Jenka Guevara wanted to know
how to proof yeast?
Fill a liquid measuring cup to the 1/2 C. level
with warm water (110-115x). Dissolve 1 tsp.
granulated sugar in the water and then
sprinkle 2-1/4 tsp. yeast slowly over the
surface. In 3-4 minutes, it will have absorbed
enough liquid to activate and start rising to
the surface. If at the end of 10 minutes, the
yeast has multiplied to the 1-cup mark and
has a rounded crown, it is very active. . The
yeast mixture may then be used in your
bread machine, if baking immediately,
(Remember to adjust the recipe for the
1/2 cup of water used in the test.) The same
test may also be done using 1-1/2 tsp. yeast,
1 tsp. of sugar and 1/4 Cup water. If at the
end of 10 minutes, the yeast has multiplied
to the 1/2 Cup mark, it is very active.
