Is it cheating to add yeast to sourdough?

Sourdough bread baking is a slow process, and even a small amount of yeast can speed it up significantly. And despite this, the loaf still retained some of the tang and chew of straight sourdough. To help proofing go faster with your own sourdough bread, try adding ⅛ teaspoon of instant yeast per cup of flour.
