Oh, OK. But do both rises or just one?

groups.yahoo.com/group/bread-machine.files has a 201 manual available. I have found most manuals available on line with a little digging.

Just got there this way. groups.yahoo.com/group/bread-machine/files/
Sorry, I can't figure out how to send this link. This is a subscription but free bread machine yahoo group. There are lots of recipes manuals, and what not on it.
Hope I got it right this time.

I think I found simpler way to get to the site. It is a yahoo group. I think you can find it by going to groups from the yahoo toolbar and searching for bread machine groups. If neither of these work, let me know, and we'll figure something out. There appear to be several manuals and recipes and tips on the site.
I am sort of computer dumb, but am a digger for information.

Congratulations, and welcome to the world of bread baking! A small warning: it can be an addictive hobby - but at least it's one that tastes good and makes the house smell great!

A couple tips on yeast in case you don't know:
  • For the bread machine, make sure you get yeast that's labeled either "bread machine" or "instant". The two are the same thing, just labeled differently. RapidRise might also be the same, but I'm not sure.
  • The larger the package you buy the better the deal. Yes, this is pretty much the same deal as with most things you buy, but it's much more extreme in the case of yeast. For example:
  1. In my local Safeway, those little 3-packs cost $2.99. They weigh in at .75 oz for the three.
  2. At the same Safeway, a 4 oz jar costs $8.99.
  3. But in a 1 lb pack at my local restaurant supply store, yeast costs me 2.79 for the whole pound. I've heard of people getting 2 lb packs for even less, but my restaurant supply only has the 1 lb packs and my local Costco doesn't have instant yeast, which I prefer.

Thanks!
Yes you can. I'd say in cases like these where you're going to be pulling the dough out and shaping it yourself, set the machine to mix plus one rise. The final rise should be done after shaping, and two rises is what you want in most cases.

At my local COSTCO, Red Star is $3.79/2 pounds. I have used it for a few years, it is not instant, or bread, but I have never had a problem with it.
