Question about SAF GOLD Instant Yeast

August 15, 2007 - 12:42pm -- ehanner

I was looking at the latest King Arthur catalog and I noticed they sell a version of SAF Instant yeast called GOLD. It's supposedly better for sweet breads and acidic sourdough breads. I read in the BBA where Peter observed french bakers adding commercial yeast to the dough depending on activity on the morning of the bake I believe. I don't recall him mentioning what type of yeast they added.
