I just used active dry yeast . The conversion is about 5 tsp , or 2 packages . Close enough , doesn't have to be exact .
The Bread flour should be in the baking isle at the store . I use King Aurther . Blue and white bag .
Make sure you use brown sugar , and add the salt after the dough starts to form , but is still loose . Direct contact to the yeast can effect the rise .
It's easy really .

OK, that seems simple enough. I'll post it up if it's acceptable. Thanks.
 
A little garlic along with some melted butter and I'd be in heaven with that bread Rich.

Point for sure

The bread looks KILLER!!!
Thanks . I appreciate that . I have to say it surprised me how good the first one was . Classic Italian bakery .
We have some great Italian bakery's and Markets in and around St. Louis .
 
How did I miss this! Fantastic Loaves. I just love all fresh bread
Sandy , Me too . I needed some redemption after loaf No. 4 was not as good .
So I did No. 5 yesterday . Used 2 TBLS . dry active yeast , and cut down the cook time to about 20:00 minutes at 4:25 . Let it sit over night , sliced this morning . It's really good . Thanks for the comment . Appreciate it .

This last one may be the nicest one yet. I made the mistake of showing these pictures to the Mrs., so if the first one we do isn't close, I'm in trouble. LOL.
 
Oh yes, definitely looks that way. We were both drooling over that picture before.
 
That looks fantastic! Still drooling from the Bread, now this? Post up some sliced and plated when you get a chance.
