Red Star Active Dry Yeast Available at Janie’s Mill

Welcome to Janie’s Mill where we are committed to offering our customers a wide selection of the highest-quality organic stone-ground flours and grain. Most of our grains are grown just down the road on Janie’s Farm, and all of our products are milled right here at Janie’s Mill in Ashkum, IL. We take pride in offering only the finest quality products, including our Red StarActive Dry Bakers Yeast, which works well with our organic flours. 

Red Star active dry yeast provides a moderate and steady leavening rate that allows for the development of rich and complex flavors in all types of yeast doughnuts, whether they are low-sugar or highly sweetened and enriched. This yeast is also perfect for those who want to take their baking to the next level and create delicious, artisan-style bread recipes. 

How to Use Active Dry Yeast

To use our active dry yeast, start by dissolving it in (100-110℉) warm water, with a small amount of sugar or honey to activate the yeast. Allow the mixture to sit for about five minutes until it becomes frothy and bubbly. Then, add the yeast mixture to your dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, following the directions in the recipe you are using, gently stretch and fold the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic, then let it rise until it doubles in size.

Because Janie's Mill organic stoneground flours have small particles of bran that can break the air bubbles created by yeast, we recommend that you do not knead your dough, but rather use the gentle "stretch and fold" technique during your bulk fermentation.

One of the great benefits of our active dry yeast is that it has a somewhat slower rising time than instant yeast, making it ideal for slow fermentation and refrigerated doughs. This provides you with the opportunity to create more complex and nuanced flavors in your bread due to the slower action, which allows the yeast to have more time to interact with the other ingredients.

At Janie’s Mill, we are committed to offering only the highest quality products, and our yeast is no exception. While it is not labeled as organic yeast, this yeast is produced from only the purest, natural ingredients.
