      I wish I could rate this recipe higher. If made properly it's amazing. I can't rate it above a 3 now as I did have to make a major change to make the recipe work. The amount of yeast called for is basically 5 packets, or just over 11 teaspoons. While obviously a typo, the recipe does need to be fixed before someone tries it as written. I knew it needed to be adjusted so I made an educated guess based on the amount of flour & the yield of one loaf. I used 2 1/4 teaspoons (one packet) of active dry yeast. The dough was quite sticky to work with but kneading in more flour made it possible to form a loaf. I baked it on a parchment-lined cookie sheet instead of using the oil. For flavor this recipe is a five star. I wish it had risen a bit higher though. I have never made a beer bread with yeast in it before so I plan to test other such recipes now. The finished product is a small (approximately 6 inch) round loaf with a hollow sounding crust but once sliced the insides are soft & light with a slight hint of beer (less beer taste than other beer breads I make) & a wonderful aroma with the basil. I used a bottle of Jamaican Red Stripe beer. I wish I could have posted a better sliced photo but my family was gobbling it down before I knew it. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
