i make lots of products with yeast (challa, bread, pizza etc). I tried redstar platinum but actually my best results are with hodgson mills even though i use exclusively white flour. does anyone else have a fave yeast?

    SAF Red Label for Breads and SAF Gold Label for products with higher amounts of sugar.
    It's widely available at restaurant supply stores and online.
    It's the yeast most bakeries use and it is kosher certified.

    Its also really cheap. Compared to those packets you buy at grocery stores.

      Second that. But wouldn't you get a broader sample on the Home Cooking Board?
