yeast won't rise - can I just add more?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi -

I have a batch of dried yeast that must have been killed off by higher temps in storage or something (it's still a year before it's

best by date). I have already got it in my wet mix.

Is there any argument against just adding a new, working batch of dried yeast to this existing mix with the "dead?" yeast in it?

I am hoping not to waste all the wet ingredients :-)

 

thanks

I'm sure it'll will fine. Me too against wasting of any food, might be because I'm a food lover. lol.gif

Have you proofed it yet. It may be good, if not just add more of new good  yeast.
