Forgot my yeast - now what
Using the FWSY white bread with poolish recipe.
I done three folds and the after about 2.5 hours of bulk fermentation I realized I did not add the 3 grams of yeast in the final mix?
what now? Go with it? Bulk longer?
some rise but not double for sure.
But it'll take a lot longer. If you have the time then wait. If not then you can add the yeast at any stage.
I decided to add yeast and let it go a little longer.
This will be interesting.
I would dissolve the yeast in a little warm water and then incorporate it into the dough with stretch and folds.
I did only let it cool for about an 90 minutes before slicing and eating with dinner. It was delicious. Disaster averted. I love that my mistakes are still delicious.
