Great write up Steve. Well thought out and presented. I'm adding this to my list of things to try.

I always proof my yeast. Like you said Steve, you know right away if it is viable. I pur my dough in the oven with the light on for the rising. The bulb is a 40 watt appliance one and gives off just enough heat to help the dough rise. I don't know why, but I have never had very much luck with the rapid rise yeast. The dough just doesn't rise enough.

I can't really say. I've never weighed it. My guess would be somewhere between one and one-and-a-half pounds.
