Reinhart's WW Sand. Bread First Try--desperate for yeast help
Help! I made my soaker and am ready to make the biga. Of course, all I have is dry activated yeast. Reinhart clearly states that if you use dry activated yeast, you should decrease the water by 2 ounces and use that 2 ounces to activate the yeast. No problem with the biga. But tomorrow when I add yeast to the final dough, there is no water from which to decrease 2 ounces.
