It's stunningly better than the stuff you buy in the grocery store.
Delia
We will have lots of yeast to last for a long time and love that it is shelf stable in the Mylar pack!

This is a great yeast, which makes my homemade bread rise very well.

I keep this yeast in my freezer and it always performs for me (I've had SAF yeast last years in the freezer with no problems). I usually re-vacuum-seal and freeze half of a pound of SAF and then keep the other half also in the freezer in an airtight, stainless steel container. This yeast can last about 9 years sealed in the freezer without losing much oomph at all (and probably STILL more active than most store-shelf yeasts sold at the supermarket).

This yeast rises FAST if you put your covered bowl or pan of dough in the sink with some warm water (or placed in a slightly warmed oven) and it works far better than expensive "bread-machine yeast" if you use a bread-machine.

If you make a lot of sweet dough which requires more sugar, then add some citric acid and powdered milk to help aid the yeast to rise (about 1/2 teaspoon citric acid and 1 teaspoon powdered milk per batch of bread dough) or you can buy Saf's 'special' yeast (gold package) for doughs that use more sugar.

If you've been disappointed with your baking endeavors in the past, it was probably the crappy yeast and not your baking skills, so get thee some quality baking yeast and you'll have success at long last.

Happy baking!

I've been using SAF yeast for 15 years. I keep the unopened pouches in the freezer. When I open a pouch, I pour it onto a pint-sized plastic jar to keep in the refrigerator. I use the plastic jar to refill a smaller jar, from which I get yeast when I make dough. That way, I don't have to open the larger jar often. It may sit in the refrigerator four years before I finish it. It still seems as potent as freshly purchased yeast.

I have been making bread machine bread for about four years now. Until recently I'd been using the little brown jars of Fleischmann's or Red Star bread machine yeast because I thought that was all there was. Then my local markets stopped carrying that variety. The little packets are way too expensive and I had a sad experience with cratered loaves and uneven texture when one cookbook assured me that active dry yeast would work fine with bread machines.

This yeast is amazing. Once I figured out the exact amount to use with my machine I've been getting beautifully rounded, fine textured whole wheat loaves every single time. It's stunningly better than the stuff you buy in the grocery store. I've been following the other reviewers' advice on how to store and keep the yeast, since I think I've got enough for several years. I wasn't quite clear on how much yeast I was buying here. One pound seemed a better deal than the grocery stores offer. But four pounds . . . it's practically free.

I got this for making fast alcohol. 2 12oz cans apple juice concentrate, refill both cans with sugar, add to gallon jug, top with water. add tsp yeast. week later bottle, enjoy 3-5 days later, cold.

no smell of bread or other old wives tales. this is a fast fermenting yeast that does the above recipe perfectly, due to speed of ferment it is cloudy even after cold crashing. whatever, this isnt for competitions, just tasty brew in 2 weeks for ~$3 gal

I've bought three one-pound bricks of this Instant Yeast in the last couple of years. They have given consistent results from first to last. I run my automatic bread maker at least twice a week, so I go through a lot of yeast and always make the best bread.

Since I got myself a bread maker, I use yeast regularly. The supermarket jar type is just so expensive consider the volume sold. After reading other's comment, I just fill saf instant yeast into the jar from my previous supermarket-brought yeast and put the remaining in the freezer for future use. The unopen pouches/bricks can be store anywhere in the kitchen.

Arrived with one of the four packages lacking a vacuum. They should be vacuum packed and like a brick. On closer inspection there was a small cut in the wrapper as if nicked by a box cutter. despite this the 4 units were inside a plastic wrap, so it was clear that they were packaged that way. Also, all 4 were 5 months into their 2 year shelf life (date of production 10/12, date of purchase 3/20/13).

SAF is great yeast to start. Love it. If you have problems with your bread not rising, it's probably your yeast. Who knows how long those packages have been in the store, they don't even have expiration dates on them. SAF has an expiration date, it's vacuum sealed and there's no chance of water getting in, activating your yeast, and making them useless.

Plus, I paid for four lbs what I would have paid for a single jar. I open up one package, put it in a container in the fridge, and store the rest in the freezer. My understanding is that they'll last two years past the expiry date that way. :)
