Excellent for Home Ground Flour
This yeast works great for bread using 100% home ground flours. Even though it does have a conditioner built in, I still add some dough enhancer and gluten when using any flour except red winter wheat flour. Rising time with home ground flours takes longer no matter how you slice it. It will work in a bread maker using 100% home ground flour if you pause your cycle and give it some extra rise time before the bake cycle kicks in (20-45 min) even if using a whole wheat cycle. If you don't, you will have a whole wheat brick. I modify all bread machine recipes by adding an extra teaspoon or more of yeast, two extra tablespoons of water and two tablespoons less flour than called for with all bread machine recipes. Home ground flours have different moisture content than store bought and that seems to work well across the board. I have had excellent results using this yeast with and without a bread machine and am pretty pleased with it.
