If you're going to use yeast, I'd only recommend fresh yeast. It makes a big difference whether you are using fresh yeast vs. dry yeast. Fresh yeast gives much more yeast flavour to the bread than dry yeast ever can.

It doesn't sound like he's going to use yeast (, more yeast bread for me!), but dry yeast provides perfectly delicious flavor. <pause> Quick Google search found this: "We would like to dispel the myth that fresh yeast produces better bread than dry yeast. In fact-if used properly-dry yeast will produce the exact same bread as fresh yeast." From San Francisco Baking Institute.

P.S. Chief, I said that You've used up your mistake quota for the year.

But, but, but... You and Andy look so much alike in print. I mean, who else gives correct info 99.999% of the time. You're like twins. How's a guy supposed to tell you and Andy apart?

Ok, I admit it. I've made my mistake for the year, and the year is still so young. Man, am I ever going to have to be careful now.

I wasn't going to say anything and just take the credit for it.
