Doves Farm Quick Yeast 125g 5 "Best yeast available" Robbie 17 February 2019 I've been using this yeast for a year or so (finishing 3rd packet). I don't have a bread machine so I make my bread by hand and I find this yeast absolutely reliable and very easy to use. You don't need to proof it before adding to the other ingredients. Just measure your yeast right into the flour and go ahead and make your dough. I always used to proof active dry yeast just to make sure it was alive. I never do that with Doves Farm and I've never had anything but great results. I wouldn't use anything else. Oh, and the packet just fits into the 180 ml Lock and Lock. Perfect.
