50 grams of live yeast. Meaning not the dried kind. You should be able to find live yeast in the refrigerator section of WF or whichever gourmet/upscale store is nearby. It comes in a brick and must be dissolved in liquid before use

In many places it is very hard to find live yeast in mainstream sources, Here's a table to convert to the more commonly available active dry or instant yeast --

Live yeast is not the dried kind. You can use the dry version but live yeast I would say is much better. You just need to handle it with care especially when melting it because you could kill it and your dough wouldn't rise. Here in Sweden they are 2 types of yeast too. One kind for Sweet Breads like the buns in this case and another kind for normal breads. Hope that answers your question!!!
