I have a recipe that lists the quantity of dry yeast I need, but I have only fresh yeast.

How much fresh yeast should I use, knowing the quantity of dry yeast?

Conversion Measurements for Using Different Yeasts in Recipes:

Multiply the amount of instant yeast by 3 for the equivalent amount of fresh yeast.

Multiply the amount of active dry yeast by 2.5 for the equivalent amount of fresh yeast.

Multiply the amount of instant yeast by 1.25 for the equivalent of active dry yeast.
