Silly question about halving a bread recipe

synecdoche | Nov 16, 2008 03:52 PM

I'm going to try the base recipe for the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book. I don't have the book (it is on my Christmas list) and am using the recipe provided in a newspaper article. However, I want to halve the recipe. Am I right in assuming that I can halve the amount of yeast called for? I'm new to baking bread, and this whole rising thing is still a bit magical to me.
