Fresh Yeast lifespan
« on: December 02, 2021, 09:50:54 PM »
I've been working on NY style pizza doughs using fresh yeast instead of IDY...

My brick of fresh bakers yeast was purchased 10/29 and has been in the fridge wrapped in plastic wrap since then.

Do you think the yeast is still good to use?

Appreciate any help, thanks.

I try to buy new fresh yeast every couple of weeks, that said if the yeast still crumbles it's probably good, and if it's just smearing you'd better get some new.

It might also be better on the inside than the outside..
