I could slap myself now..... do you know how long I have been buying yeast in those little jars ? .... forever.
They are almost $5 a bottle here. They are also only 113 grams. Considering 1 pound = 454 grams, you can see how much that bottle is.... yup it's about as expensive as gold !
Anyway a woman on another forum who lives in Canada got wind of those little bottles I was buying and actually got her husband to go to a local bakery and buy me a FULL POUND of yeast !
Talk about an amazing woman ! .... I'm really excited, and the yeast should be here anytime this week as she sent
it out I believe on Friday.
I should actually slap myself, as when I was in school we bought huge cans of this stuff, and I just never thought to seek out a source on my own to get it. In any event, thanks for pointing that out to me also, if she hadn't just told me this, I would thank you very much and having you over for beers this weekend
Thanks for info on the type of yeast. The yeast she is sending is the stuff you use, I don't need to hydrate it in anything before using it, so it's going to be fun to try it out.
thanks again for jumping in on this again for me Peter. I appreciate that.
Thanks for that link you provided. Oh and guess what, - the best part ? .... the lady told me that she paid
about $5 for a pound of that yeast... that's just amazing and great news for me !
P.S. - the bread I did is done, and has been devoured my myself and the kids.
