Using SAF Gold for Regular Breads
I'm about to order my batch of SAF yeast but for the life of me, I can't remember which variety of SAF instant yeast I've been using for the past 5 years! I bought a small package from Williams-Sonoma some 5 years ago and kept it in the freezer all along. I've been using it sparingly because for the most part, I was using my own starter. Recently, I dropped the whole starter thing and switched to the SAF yeast because I didn't want to do baking on a weekly basis. Anyway, now that I want to buy more SAF instant yeast, I don't know which one was it that I bought 5 years ago! I do remember though that the package had a blue ribbon on it, which means that it was probably the SAF Gold product. But before ordering a batch of SAF Gold, I thought I'd check with fellow bakers to see if anyone out there uses it for both sweet and regular breads. I don't want to keep two kinds of yeast and if what I bought before was indeed SAF instant Gold, I'd like to stick with it. I mostly do regular bread and pizzeta's but from time to time I do Babka and Panetone's.
In short, does SAF instant Gold work for regular breads?
