Try it with a small batch.
I also keep mine in the refrigerator and over a year. And truly haven’t had any problem, but it might be beneficial to be cautious by making a two-loaf batch and ensuring potency!
Just my thought.November 18, 2022 at 6:51 pm #14211Deborah BergParticipant
I think I’m going to try the yeast formula to save some time and get myself through the holidays. My question is, does the yeast we get from Community loaves have an expiration date? I keep it in the freezer but I’ve had it more than a year ( and used it maybe twice). Anyway, do I need to buy more or can I use what I have?
Thanks, DeborahNovember 11, 2022 at 12:13 pm #13777Gabrielle HerringParticipant
I’m sorry I should remember this but no, is the dinner roll break down exactly like the bread? In other words the exact same steps and baking temp and time?June 16, 2022 at 8:21 pm #11490Katherine KehrliKeymaster
I’m so sorry to hear about the flour mishap. Thankfully this is an uncommon event. It would be my pleasure to help you out in a pinch. If you are close to Kirkland, you are invited to swing by and pick up a bag from the Mothership.
Please email me – email@example.com and we’ll make some lemonade.

I try hard not to whine or complain. I know we are All volunteers. Bit I just lost a whole 5 lb. Bag of Trailblazer. ☹️ I’m just frustrated the bag wasn’t sealed and I didn’t notice and ended up with flour all over my kitchen. Heavy sigh 😌 I just ordered more.April 11, 2022 at 4:10 pm #10247Gabrielle HerringParticipant

Here is a link to the document from last year!
Let me know if this doesn’t work!April 11, 2022 at 10:14 am #10210Gabrielle HerringParticipant
Hi there! Katherine can you please point me in the direction of the Hot Crossed Buns-from last year? I’d like to make them this year for the family. Thank you

Two different yeast amounts. The preferment gets a little yeast and then the larger quantity of yeast goes into the mix the next day. Look back on the first page with the ingredients you’ll see that instant yeast is called out twice. Two different sections. One for the preferment, the other for the rest of the mix.
Do you see it?

In step 1 (preferment) under instructions, first bullet it says to add the yeast. In step 4 (mix by kitchen aid) under instructions, third bullet it also says to add yeast. Which is preferable ?February 16, 2022 at 7:05 am #9186Gabrielle HerringParticipant
Thank you so much! It’s what I was thinking just couldn’t pull it together.🙄February 15, 2022 at 8:14 pm #9183Katherine KehrliKeymaster
Gabrielle – there is a pound of flour in every loaf. That is the best way to think about it. Although we use 50/50 so a 5 lb bag of Whole Grain + a 5 lb bag of High Extraction flour should get you 10 loaves.
Hope that helps.

I should know this but my brain has been over loaded of late with husbands medical stuff. Approximately how many loaves does a 5 lb bag of flour make? 8-10?February 5, 2022 at 1:48 pm #8856Gabrielle HerringParticipant
Thank you very much! Katherine.February 5, 2022 at 12:59 pm #8853Katherine KehrliKeymaster
The bread hands of the label point towards the top or the twist tie end. There is a packaging video you can watch it here:
Not long from now, we won’t have any labels to worry about.
