I don't know why that recipe has remained on the Krib. Everyone
who uses it has the same problem. It uses too much yeast. Try 1/4
teaspoon, which will allow the yeast population to build up more
slowly over a longer time period, rather than exploding, using up all
the sugar, and dying back quickly.
