Default temperature of yeast

My son has already turned in his idea to test how the temperature of yeast will affect bread. Initially he wanted 5 sep. temps for the yeast but thankfully his teacher got it down to 3 temps. Our plan is to have one package of yeast at room temperature, one in the freezer and one warmed in the oven. Any suggestions about procedures to ensure that our yeast is the correct temp. (how long should we freeze and warm the yeast? and does anyone have a simple recipe to use? Please help ASAP - our time line is lmited! Thanks ! lubencon

Red face I'm not sure, but this is a suggestion

Um, when I did a experiment for yeast, I put it in the oven for about one hour. So, all of them should maybe be an hour.
Have you ever felt being tested?
asking Him what to do.
And in your heart,
He's telling you,
"Have faith my little children
and keep your souls clean and new."
For when you least expect it,
I will make my big debut
Follow me to the heavens,
and to your small world, say adieu.

Prepare for judgment day.

Default Suggestion

i don't think you should put the yeast into the freezer, maybe the refrigerator and one more thing is that, if you are testing which yeast will make the best bread, then after the result, you have to explain why though, why the yeast at that temperature could make the best bread, if thats what you mean by hoe does yeast's temp,. affect bread

good luck
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

...For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
-Edgar Allan Poe

When you test something like this, don't go for the extreme temperatures where the conclusion is obvious. I agree that the oven should be substituted with the freezer. And the oven shouldn't be 200 degrees or higher. Because when the temperatures are so extreme, the yeast dies, and the dough ends up not rising at all.

When you're in doubt how long you have to wait, why don't you just try setting out the yeast and dough one time and see how long it takes to fully rise?
