The recipe calls for bread yeast so I am going to use it for my first two batches. What is everyone using ? Active dry fleschmanns or rapid rise ? Or does it matter ?

I have heard not to use the rapid rise stuff, just use the regular Fleishmann's yeast if you can get it.

I think the other one is called active dry. Can anyone else confirm this ? And let me know for sure if that's the one I need. I am going to the store shortly to get it.

Active dry should be fine, just don't use the rapid rise... I am not sure why, but I've heard not to.

My guess is that it ferments too fast and produces of flavors... But that's only my best guess.

This is the kind that I got, though from a regular store and not amazon. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001EQ...sr=8-2&pi=SL75
