What's up with my bread?

Today's attempt at making a well loved potato bread recipe has failed again!  I actually started the sponge on Saturday, AFTER proofing the yeast this time.  It took until this afternoon (Tuesday) for the final, albeit somewhat deflated, "rise".  I've used this recipe for several years and have never had any trouble.  I love to bake fresh bread and have had occasional problems, but this is starting to concern me.  I'm in SoCal, have had nice "bread baking" weather and followed the directions to a tee.  Any one have any ideas?

I also had this problem and it was caused by the yeast. Make sure your yeast is not outdated and it is at room temp.
