thezaman,

The general rule of thumb is three times the weight of the IDY, or 9 grams (3 x 3 = 9) of fresh yeast in your case. Technically, because fresh yeast is about 70% water, you should reduce the amount of the formula water by the difference in weight between the fresh yeast and dry yeast. Otherwise, the yield will change. So, in your case, you should reduce the formula water by 6 grams when substituting fresh yeast for IDY.
