  • Yeast Conversion Chart

    I have some recipes that call for "fresh yeast" which I can't find nearby . So I went looking for a conversion to dried yeast and found this chart. Maybe someone else will find it useful.

    YEAST MATH-EQUIVALENTS & CONVERSIONS

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

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

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

    1 envelopes dry yeast = about 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon by volume
    1 envelopes dry yeast = 3/8 ounce by weight
    1 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.

    This table is presumably for active dry yeast (ady) rather than instant dry yeast (idy) which is somewhat more active, and requires less quantity.
