Default Breadmaker yeast

Go one of mom's breadmakers out (unused) and want to make bread. Scratch
recipe from manual stipulates "bread machine yeast". I have only
Fleischmann's active dry yeast (fresh). Does it really matter if it's not
bread machine yeast? Thnx.

Same thing. Use 2 ts for almost all recipes.

Naaah - use it. Frugal tip: buy it in 2 lb. bag from Costco, Sam's
etc - freeze half of it. BIG savings vs. what those little jars and
envelopes cost.

Use instant yeast. Buy it at costco in 500 gm bags, freeze it and use as
necessary. Allows all the flexibility you need; use less for a starter or a
biga, a big more for emergency pizza, etc. You don't have to waste one of
those little packages. It freezes very well. Mine has been in the freezer
for a year and works exactly as when purchased. Don't worry about "so called
bread machine yeast".

NO Costco or Sam's....try here

You probably would spend 5 dollars on six or eight single packs from
the grocery.

That's double what you pay at Costco.

Yahbut, what's the shipping on the one lb bag? I have no problem finding
jars of SAFE or Red Label breadmaker yeast in the local supermarkets.
Asked them several years ago to stock it and they still do. Guess I'm
not the only one in the town that bakes bread.

Frankly, I would rather pay the shipping charge than paying my instate
sales tax that is inching close to 10%. At least the money would be
going to a capitolist shipper than a socialist government.

derisive snort

ooh, ohh! scary socialtistic gubmint!

do you insist it be shipped UPS and not the postal service, even if UPS is
more expensive?

(i will admit it may be a mark of failure of the socialist government that
you can't spell 'capitalist.' or maybe you are just stupid.)

This is what happens when you live in a state with a regressive tax
structure, i.e., no income tax. That includes my former domicile of
Texas, where calling someone a socialist could get you shot by a
legally-carried concealed weapon. It also includes my current domicile
of Washington, where (at least in my neighborhood) calling someone a
socialist could get you invited to their next meeting and vegan potluck
(OB food).

I live in a state that has both income tax and, in my town, a 9 3/4%
sales tax but it's less on food. We also have legally-carried concealed
weapons, very few outright socialists, or at least socialists that will
admit they are socialists, lots of dead beats and scoff laws, and the
best politicians money can buy.

I always check the shipping costs against our local sales tax just to
see what the difference is. Sometimes you pay the shipping costs because
it is an item you need or just really, really, want.
