I use instant yeast for this recipe, you can use active dry and follow the same directions. If you are using fresh yeast, you may have to do some trial and error as I haven't tested that with this recipe. Most people recommend a 2:1 ratio.
If you halve the recipe, you can mix and raise it in a bread machine.
