Ooooooohhhh, make bread with the yeast cake! Does that work?

It works, but not as well as bread yeast IMO.

OK, made bread today..... Put in a little Gluten..... (half of the recommended 4tsp/loaf) That's about right, they came out larger than before, but still had that solid feel to them. I'm happy.

Wow, 4 tsp/loaf is a metric buttload!  (That's a technical baking phrase).  I use a TBSP. for about 3 lb. of flour (4 baguettes).

So what's that, like 1.6 regular buttloads? I'm not so good at metric.  :-\

Well, there's about 1.65 pounds in one of my loaves....and there's 3 tsp in a tbsp....... so the box suggests 1.25 tbsp in a loaf. Yup that's more than you are using. So, my half and your dosage seems to be about the same.

oscar, you're using 4 tsp per 1.65 lbs, so 1 tsp / .4 lbs.

Denny is using 3 tsp per 3 lbs, so 1 tsp / 1 lb.

So you're using 2.5x the amount as Denny. ;)

Isn't a metric buttload 5.33 regular buttloads?

Except that I cut the recommended dosage in half so now I'm at 1.25 X what Denny is using, which is pretty much the same........which is what I think I said, or at least was trying to say. ???

Can someone equate Metric Butt Loads to Libraries of Congress for me?

Just seeing if any reads Slashdot.   8)
