Hi I just moved to the States and can't find fresh yeast... Do you have any idea where I can buy some?

Thank you

Moutse,

Maybe you can get some ideas from the recent thread at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,27922.msg282322.html#msg282322.

A little more specificity as to where you are in the US might help others help you.
Pizza is not bread.

Some supermarkets carry fresh yeast made by Fleischmann's or Red Star:

and
http://www.redstaryeast.com/products/red-star%C2%AE/red-star%C2%AE-cake-fresh-yeast

It is found in the dairy department. As Red Star says, it is found mostly in the Midwest and Northeast.

Another possibility is to ask a high quality bakery in your area if they use fresh yeast and if they can sell you some.

When I wanted to TRY it, I went to my local pizzeria and bought a few dollars worth.


Where do you live?

I know this is a little late, but I just joined the forum and if you're still looking for fresh yeast, go to any local bakery, you can usually pick up a 1/4 pound of yeast for a little more than a $1
