Yeast, Salt and Malt


Yeast, a lowly single-celled fungus that lives invisibly all around us has had a huge impact on Western civilization. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Egyptians depended on yeast for their bread and beer. In ancient Rome and medieval Europe, where 80% of a peasant's daily food intake consisted of bread, yeast was literally the foundation on which society was built.

Today, almost all of the yeast used by bakers and brewers is commercially produced and comes in three forms: fresh compressed yeast, which requires refrigeration; active dry yeast, the earliest form of nonrefrigerated yeast; and instant, which is by far the most user-friendly. NYB is pleased to offer all three.

Instant yeast offers all the advantages of fresh compressed yeast without its perishability. Unlike active dry yeast, instant yeast can be added directly to dry ingredients without the need to pre-hydrate. Comes in a 1 lb./454 g. vacuum-sealed bag, and will keep refriger ted for up to 3 years.

For bakers who prefer active dry yeast. Use 50% of fresh yeast and 150% of instant yeast percentages.

Before adding active dry yeast to your dough,...

After months of searching, we finally found a source for red rye malt, an essential ingredient in Russian and Baltic rye breads. This malt, from one of England's leading malt houses, Thomas A. Fawcett & Sons, is roasted to perfection, rich with musky sweetness and unspoiled by the bitterness of over-roasting. Pulverize these whole rye...
