## How to measure fresh yeast mass with a spoon?

### How many grams of fresh yeast mass are in a tablespoon?

There are 20 grams of fresh yeast mass in one tablespoon.

### How many grams of fresh yeast are in a teaspoon?

There are 7 grams of fresh yeast in one teaspoon.

### How to substitute different types of yeast?

If you do not have the type of yeast that is mentioned in a recipe, you can substitute it with another one instead. We will teach you how to make, for example, active dry yeast to fresh yeast conversion, using one simple formula:

#### How to substitute instant yeast for active dry yeast?

1 part of instant yeast (100%) = 1.5 part of active dry yeast (150%)

For example: You have in a recipe 3 grams of instant yeast, so 3*1.5=4.5, you get 4.5 grams of active dry yeast.

#### How to substitute active dry yeast for instant yeast?

1 part of active dry yeast (100%) = 0.75 part of active dry yeast or ¾.

For example: You have in a recipe 3 grams of active dry yeast, so 3*0.7=2.25, you get 2.25 grams of instant yeast

#### How to substitute instant yeast for fresh compressed yeast?

1 part of instant yeast = 3 parts of fresh compressed yeast.

For example: You have in a recipe 3 grams of instant yeast, so 3*3=9, you get 9 grams of fresh compressed yeast.

#### How to substitute fresh compressed yeast for instant yeast?

1 part of fresh yeast = 0.33 of instant yeast. So, part of instant yeast should be divided by 3.

For example: You have in a recipe 6 grams of fresh compressed yeast, so 6/3=2, you get 2 grams of instant yeast.

#### How to substitute active dry yeast for fresh compressed yeast?

1 part of active dry yeast = 2 parts of fresh compressed yeast.

For example: You have in a recipe 6 grams of active dry yeast, so 6*2=12, you get 12 grams of fresh compressed yeast.

#### How to substitute fresh compressed yeast for active dry yeast?

1 part of fresh compressed yeast = 0.5 part of fresh compressed yeast or ½.

For example: You have in a recipe 8 grams of fresh compressed yeast, so 8*0.5=4 or 8/2=4, you get 4 grams of active dry yeast.

We can summon up all above calculations into one formula:

1 part of instant yeast (100%) = 1.5 parts of active dry yeast (150%) = 3 parts of fresh compressed yeast (300%).

### 1 tablespoon of dry yeast equals how much fresh yeast?

Be very careful to apply this formula for substituting yeast measured in spoons, as 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast does not equal to 2 spoons of fresh compressed yeast. First convert amount to grams than find equivalent in grams, which you will convert again into spoons.

We hope that this article will be helpful and you will be able to measure different types of yeast without scales. The formula for substituting one type of yeast for another can be very handy in kitchen, save it and will not have to look for it again. All your advices and commentaries you can leave in a section below. We will be happy if you find this article valuable and useful.
