ADDICTING BREAD & BUTTER PICKLES
      Here’s the thing about pickles: if you’ve never made them, they may seem to be an overwhelming (and possibly mysterious) project. Our listener Andie – who has offered some really valuable help to the show several times in the past – has sent this recipe which provides an opportunity to “try your hand” at pickle-making without much effort. Andie suggests that making a small batch, and storing the pickles in the refrigerator (without “processing”) can get you started painlessly. Our Producer Lisa says that the result is so delicious that you won’t be able to keep these pickles on hand - even for the 3-4 months that they’ll safely keep!
      The basics are slicing the cucumbers and other veggies, tossing them with salt and crushed ice and allowing them to stand for awhile to become extra-crisp. You then make a simple, sweet and spicy syrup, (Andie does this in the microwave), rinse your crisp veggies, put them in a jar, pour the syrup over, and keep them in the refrigerator until they’re “pickled” – turning the jar upside down each day. In about 2 weeks you’ll have pickles – now how much easier could that be? If you are inspired, I hope you’ll try these – and enjoy!
      MAKES ABOUT 1 QUART.
      FOR THE PICKLES:
      4 to 6 pickling cucumbers (cucumbers should be not much larger than 1 inch in diameter, and
      4 to 5 inches long)
      1/2 to 3/4 of one, medium size onion.
      1/2 red bell pepper.
      1/4 cup, pickling salt (coarse kosher salt)
      2 quarts, cracked ice
      water to cover
      2 tablespoons, mustard seed.
      1 heaping teaspoon, celery seed
      FOR THE SYRUP:
      1 1/2 cups, vinegar
      *NOTE: Use cider or distilled white vinegar, do not use wine vinegar.
      1 1/2 cups, sugar
      2 heaping teaspoons, pickling spice mix.
      PREPARE THE PICKLES:
      Carefully wash the cucumbers and bell pepper. Slice all vegetables very thin, using a food processor with a narrow slicing blade, or by hand, or using a V-slicer or mandoline. Toss the sliced vegetables together in a glass or crockery bowl large enough to hold twice the volume of the vegetables. Sprinkle the salt over the vegetables, add the cracked ice, toss again to blend all ingredients and add water to just barely cover the vegetables. Place a heavy plate on top of the vegetables to keep them below the top of the liquid.
      *Set aside for 4 hours.
      PREPARE THE SYRUP:
      Place the vinegar, sugar and pickling spices in a 4-quart Pyrex or other microwavable container (the large Pyrex measure works very well)
      Microwave on high for 15 to 20 minutes. [if a microwave is not available, simmer the syrup in a narrow saucepan on the stovetop, over low heat, for the same length of time.] Allow the syrup to cool. Strain the syrup and discard the spices.
      ASSEMBLE THE PICKLES:
      Place one wide-mouth quart canning jar (or two wide-mouth pint jars) with their lids in a pot of water to cover, place over medium heat and bring the water to a simmer (180 degrees). Remove the pot from the heat and allow jar(s) and lid(s) to remain in the hot water until needed.
      *After the 4 hours are up (crisping the vegetables as described above) pour the vegetables into a large colander and rinse well. The cucumber slices should taste only slightly salty. Return the rinsed vegetables to the bowl, add the mustard seeds and celery seeds and toss well until evenly distributed. Set aside.
      Return the syrup to the microwave, microwave on high for 8 to 10 minutes [or heat the syrup on the stovetop] until an instant read thermometer shows the temperature of the syrup is 190 to 200 degrees.
      Place the vegetables into one wide-mouth quart jar, or in 2 wide-mouth pint
      jars that have been scalded as described above. Pour the syrup over the vegetables, place the lids on the jar or jars, tighten well and place in the refrigerator overnight.
      The following day, turn the jar upside down - then continue to turn every day for 2 weeks. (This is to insure that the pickles are evenly flavored)
      After 2 weeks open the jar and taste. The pickles should be ready to eat.
      Pickles will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 months.
