Yeah, I hadn't heard of bread flour. Never made my own bread before. Always wanted a bread maker/machine so I could make my own.

I particularly want to make a good banana nut bread. Or cinnamon raisin bread would be nice.
You don’t need a bread machine to make bread.

I think the wheat flour from that link is because they are trying to be healthy. The video just calls for bread flour and it works fine. I’m sure you could use AP in a pinch. With the pandemic, I have all kinds of flour around here.
I have bread flour but it's a little old.

Lol, yeah true. I just don't know how to make bread. :hihi:
You should just do it. Get some yeast, look it up on the internet. Flour, water, yeast, salt. A lot of it is feel that you just have to learn by doing. The rest is basic science. It’s cheap, it’s fun, and even your failures taste good.

How important is fresh yeast? We have some refrigerated but it's old as well.
That matters a lot more. Dead yeast can’t do it’s job. If it’s been refrigerated though, it might be ok. If you have enough to spare,mix up some (warmish) sugar water and put a teaspoon of yeast in it. It should get foamy after 15 min or so.

I'll do the test but it's old, 2016.
