Question about Breadman TR555LC Bread Maker
I have the breadman tr555lc, I prepare it exactly how the book says to and it doesnt rise and its hard and dense
Back in the day when my Mom was baking bread on a regular basis, she'd occaisonally get a bad batch of yeast, and the bread would be the weight and consistency of fruitcake, but with somewhat less flavor. (We ate it anyway).
The first thing you need to do is check the quality and currency of your yeast. If the yeast is too old, or just a bad batch, your bread won't rise.
To test the yeast, mix a sample in warm water (~105 deg. F) and add a little sugar. If the yeast is good, it should start forming bubbles. No bubbles, time to get new(er) yeast.
If your yeast checks-out, then you need to see if something in the machine's process is overheating the yeast too soon - - the yeast's fermentation process creates the carbon dioxide (CO2) bubbles that causes the bread to rise (sort of like inflating a balloon, if you like). If something is killing the yeast (e.g. too much heat too early in the process), it won't react and create the bubbles.
Good luck; please write back and let me know what you find out.
