Yeast to Flour Ratio

Yeast to Flour Ratio

I have read all your info on yeast, but am still confused!! – I have just bought individual 11g sachets of Instant Dry Yeast (manufacturer Dagan) – how do I use it in my challas????- I look forward to your reply – many thanks,

An 11 gram packet is about 2 teaspoons plus a bit more of yeast. This is not so exact so, since I never buy such small packets, I would suggest measuring it with a teaspoon. See how much it comes out to be. If you only want to do a small amount of challah, then cut down the recipe I gave you to half and this way you will only need one and a half of such packets for about 8-9 cups of flour ratio.

Happy challah baking!
