Oh the Joy of Proofing Yeast

Hello all,

I just had to completely be a nerd and comment on how much fun I had last night watching my yeast proof. I was making pizza dough out of the bread bakers apprentice. mmmm. Sitting at my kitchen table the yeast bowl caught my eye. I looked over just in time to see the little poofs of yeast exploding under the surface of the water in a tiny white mushroom clouds. Extremely satisfying.

Nerds also watch as their wine ferments... :-)

It is satisfying, isn't it?
