    The English Muffin Bread is rising. I have 3 recipes, all by
    Fleischmann's and all slightly different. The one I used today is
    straight off the package circa (expiration date) 1981.

    I always proof my yeast, no matter what the recipe says, but that's
    the most significant variation. The other variation was that I use
    instant yeast I buy in bulk, so I don't use packages anymore. A
    package is 2.5 teaspoons of yeast, but I only used 2 tsp. If it was
    any other bread recipe, I would have used significantly less than
    that. http://oi46.tinypic.com/k9gx1c.jpg

    Thanks, I got it downloaded on my phone. It looks like my kind of loaf.

    Okay, now that I've tasted it - go with the entire amount of yeast.
    The bread itself turned out great - but you definitely want the extra
    yeasty taste that the entire amount of yeast gives... because that's
    the "english muffin" characteristic http://oi47.tinypic.com/2in8dg.jpg

    Nice picture. Mostly, I just add some pinches of yeast out of the bag.
    I'll just put an extra pinch and do an extended rise. Thanks!
