                         Text on high altitude bread baking below
 
 “At high altitudes above 3,000 feet, dough rises faster.  Therefore, when 
 baking at high altitudes some experimentation is required.  Follow the 
 suggested guidelines.  Use one suggestion at a time and remember to write
 down 
 which suggestions work best for you.
 
 Guidelines:
 
 1.  Reduce the amount of yeast by 25%.  this will inhibit the bread from over 
 rising.
 
 2.  Increase salt by 25%.  The bread will rise slower and have less of a 
 tendency to sink.
 
 3.  Watch your dough as it mixes.  Flour stored at High Altitudes tends to be 
 drier.  You might add a few tablespoons of water, until the dough forms a
 nice 
 ball.”
