The fresh yeast that I purchased from Fabko.com, a Polish store located here in the U.S., is still going strong after 4 months stored in the fridge, wrapped in wax paper and stored in a plastic bag.  However, today the block of fresh yeast morphed into a crumbly mass, half of it was crumbly and the other half a solid block.  But the yeast performed admirably in today's loaf of bread, giving a very good rise.

I have frozen dried yeast that performs admirably and I think it is at least 15 years old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Regular ADY. Probably Fleishman brand but maybe Red Star. I can't seem to find fresh yeast locally so use dried and wild yeasts.
