Yeast Nutrition

April 14, 2011 - 3:32pm -- Kiint

First, I should point out that I am not a Sourdough fan, I have always been someone who prefers to add yeast and make quick breads for family and friends at the drop of a hat (such as a phonecall from a friend dropping around for a visit) and to this end I have spent some time trying to find the best yeast activation nutrient. I have spent quite a few years trying to find things that work, I think I have worked through dextrose powder, to the various malts, molasses and ever other conceivable combination of each including adding some ascorbic acid to the mix.
