Bread Machine yeast
OK new to bread making, just got a Zojirushi bread machine. I am so new I don't really understand yet the ingrediants, so I did manage to find some Fleischmann's bread Yeast. I now understand it is actual like an instant yeast. Anyways as I understand you shouldn't let it touch water but add it too the dry ingrediants. But so far my best white bread came out when I found a website recipe that told me to put the yeast in hot water and let stand for ten minutes then add flour etc..so my question is why did this bread come out so good when I wasn't suppose to let this type of yeast I had, touch water....scatching my head on this one. The bread did come out really high, was that the only side effect of using bread yeast like it was regular active dry yeast.
