YEAST MATH-EQUIVALENTS & CONVERSIONS The following conversions make it possible to substitute one form of yeast for another. 1 envelope dry yeast = 2 ½ t. by volume
1 envelope dry yeast = ¼ ounce by weight,BR. 1 envelope dry yeast = 2/3 ounce compressed yeast in rising power
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.
