    Another yeast question

    Sorry just started baking breads, I ordered active dry yeast from King Arthur and they sent instant yeast instead. Can these two be interchanged and if so do I use the same amount and mix it and wait for the bubbles? It seems like it would be a pain to package up a one pound bag, send it back and have it resent. TIA and I apologize if this has been asked before.

    They are interchangeable for most things, but there are a few differences. Instant yeast does not need to be dissolved in water first. It is great for bread machines.

    Regular yeast is better if you are going to refrigerate your dough before baking, or if you are doing multiple rises to develop the flavor.

    I prefer regular yeast. It does everything instant yeast does plus more. I really don't think instant yeast is any faster. If you proof regular yeast for 10-15 minutes in water with a spoonful of sugar, it jumpstarts it to the point of being just as fast, IMO. I get superior flavor and texture with regular yeast.

    I like regular better that is what I use in my easter bread but they sent the wrong one I guess I will send it back because it is a pound package. So if your doing multiple rises the instant is not good? Thanks for getting back to me so quick I'll be sending hubby to the store!
