This yeast rises FAST if you put your covered bowl or pan of dough in the sink with some warm water (or placed in a slightly warmed oven) and it works far better than expensive "bread-machine yeast" if you use a bread-machine.
If you make a lot of sweet dough which requires more sugar, then add some citric acid and powdered milk to help aid the yeast to rise (about 1/2 teaspoon citric acid and 1 teaspoon powdered milk per batch of bread dough) or you can buy Saf's 'special' yeast (gold package) for doughs that use more sugar.
If you've been disappointed with your baking endeavors in the past, it was probably the crappy yeast and not your baking skills, so get thee some quality baking yeast and you'll have success at long last.
This yeast is amazing. Once I figured out the exact amount to use with my machine I've been getting beautifully rounded, fine textured whole wheat loaves every single time. It's stunningly better than the stuff you buy in the grocery store. I've been following the other reviewers' advice on how to store and keep the yeast, since I think I've got enough for several years. I wasn't quite clear on how much yeast I was buying here. One pound seemed a better deal than the grocery stores offer. But four pounds . . . it's practically free.
no smell of bread or other old wives tales. this is a fast fermenting yeast that does the above recipe perfectly, due to speed of ferment it is cloudy even after cold crashing. whatever, this isnt for competitions, just tasty brew in 2 weeks for ~$3 gal
Plus, I paid for four lbs what I would have paid for a single jar. I open up one package, put it in a container in the fridge, and store the rest in the freezer. My understanding is that they'll last two years past the expiry date that way. :)
