    Excellent overview of the "history" of yeast use. Have a better understanding of the different kinds of yeast and their use. Thank you

    Great information. The knowledgeable presenter made me aware of the differences in yeasts that I buy in the store -- no longer will I just say, "Hey, that's yeast," and pick it up and toddle off to bake a failure. Finding out about the origins of keeping yeast vital was interesting, too, and linked me to the past. That was fun. :) She also answered a specific question I had: does the liquid I use to proof the yeast get taken from the recipe? It's an interesting four-minutes to get the answer.
