Doves Farm Quick Yeast (UK)

March 8, 2011 - 11:51am -- chubbyarse

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.
