    Hello,

    I recently baught a jar of yeast instead of buying the individual packages and I was wondering where I should store it.
    Do I keep it in the pantry or the fridge? How long can I keep it (the expiry date on the jat is in a year buy I know that once I open it it will go bad sooner than that)?

    and another question: each packet of yeast is 8g. Do you know how much is this in volume? 1/4tsp 1/2tsp?

    Thanks a lot. icon_smile.gif

    I keep my yeast in the fridge. I think the measurement is about 1 1/2 tsp.

    There are 2 1/4 tsp per yeast packet--or a scant tablespoon. I keep my jars of yeast in the freezer and they last for a couple years (or more).

    I tend to go through alot of yeast. I buy the bakery packs of yeast, I just store them in my cupboard and it takes me a couple months. I will probably use it faster because I have a KA mixer now and don't have to buy bread when I run out and it is a work day. Now I can stand there and watch it mix and knead.

    I store mine in the fridge. I go through a jar in a month or two in the winter time when it's cool enough to bake regularly. I've heard of storing it in the freezer, but I havn't noticed much of a difference except that it takes a little longer to proof.

    I buy the big bags of yeast at costco, then keep a jar full in my cupboard for everyday use and the excess in a zip-lock bag in the freezer. Haven't had any problems yet!

    I buy the bag at Cosco to and fill a pint up with the yeast and put it in the fridge.
