If the recipe just says 50 grams yeast, is that fresh yeast, rapid rise yeast or regular dry yeast? For example- Bread with Fresh Grinder Flour says 50 g yeast.


  • Hello!

    Usually our recipes calls for fresh yeast, unless anything else is specified.

  • I'm in Canada.  Fresh yeast does not seem to be readily available. What is the conversion for instant or traditional dry yeast?

  • Hi Penny,

    I would advise you to test this converter, convert from compressed baker's yeast to your preferred type of yeast 😀
