Any reason to give up commercial yeast? Oh yes
In case anyone is searching the freshloaf forum or hanging out, but too scared to try to begin a starter, or too disillusioned after a brief try, here’s my intimate look about why to give up commercial yeast. Health, yes, but other reasons as well. Confidence is a big one.
Next up will be breads #72 and #73. #72 is a whole wheat no-knead bread, baked this morning. #73 will be another beer bread, though it is rising slowly and I’m at the point of wondering if this will happen. My mantra is “be patient.” Planning after Passover to get back to whole grains more, after trying homemade injera and matzoh.
