Yeast date defaults and date picker


Feb 28, 2012
Reaction score
When I add yeast to a recipe, the package date defaults to around 3/6/2011, so the yeast viability is always low.  Is there a reason the package date defaults to something over a year ago?

Also, when I use the calendar/date picker to choose a new date, it does not work at all.  Nothing is selectable.  I can't click on a date to pick it, and I can't use the arrows to pick a new month/year.  Long story short, I have to manually enter the date whenever I add new yeast.
