I don't understand how adding less yeast will cut down on the "breadiness" at all. I would also politely question the directions saying to add a third of the yeast package???
Unless this was a one gallon batch, I find that direction rather strange???
Generally speaking, pitching a large amount, or more correctly the proper amount of yeast helps a healthy fermentation which is a very good thing!
What kind of yeast did you pitch a third of a pack?
