comment How long can fresh yeast be frozen?
Plain and simply, no. In my life as it currently is, there simply is no solution to that problem. But we're digressing ... fresh yeast is what most of my recipes call for, as I already mentioned. I really just wanted to find out if freezing yeast is a viable thing for me to do, since I'm using two to four cubes a week.

@rumtscho I'd agree with the storage option if I was the only person using that kitchen. I'm not, and frequently I have to search for items that were put 'somewhere' instead where they belong. Same goes for loose sachets of [put ingredient here] - I've simply given up on that.

No, that's not the case, it's as easy to get as fresh yeast, just that no supermarket seems to have anything else than 3*7g sachets, and I simply didn't fancy buying 50 of those to store them somewhere - those seem to distribute themselves within the kitchen cupboards a lot more than a few cubes of fresh yeast within the fridge. Also, most of the recipes I use call for fresh yeast, and so far I haven't been tempted to convert them.

Thanks for this ... I disagree with the "fresh yeast is hardly seen" bit though - probably for the same reason that the brand names you and @SAJ14SAJ mentioned don't ring any bell with me - I'm in germany and not in the US. I've hardly ever used dried yeast, which is why I've asked this question in the first place.
