I know this has been posted before, but since it never applied to me, I 
never paid much attention.

I have always used dry active yeast in my Breadman machine since I got the 
machine about 6 years ago. Breads were always perfect. When the bulk 
package from a whole house was used up after 2+ years in the freezer, I 
found I could only buy instant yeast in bulk.

Used it as I would the active yeast and the bread was awful. Then purchased 
bread machine yeast which looked like the instant yeast I just bought. Used 
it as directed in the recipes--measure for measure. Bread was awful.

Before throwing out all this yeast, thought I'd ask
how to use in standard recipe and cycles of my Breadman machine.

Please advise.
