SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast is cake yeast in a semi-dormant state. The drying process in its manufacture reduces moisture content, giving it a longer shelf life than cake yeast while retaining optimum activity. When activated, it provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast dough- low sugar to highly sweetened breads. SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast is a fast-acting yeast that can shorten the rise times for traditional baking. SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast designed for direct mixing with other dry ingredients. There is no rehydration required. Instant Yeast is not recommended for use in refrigerated or frozen dough baking methods.

SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast is available in strips of three 1/4 -ounce (7g) packets. Three 1/4 -ounce (7g) packets are equal in activity to one 2-ounce cake of yeast. One 1/4 -ounce (7g) packet contains approximately 2-1/4 teaspoons; the measurement will not be exact as yeast is packaged according to weight rather than volume. One packet, or 2 1/4 tsp of yeast, is sufficient to raise 4 cups, approximately 1pound, of flour.

For traditional baking, SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast may be hydrated in 110°-115°F liquids or mixed with other dry ingredients if liquids are warmed to 120° to 130°F.

To use SAF® Gourmet Perfect Rise Yeast in a bread machine, use 1/2 teaspoon of yeast for each cup of flour and have liquids at 80°F liquids. For one-hour bread machine cycles, yeast amounts must be doubled or tripled; suggested liquid temperatures vary with machines.
