Video Post: Yeasty Bidness
Update: While this video uploaded, I decided to throw caution to the wind and use the original yeast. Only time (and the next blogpost) will tell whether that was a good decision
**Also, for those of you who are interested in such things, you too can ask Kate all about yeast at her blog, The Domestic Empress.
***Update to the Update (3:45pm): Evan asked the question that Kate didn't think to and now I've figured out just what went wrong. Turns out I was waiting for Rapid Rise yeast to do something that it does not (and should not) do. Had I tossed Active Dry yeast into the warm water, I would have gotten all the recognizable bells and whistles. So will my dough rise? Will my bagels turn out? Still to be determined... stay tuned!
