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.
