What can I say other than it works a treat in bread and was relatively easy to divide up into portions to freeze. Great price.
Half of the yeast was frozen in small packets, using a tip from one of the flour mill sites - mix 12g fresh yeast into 30g bread flour until breadcrumbed (like you're rubbing butter into flour), then freeze. The other 500g went in the fridge, and is almost finished now, about a month after purchase. I wrapped it in fresh parchment paper, and put it in an airtight container. Apart from one change of parchment paper when the first one got too soggy, the fresh yeast has sat in the fridge and come to no harm. It really does last well. So, so nice to finally have access to fresh yeast again, years (decades?) after it disappeared from the shops.Tea cakes, flatbreads, cinnamon buns, foccacias, crispy pizzas, loaves, baps... and most of these freeze beautifully. 1kg is a lot of yeast, however it is manageable, and the results are a joy.
So cheap for such a huge quantity of fresh yeast! A tiny amount made a huge loaf. Ended up giving lots away last time but will freeze some this time!
I started making bread by hand when we started isolating due to covid-19. I’ve made some lovely loaves using dried yeast and was a bit scared of trying fresh, I have been pleasantly surprised. The bread tastes and smells lovely, it rises very well and baked perfectly. I’m converted, only problem is my hubby & son love it so I’m up to 5 loaves a week now. Never going back to shop bought bread.
I’ve been making my own bread for a few months now but always used dried yeast. I was amazed at the difference when using fresh yeast. I doubled the amount of fresh yeast and crumbled it into my flour and left my dough to rise. It rose so quickly! The bread was lovely and crusty on the outside and so soft and light on the inside. We always enjoy our homemade bread but the loaf made with fresh yeast was even better. I can’t wait to use it again. There is a lot in the pack so I’ve frozen some and I’ll be interested to see if it works as well after freezing.
