Is yeast supposed to smell bad?

What you are smelling is yeast fermentation—the conversion of sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. When dough overferments, it gives off a stale beer smell. Some of this alcohol will bake off, but some of it may remain in the finished bread. Try making the dough with colder water or reduce the yeast by about 10%.

You can use expired yeast provided that some of it is still active. Yeast that's past it's prime will take longer to grow and raise the dough, so only use it with breads that are made without eggs are a lot of sugar (those bread recipes need a pretty powerful proof that weak yeast can't provide).

Is bread that smells yeasty bad?

Your bread may taste yeasty, if the baker used too much of the stuff, but the yeast itself will have no negative effects. It depends how much yeast you mean by too much. The 'smell' comes from the yeast consuming the sugars and starches in the dough and producing low grade alcohol and carbon dioxide.

Why does my dough smell like yeast?

A: What you are smelling is yeast fermentation—the conversion of sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. When dough overferments, it gives off a stale beer smell. Some of this alcohol will bake off, but some of it may remain in the finished bread.

Can I cook with dead yeast?

If your yeast is completely dead it cannot work. Whatever you're baking won't rise. If it's not completely dead then it may work partially and, if so, leaving the yeast to work longer could help a little. Generally I find it a waste of time trying to cook with out of date yeast, the risk of disappointment is high.
