  6. Ok, I’m new to the game of bread (ing), but there are a few things that I’d like to know.
    In the past, my bread making attempts have been, …. ummm, not so successful. I wind up with something that smells like bread, but, at best, it sits on your stomach like a lump of clay, at the worst well, you don’t want to know, really.
    What would happen if I don’t punch it down after it has risen the 1st time around? Would this make it rise and be more fluffily textured?
    And here’s one more Q. for you.
    Who has a recipe for making the yeast that is used for making the bread? I mean, somebody has to make the yeast that is sold in the stores, so there has to be a process involved, right?
    I don’t know why, but every time I go to buy it at the store, the shelf life for this product seems short, at one month from the time I buy it. Is this the normal lifespan for yeast? Would someone email me the recipe to make my own yeast?
    Thanks, I just want to get it right.
