How to substitute Block Yeast for Packet Yeast
« on: June 30, 2020, 02:25:45 PM »
I've always used the Fleischmanns packets of IDY for my Pizzas. (using the Lehman recipe and cold fermentation process)

The supermarkets have been void of yeast due to COVID-19 but I have a 1 lb block of this yeast (Lesaffre Saf- instant Yeast)

If a batch of dough calls for .75 TSP of IDY, do I use the same amount of this yeast?

TIA

I'm pretty sure that's IDY. Isn't it granulated?

Store it in the freezer, and it will last years.
