  • The Only Yeast I Use
    By on - Verified Buyer
    SAF yeast is the only brand I use for my whole wheat bread and pizza. I make sure I buy in bulk so I don't run out because store brands just don't 'measure up'.

  • Excellent yeast
    By on - Verified Buyer
    We were introduced to SAF yeast when we first started baking our own bread. We love it! We pull it out of the fridge and use it for whatever yeast is needed in - no need to let it warm up. Pleasant Hill Grain provides excellent service with super quick delivery and great prices! We enjoy doing business with PHG and will be ordering from them again!

  • Best I've ever used!!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I was introduced to this yeast about 16 years ago - my friend told me I could store in freezer to keep fresh and I've used it ever since, never a failure as I was having with other yeasts.

  • Good yeast = good bread
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This SAF yeast from Pleasant Hill Grain is good quality. I buy several packages at a time and store it in my freezer. It produces good rising and good tasting bread. Also I have purchased numerous food and mechanical items from Pleasant Hill Grain. Their products are always good quality and they are truly pleasant people to work with.

  • Highly Favored
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I bake whole grain bread about once a week. More yeast is usually required for whole grain bread, because the flour is heavier, requiring more strength to raIse the bread. SAF instant yeast is dried at lower temperatures, so the proportion of live cells is much greater, allowing me to use up to 25% less than active dry yeast. This contributes to smaller individual granules which absorb liquid more quickly and can be added directly to the dry ingredients and mixed immediately. SAF, made by Red Star saves me time & money, but most of all it helps me bake great healthy bread!
