I've been baking bread for more than 50 years, and I've come to the realization that the bread's going to rise (sometimes better!) with cool water. It's heat that kills the yeast, and if your water is too warm, your bread may not rise at all. I'd go with lukewarm water. Never "hot."

1 1/3 cups. It's in the comments section below the recipe.
