linda is looking for: (1 recommendation)
where can I find vital gluten ? some have said on here that I can add this to my all purpose flour for the bread machine ? and also I am some what confused by this new bread machine rules lol My book says never combine yeast with liquid in it, but some recipes on here for bread machines say to proof the yeast in your bread machine pan first ? Ugghh lol

If you are using Dry Active yeast you should proof it. Instant Yeast doesn't need to be proofed. Instant Yeast is sometimes called 'bread machine yeast'. As for the Vital Wheat gluten, look for Bob's Redmill - rather small package and it is usually with some other 'healthy' stuff therefore some stores sell it in the organic or 'healthy' section of the store instead of the baking aisle.

It is usually about $6. a package. The link above shows you what to look for as well as some of the other packages that will be in the same section.

There are basically only 2 types of dry yeast. The regular and rapid rise kind. Yeast sold as 'bread mahine yeast' is the rapid rise kind. The order of ingredients in a bread machine only matters when using the delay cycle. Then you shouldn't use dairy products since they can spoil when sitting a room temp for too long (this is the reason bread machine recipes often call for powdered milk). If NOT using delay, they is nothing wrong with proofing the yeast and the exact order you add the ingredients makes no difference. On delay cycle, the yeast should not come in contact with the liquids so that is why most bread machines provide an order to add the ingredients. They also don't want to bother with 2 versions of each recipe, so they assume you will use the delay cycle.
