If I could give this zero stars, I would.
I was very excited to find this product. It is suppose to be the same yeast as in the “Rapid Rise” and the product for bread machines. I used the exact amount for my recipe: a typical 1/4 ounce strip envelope equals 2 1/4 teaspoons. The end result was a baked product that tasted foul. I contacted Fleishmann’s Company the next morning. I was told that they would replace the two pounds of yeast I had purchased with a (three envelope strip with a total of 3/4 ounces). When I pointed out that this did not seem reasonable, they said they would replace the two pounds of Fleishmann’s yeast with a coupon for a 4-oz glass jar, and pointed out that I had complained about another product from their company in the past. I was further told that I would not have any future defective products compensated for. (?) This is not a company that stands behind their products, and apparently they are not committed to a reasonable level of quality control.
This product is excellent
I have used this product, bought at Sam’s Club when I was a member, for many years. Works perfectly in my bread machine every time. Two pounds seemed an incredible amount when I started, but I found I could keep an unopened package in the freezer and transfer the opened package to a jar I kept in the freezer. When making bread, I simply add a couple of teaspoons of the frozen yeast from the jar directly to the bread pan. I have had the yeast keep for about four to six years (two 1 lb packages) without a problem. I’m nearing the end of my last (4th) pound and looked to Amazon for a replacement. Glad to find it on Amazon even though it’s a few dollars more expensive than Sam’s. Still a wonderful deal! Dirt cheap compared to packets and small jars.
I will always buy from this store and this brand/quantity of product. an EXCELLENT price. The product is great. I bought this threw Amazon.com.
Flei. Instant Yeast
Excellent product did the job well ,no complaints at all I use it mainly for making Pizza and Pita bread dow a very good value for the money when you compare to the small sachettes they sell at grocery stores.
Beats the heck out of store bought packages
If you own a bread maker or make your own bread buy this yeast. I have a jar from the store bought yeast I used to buy that I store my current batch in. All the rest goes in the freezer to delay the expiration date. This stuff works great – I’m making the best ciabatta bread I’ve ever seen with this stuff. It makes great pizza dough, too.
