It's cake yeast (CY). If you use ADY normally, you can simply double the amount of yeast and use cake yeast. Or you can use this conversion table http://www.theartisan.net/convert_yeast_two.htm

z3r01,

As Craig noted, the entry for fresh yeast in the dough calculating tools is Cake Yeast (abbreviated as CY). Fresh yeast is called by many other names, including cake yeast, wet yeast and compressed yeast. They are all the same thing.

Hey Luis,
Where in Russos did you find that? I'm in there all the time and never saw it. Of course, I never asked about it either.
