Newbie ? Part II - now i'm REALLY confused

December 7, 2010 - 5:43pm -- gringogigante

I tried to go at it again tonight using the temperature info y'all gave me last night. I was making some Challa bread, and it didn't even rise at all! It's like there was no yeast in there at all!!  This is the second night in a row like this.....

I was so frustrated, so I proofed the Instant Yeast and a packet of Active Dry Yeast that was in the cabinet to see how it would compare. I proofed them in warm water, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of yeast.  Suprisingly, they both rose just fine!!
