We use a 140 quart hobart....I'm telling ya, 36% dough is hard on a mixer, and even tougher on a sheeter!

Wow.

I'm starting to think it might be about time for a road trip.

The yeast appears to be added separately. In another Shakey's thread in one of Jet Deck's photos I determined the yeast on the bench in the background was indeed Fleischmann's IDY. I forget where that thread went. Too many beers ago.

I just saw that the other day, so I know exactly what you're talking about. Don't ask me where I saw it, though.

Here is the start of DNA Dan's posts about the type of yeast used:
http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,21474.msg225388.html#msg225388

However, the color of the package is gold, not red. From this Fleishmann commercial Baker's Dry Yeast page:
http://www.abmna.com/products/yeast
it could be product code 2169, Gold Instant Yeast.

However, I have another color photo on my hard drive that I don't want to upload because I can't remember where I got it from (I think that after 8 years we are losing track of all the information we collected) and don't want any copyright infringement complaints. That photo clearly showed Dan's red bags of Fleishmann yeast that is probably product code 2139.

The bag I am talking about is in the corner of the room with the red stripe on it. That's Fleishmann's IDY.

There's actually another bag sitting sideways next to it around a bag of Monarch Flour. To me it's a match 100%

That box you are referring to I actually suspected was some sort of foil or plastic wrap because of where it's sitting on the bench. (Easier to tear off) You can see the side reads "plastic film".

Right you are, Dan. The problem was with my computer monitor. In any event, that other picture shows a number of the red vacuum packs still in a Fleishmann's cardboard shipping carton.

We had a Shakey's in Tulsa in the 60's and 70's, and it was wonderful. I ran across this pic on the web.

NICE!  ;D

I came across this video someone made a while back. Looks like they were franchise owners or knew the owners.


For a nostalgic look at the actual product from the 70s, this one has some good frames in it.
