Default No yeast and the LHBS is closed, bread yeast?

I went and started a batch of blackberry apple cider this morning with the intention of hitting up the local LHBS only to remember they are not open Mondays. I treated the cider with 5 camden tablets but crushing them up and adding them to the berries when I pasteurized them. The problem is I wont have time to hit up the LHBS anytime soon, I have bread machine yeast, I normally use US-05, any hints/tips warnings about using the bread yeast?

I talked to a soldier who was stationed overseas and he used bread yeast for meads and melomels. Once he was able to get ahold of brewers yeast his product increased immensely. I haven't used it but is there any way you can get someone to swing by the lhbs to get some us05?

I think Basic Brewing did a segment on this once, with beer, IIRC. They seemed to indicate it turned out well. Don't remember the details.

I don't know, the place is unfortunately on the complete opposite end of town and it would take too long to go on my lunch even tomorrow. I might see if I can butter up my girlfriend into running down there tomorrow since she gets off earlier and she is a big fan of my cider

You got to pay to play! That is the cost for her to drink your cider.

Well it ended up that I had to use the bread yeast, I put a teaspoon of it last night so hopefully it has taken off this morning.

I would also be interested to hear how it turns out. My first brewing experiment involved bread yeast (I think I used the fresh stuff, not instant) and I just don't think it attenuated very well - it gave up the ghost quite quickly there was very little alcohol content and too much sugar left behind. You might have better luck.
