Question about using frozen SAF Instant Yeast
Hi. I'm new to these forums. But I have a question -- I bought a one-pound bag of SAF Instant Yeast. I keep it in an airtight plastic jar in my freezer, as I don't bake bread too often.
I'm making focaccia from Peter Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice. Can I add my instant yeast to the flour straight from the freezer, or does it need to come to room temperature?
I baked a lot of bread in pastry school, but we always used fresh yeast, and the few times we did use instant, it had never been frozen.
