Proofing Dry Yeast

 Proofing Dry Yeast

Into a sanitized glass, add 3-4 ounces of 100° water.
Slowly pour the contents of the dry yeast pack into the glass, but DO NOT STIR IT YET.
Cover the glass with sanitized tinfoil to prevent airborne contamination.
After 5 minutes, then stir the mixture to eliminate clumping.
Allow the yeast to proof for 20-25 minutes (not to exceed 30 minutes). 

Points to remember:

Delay proofing the yeast until your batch is ready to be pitched with yeast.

Proofing in excess of 30 minutes could cause the yeast to be sluggish.

Proofing at 105°or above could kill or damage the yeast.

Use your thermometer to determine the proofing temperature.
