Wow that was good! My yeast was a bit old so it didn't rise that great, but before I put it in the the dutch I mixed in some honey and it was great. A slight bit doughy but probably cause it didn't rise as much. Four people loved it though thanks Cat!

That's because you didn't add any sugar for the yeast to ferment. Wheat is starch, and the yeast cannot break that down. Unless you add sugar, it won't rise. That bread dude is either retarded or wants you to not be able to make bread so you buy it instead.

Yeah I will next time, like I said the yeast was a few months old. It was still real good bread though. How much sugar for the OP's recipe?
 Quoting: Munsoned

To make sure your yeast is good, add it to a cup of warm water from the tap...add a teaspoon or 2 of sugar to the water and put the yeast on top of the water. If the yeast is good, it will form a foam in 10 or 20 minutes. Usually for a loaf of bread a tablespoon or two.

Again, you can just add a tablespoon of baking soda, then knead in a tablespoon or 2 of lime juice and put it in the oven right away to bake. Bread will fluff up nicely.
