We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

I am usuing a recipe that calls for 70 grams of fresh yeast. However, I am unable to find any. How many ounces of active dry yeast can be substituted? Thank you for any help or tips you can give!

I found this. So 70 g of compressed yeast is equivalent to 26.25 g of active dry yeast/ 26.25 g is 0.926 oz.

YEAST MATH-EQUIVALENTS & CONVERSIONS

The following conversions make it possible to substitute one form of yeast for another.

1 envelope dry yeast = 2 ½ t. by volume
1 envelope dry yeast = ¼ ounce by weight
1 envelope dry yeast = 2/3 ounce compressed yeast in rising power

Therefore, 2 ½ teaspoons or ¼ ounce dry yeast is equal to 2/3 ounce compressed yeast.

1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = about 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon by volume
1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = 3/8 ounce by weight
1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = 1 ounce compressed yeast in rising power

Therefore, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon or 3/8 ounce dry yeast is equal to 1 ounce
compressed yeast.

1. Multiply envelopes of dry yeast by 2/3 to determine ounces of compressed yeast.

2. Multiply ounces of dry yeast by 8/3 to determine ounces of compressed yeast.

3. Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/8 to determine ounces of dry yeast.

4. Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/2 to determine number of envelopes of dry yeast.

Hi, After reading the last post am not quite sure. Is the compressed yeast the fresh yeasht. This you can get from Tesco bakery if you ask, its free as thay stick to an old law were thay give and not sell it. I think Sainsbury do it too. Must admit I`ve bin looking for fresh yeast recepies, not bin easy!!
