I was given a bag of instant yeast. Every recipe that I have calls for packets of dry, or cakes of compressed. Does anyone have a convenient method of transcribing packets of dry to tsps of instant? Thanks very much.:lips:

Which instant yeast are you using?

Although I'm not a baker just a baker-wannabe, the ratio of instant yeast to flour is approx. 1/2 tsp instant yeast per cup of flour.

Instant yeast contains about 25% more live yeast cells than active dry yeast. You can use 25% less instant yeast in recipes calling for active dry.

Oops, I made a mistake. That's 1/2 tsp instant years per cup of flour - not 1 tsp. It's been corrected in my post above.
