Yeast - Red Star Active Dry Yeast, 1 pound bag


Regular price $5.95 Sale

  • Red Star® Active Dry Yeast is dried under carefully controlled conditions to maintain activity, and is comparable to Lesaffre SAF-instant® yeast
  • A specific strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is used for production and is designed to make sure all of your yeasted doughs rise perfectly!
  • There is a nationwide yeast shortage currently, and we must limit sales to 2 per transaction.
  • Active dry yeast requires a little warm water conditioning (110 degree water, just a few tablespoons.  Then let it sit for a few minutes and stir until completely dissolved.)
  • Saf-Instant yeast has a smaller granule size and can be mixed directly into your dough without warm water activation.  It can be used in bread machines, but is not considered a rapid rise yeast.  I, personally, still choose to "activate it" by dissolving it in warm water.
  • For a review of the yeast comparisons, we love this article by King Arthur's Test Kitchens:
  • For long term storage, freeze or refrigerate your yeast in an airtight container.
  • Shippable.
