Explain the importance of temperature control in yeast doughs. How does the temperature affect the dough
To promote yeast activity in the dough, the final dough temperature must come to a specific temperature to ensure enough yeast activity, therefore enough CO2 is produced. If the dough is too cool, not enough yeast activity will be generated. Too warm and the yeast will produce too much CO2 resulting with a collapsed oven spring, or even the death of the yeast if it too hot.
