Hello! Anyone that knows an easy 14recipet of a Bread whitout Yeast? couse i don't have yeast at home normally xD would be happy to get a 14recipet whit out "wierd" stuff in it xD couse i live in sweden, so yeah, Hope you know something like that ^.^ (ah,sorry for all the smilyes but i'm used to making them in post so umm..yeah >.<)
What the hey? The plan was to make a batch of ciabatta bread but even though the bag of yeast from Costco had an expiration date six months from now, when I proofed it, it showed no signs of life. The yeast dissolved just fine but all I got was cloudy water - no "blooms" floating to the surface like I'm used to seeing. I made a poolish from it anyway.
I have a question as to the life span of yeast. It arose as a result of reading the following recipe listed below. And my question is that if waiting 24 hours is good for starter whether or not taste is improved by waiting longer than that ? I would think that the yeast would be on the down side by 24 hours; yes? The recipe is from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Authentic-German-Bread-Bauernbrot/Detail.aspx
I am including the whole recipe so as to not quote out of context......
Has anyone else tried reculturing the sediment at the bottom of a bottle of beer and using it in bread?
The bread bible points out instant yeast as having a greater concentration of live yeast than the active. Other than that is there any reason to use one as opposed to the other?
