Please help before I go too far!  I am wanting to make up some french bread today.  I made a mistake in the directions.


They said mix yeast with sugar and warm (110) water, which I did.  But then I also added the salt from the recipe which was not supposed to go in until I add the flour.  Before I waste 5 cups of flour, I need to know.....Did I just Kill my Yeast with the salt?  Or should I proceed?  The liquid mixture is all bubbly and smells of yest.


Any help?

So Sorry!  I posted this in the wrong Forum.  It should be under "How Do I?"

AIf it's bubbly it will still work. The amount of salt in the recipe will just slow the action of the yeast, it won't kill it.
