King Arthur flour and yeast question
« on: October 12, 2009, 09:21:59 AM »
In my previous attempt I used KA all purpose flour and Fleishman's Bread Machine yeast (in the jar).  Should I be using the bread flour instead?  What about the yeast?  Can I make good NY dough with the bread machine yeast?

I am looking to make a 17" NY style pie.

Thanks,
T

I think the bread flour will be a better choice, not to say that AP won't be OK, but it has more protein so it will be a bit tougher and chewier.  The bread machine yeast is great, and is what we all refer to as "IDY" (instant dry yeast).
