Does anyone know a conversion rate for compressed yeast vs. active dry yeast?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Small cake yeast (.6 oz) = 1 envelope active dry yeast
Large cake yeast (2 oz) = 3 envelopes active dry yeast
The rule of thumb for converting yeast is to divide of by or multiply by 3. Fresh yeast to dry yeast, divide by 3, i.e. 25 g fresh yeast use 8.33 g. From dry yeast to fresh yeast, multiply by 3, 8 grams dry yeast use 24 g fresh yeast.
