Hi from Ohio

Just joined this group as I found The Fresh Loaf when looking for how to substitute regular yeast for instant yeast.  Looks like the bread turned out's still cooling.

I'm a novice fact I've been without an oven for nearly a year.  Managed to do some baking in a toaster oven so if anyone is stuck with just that I might have a tip or two.  Just got my new oven last week and it's heavenly.

Another Ohio introduction

Hi there, I'm also from Ohio.  I have been a member of TFL for a couple of years but, honestly I think this is my first post!  I have been baking bread, rolls and pastry for longer than I care to admit.  A friend recently gave me some sourdough starter, which is what brought me back to the forums in earnest.  It's been interesting to learn about sourdough, and I really like baking without commercial yeast.  The advice and recipes here have been very helpful- thank you!
