Yeast flavor is overbaring...
« on: May 24, 2010, 01:09:16 PM »
I've been making pies with active dry yeast, and no matter how little I use or how little or how long I leave the dough for, the yeasty flavor in the base damages the taste of the otherwise very good pies. I use 1lb 5oz of flour and add a level teaspoon of sugar and yeast, the texture is perfect but the taste is still too yeasty, when I use less it's still noticeable. Any idea where it's going wrong?

ive been using ady for at least a month now, never had a real yeast taste to it.
maybe your tasting something else
what kind of flour ?
what is your fermentation process ?

1 teaspoon for 21 OZ flour is about 0.60% so it sounds like it is going to depend on your fermentation process. This is definitely not out of line for a reasonable amount of ADY i don't think.

i would think the sugar would help the yeast.
