Notes

Note:
  1. Fresh yeast is used by professional and need to be frozen properly, If you are having fresh yeast stored for long in your fridge, there is possibility that it’s not active anymore.
  2. If yeast is not active, it doesn’t produce fermentation after adding to warm water.
  3. Dry yeast also need to be checked, although it is used in less amount.
  4. Longer the fermentation period better the dough, 2 hours is enough but overnight gives better results.
