How much instant, rapid rise yeast should I use when my bread machine recipe calls for 1 1/2 teaspoons of regular dry yeast?


Google returned this link with the following conversion:

"...1 tsp Active Dry = 2/3 tsp Instant (100% Active Dry = 66% Instant)

1 tsp Instant = 1 1/2 tsp Active Dry (100% Instant = 150% Active Dry)

You can substitute one for the other in any recipe. Remember that active dry must be dissolved in a small amount of lukewarm water before you use it...."

  • I'm pretty sure that's marked on the side of many yeast containers, too. – Rob Feb 2 at 10:55
