Thank you for sharing this! I feel so much better 😊 - so the night before I was to bake bagels with some girls at a club, I made some dough ahead and wondered why it wasn’t coming together. I realized I’d used cold water! To wake up the yeast, I put it in a warm oven for a few minutes then took it out and kneaded it on top of the warm oven “vent” until it came together. Phew! Of course after the girls and I made some fresh dough the next day and already shaped them into bagels to bring to our fridges at home, we realized none of us had taken out the yeast from the fridge to mix in!! And this was after I’d told them all about yeast and we’d laighed about my cold water near-disaster the night before..: oh well! We decided it would be a good experiment for them, seeing what happens to a bagel baked without yeast. 😊
