You use 1 1/2 Tablespoons?? I've always heard that a packet of yeast was
equal to one scant Tablespoon. If you use all whole wheat flour, though,
I guess you might want to increase the yeast.
I buy my yeast in bulk, too, though not _that_ much bulk. Opening my
little glass jar of yeast is one of my favorite things about baking bread.
