Storing Cake Yeast
« on: October 25, 2010, 05:34:26 PM »
What is the best way to store cake yeast and how long will it last?  I have a large block of it and am not sure how to store it. 
Thanks,
Scott

I wrap it up in wax paper then plastic wrap & then vacuum seal.  It lasts about 4 weeks.  I know people freeze it but I've heard that it kills the yeast so I don't.
