Bread Not Rising
I used a recipe I found on the internet for buttermilk bread, because my kids love how fluffy it is. The recipe had many positive reviews, so it must work for some people. However, when I went to make it, it did not rise hardly at all. The bread machine yeast I bought says to refrigerate it after opening, so I did, and I didn't bring the yeast up to room temperature before using it, but all the other ingredients were room temperature or a little higher. Can anybody think of a reason it might not have risen? Am I supposed to bring the yeast up to room temperature before adding it?
