How to Reactivate Allinson's Dried Active Yeast

Allinson's Dried Active Yeast is a more traditional yeast and is only suitable for hand baking bread - but before you use Allinson's Dried Active Yeast it needs to be reactivated. We show you how to do this before you bake your very own delicious homemade bread. 

Note: 500g of bread flour will require 15g of activated dried active yeast. 

Ingredients:

  • 1tsp Sugar
  • 150ml Warm Water (1 Part Boiling to 2 Parts Cold)
  • 15g Allinson's Dried Active Yeast

 

How to Active your Yeast:

  • Dissolve the sugar in the warm water
  • Sprinkles in the dried active yeast and whisk thoroughly
  • Leave the mixture in a warm place until the surface is covered in froth - this usually takes around 15 minutes. 
  • Whisk again thoroughly and use immediately - this liquid mixture should not be used in addition to the amount of liquid in the recipe but included in the total amount.
