Baking with dry yeast

I paused baking with my broodbakmachine for a while because I only had one dry yeast portion left. I already bought some loose weigth yeast, but I had no way to measure out 5.5 grams as the recipe prescribes for one bread. Yesterday I found a spoon with a size that corresponded exactly to the contents of the prepacked yeast, so now I can use this spoon to measure out the dry yeast from loose weight and start baking again - even cheaper than before.

I have joined the club of bread baking enthousiasts - I am now the lucky owner of an AFK BM3 bread baking machine. Let's see if I find it as fun as baking bread the ol' fashioned way.

(no I have not tried it out yet, but I will let you know how it turns out)
