  1. What is the self life of the product?

  2. Can I replace milk to water because I have milk allergy

    1. I'm no food scientist but I think you can. Just make sure it's slightly warm water so it helps activate the yeast. Stay safe!

    1. You can use either, but if you use unsalted butter I recommend you remove don't use the 3/4 tsp of salt. Or else it might be too salty. Sorry, this is very late :P

    2. Whoops I meant remove/don't use

  4. How much I must put it to rest after shaping

    1. Maybe around 10-20 minutes. But keep a close eye on it! Don't let if rest for too long.

  5. If i don't have yeast can I use baking soda or powder and how much should I use
