Have used this brand for 2 years and been perfectly satisfied with it but I find this like all yeasts are better when used as a starter - teaspoon of yeast and same of sugar mixed with a little of the water in a small beaker. When the yeast mix has got working with a good 'head' I add it to the top of the dry bread mix in the machine and set it off.
Great price, lovely small manageable packets, works great. I use it to bake most of my own and my family's bread. I used it with, strong white, rye, spelt and wholemeal flour in 1kg batches. Never a problem, so very recommended.
Loaf Just out of my Breadmaker last night. I have been previously a Professional Baker and I feel that before You start to bake? You need to use Good High Quality ingredients. I have used other brands of yeast which may have been cheaper or dearer than Doves. I Verymuch think that making bread is Verymuch a Science. It's the same for the amateur as much as it is for me as a trained Baker. I think to start of with your ingredients ie your flour etc. Must be of good Quality. I don't use a dough improver and I don't use vitamin C. No preservatives only fine sea salt. It's all natural ingredients. I used Doves Strong Bread flour for my Cinnamon and Sultana loaf pictured. I really was very impressed with the quality of this yeast as you can see I have got a good well Risen loaf that even Paul Hollywood would be proud of! The yeast is the most important ingredient in making bread. I just used 2 tsp of yeast in this 1 kg loaf. I would definitely recommend this product to other bakers and also recommend Doves Flour also. I just want to help fellow bakers amateurs and professionals alike. I have a little book which is very valuable to me it is a great little book By Author Karen Saunders, Tips For Your Breadmaker . You can purchase here on Amazon for a few pounds but it's the best thing since sliced bread. It is a little book but very informative in Bread making. A good Quality products like this You get a good Quality loaf. Cheap ingredients you don't get a good Quality rise. I am very pleased with the quality of this yeast and how my loaf turned out. Would recommend this brand of yeast Doves and I would recommend this Seller and I am very pleased that I can purchase it from Amazon UK marketplace and it delivered to my door. Thanks to Amazon for selling yet another high quality product. Delivery was Excellent Too! Happy Baking Folks.
