Product Description

Red Star Active Dry Yeast is cake yeast in a semi-dormant state. The drying process in its manufacture reduces moisture content, giving it a longer shelf life than cake yeast while retaining optimum activity. When activated, it provides ultimate baking activity in all yeast dough- low sugar to highly sweetened breads. Red Star Active Dry Yeast is designed for yeast-leavened bread and dough. The finished product will have the particular flavor, texture and consistency associated with a yeast-leavened product.

Keeps well in freezer.
Deborah A. Gies
This method works well, and it's much, much cheaper than buying those horribly expensive jars or packets of yeast at the grocery store.
RoundRobyn
I use this yeast to make bread in my bread machine, and it works beautifully.

My daughter-in-law gave me a 2 pound bag of Red Star yeast last Christmas and it has lasted me 8 months, baking a loaf of bread almost everyday. I take a small amount and put it in one of my old 4 ounce yeast jars and freeze the rest and it has kept very well. In my opinion Red Star is the best yeast out there, but not always available at my supermarket and you can't beat the price, 2 pounds for $14.88 sure beats $8.99 for a 4 ounce jar at the supermarket.

If you bake on a regular basis, you also know that the tiny packets most grocery stores sell their yeast in are pretty expensive (75c per use at least). This bag has the same product without the extraneous packaging and will serve you for months while bringing your yeast cost per bread/cake down to pennies (10-15x cheaper :)). Please note that yeast needs to be kept in the fridge once it is open.

As far as I am concerned, bulk is the only way to buy yeast. These little packets and tiny jars are ridiculously priced for what you are getting, and beside that most people arent using enough yeast in their baking either. I use yeast for everything from bread to pancakes to corn bread. I use more than most people do. Unlike baking powder and soda, yeast is actually nutritional (as long as it is cooked, never eat it uncooked). Yeast adds a nice flavor and aroma not found in these 'powders'. I don't know where some of the common practices for using yeast came from, but I've found that you don't need to let things rise two or three times unless, that is, you are looking for a way to pass time. Also like in pancakes, just mix up the batter and throw it on the griddle, it rises for me. But don't be so stingy with the yeast. Yeast is not some rare thing that needs to be conserved, actually it is cheaply made, yet yeast boasts rather high nutritional value.
I may be biased, I rarely if ever bake with white flour, I use whole wheat, corm meal or perhaps rye, mostly whole wheat. I use egg in my dough, batter etc., rather than the added white flour for gluten. Again the egg adds flavor, nutrition and RISE POWER without damaging the texture or character of the whole wheat or cornmeal product.

Red Star is offering a great deal here, and the price is right.

I compared this yeast to a popular brand of jarred, bread machine yeast. This yeast gets an "A" while the other yeast gets an "F" (which coincidentally is the starting letter of its name.) The "F" yeast did not last a month, even though it was stored properly. Within 4 weeks, it had lost its potency and failed to make decent bread. Meanwhile, this 2 lb bag of Red Star, kept in a sealed plastic tub in the freezer, has worked for months on end.

Just make sure you store the opened bag in a proper container to keep it dry and cool, and make sure to bring the yeast up to room temperature before throwing it into the bread machine. This is a very economical way to buy yeast. If it's too much for you, split the bag between you and a friend. I find I have to cut back on the amount of yeast in bread machine recipes; for example, 1 1/2 tsps means I'll use 1 1/4. This yeast seems a lot more active, so I find I need less.

I bake quite a bit. I make pizzas, breads, etc usually at least once a week.

I have found this brand of yeast to work well. The granules are tiny.

Yes, you can get bulk yeast a bit cheaper in some discount stores, and in groceries, but this is for sure worth it at the price.

Just not having to run around the kitchen looking for little packets of yeast, or having to cut them open, try to pour into your measuring spoon, etc. I divide the yeast up to about 2 to 4 zip locks and stick them in the fridge. I keep one handy to use, all I have to do is open it up, stick in the measuring spoon, and close it back up. Easy. And you never have to worry about running out.

You can save TONS of money making your own breads and pizzas, and it is fun, too. And almost always tastes better.
