My strong-whtie bread from our Panasonic breadmaking machine has not risen. Why? Three thoughts for your comments, please:
- Is the Allinson's Easy Bake Yeast for Bread Makers and Hand Baking too old? The tin says use within four months of opening, but we have had it a lot longer than that. Does yeast lose its effectiveness?
- If the yeast does not lose its power to raise bread, should I continue to use it but add a little gluten, as we do anyway when we make buckwheat bread?
- If yeast has to be used quickly (say, really within four months) is there a better way of buying it than Allinson's tins, which are fairly large (100 g)?
