YEAST MATH-EQUIVALENTS & CONVERSIONS

The following conversions make it possible to substitute one form of yeast for another.

1 envelope dry yeast = 2 ½ tsp. by volume
1 envelope dry yeast = ¼ ounce by weight
1 envelope dry yeast = 2/3 ounce compressed yeast in rising power
1 tablespoon compressed yeast = 1¼ tsp. dry yeast

Therefore, 2 ½ teaspoons or ¼ ounce dry yeast is equal to 2/3 ounce compressed yeast.

1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = about 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon by volume
1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = 3/8 ounce by weight
1 ½ envelopes dry yeast = 1 ounce compressed yeast in rising power

Therefore, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon or 3/8 ounce dry yeast is equal to 1 ounce
compressed yeast.

1. Multiply envelopes of dry yeast by 2/3 to determine ounces of compressed yeast.

2. Multiply ounces of dry yeast by 8/3 to determine ounces of compressed yeast.

3. Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/8 to determine ounces of dry yeast.

4. Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/2 to determine number of envelopes of dry yeast.

This looks complicated, but it's really not. Since I didn't know whether you bought the little foil packages or the jar of yeast, I printed it all for our use in substitution.
