Thanks for your help. We just bought the yeast , so that problem is eliminated. We tried lukewarm water, but I don't know what 105 degree temperature actually is. Is it warm or on the warm-to-hot side ? The instructions said to put a pinch of sugar in with the yeast so thats what we did. I would say that our kitchen was around 69 degrees or so. We kept it over the dishwasher. and someone ran the dishwasher, maybe it got warm over the dishwasher. But the pot the dough was in to rise was still cool. My niece said to put the dough in a large metal pot, so thats what we did. But my Mom used to always keep the dough to rise in a ceramic bowl. could that be it ? the Ssteel pot ? Its always so hard to get it just right ! thanks Dianne
