Doves Farm Quick Yeast (UK)

Hi Everyone,

I'm a new BBA baker - and I've been using the 7g sachets that you can buy in most UK supermarkets. However, I've bought some Doves Farm Quick Yeast, and wondered how I should be using it.

The BBA cites the following:

100% Fresh Yest = 50% Active Dry Yeast = 33% instant yeast

So, which of the categories does the Doves yeast fall into? Hopefully somewhere else here is in the UK and using this yeast type.

It's instant yeast.  (I use the BBA ratios and find Dove Farm to be very reliable.)

Thanks for the reply, that's great news. Quite cheap for £1.10 at Waitrose!
