If the water is cooler, the yeast will not activate. Offhand, I can't imagine that anything bad would happen if instant yeast were rehydrated first. I'd like to finish this tonight, but the dough didn't really rise for reasons that are now obvious to me. You can also try using a cast iron skillet in place of the pizza stone; some people have better luck with that. You can make your own starter using commercial yeast, by using potato water from boiled potatoes to attract and feed wild yeasts present in the air around us, or by using the yeast found on the skins of organic grapes or organic raisins.
Beer foam bubbles is the green light to proceed. What about active dry or nutritional yeast? Bread made with fresh yeast rose equally well as same kind of bread made with active dry yeast. Fresh yeast is most often used by because of its quality, vulnerability and short shelf life. Both fresh and ordinary dried yeast need to be activated before adding them to your other ingredients. In the end, it ends up in large storage tanks and from there the fresh yeast then gets filtered, pressed, and packed very tightly into the small squares you can buy in the super market.

If you bake bread all the time, your kitchen is full of wild yeast, and any dough you make there will rise vigorously.
Can I use active dry and instant yeasts interchangeably? I've heard that when you're doubling a recipe, you shouldn't double the yeast, too. Today, the difference is minimal, and the two can be used interchangeablywith slightly different results. I should try skipping the rehydration step too, Rosalie. Both of which will make your bread flatter than a flitter. Simply cut one or two packets from the strip to use as your recipe states.
