How many teaspoons of yeast in 10 grams?

10 grams of active dry yeast equals 1 level tablespoon of active dry yeast + 1 rounded teaspoon of active dry yeast. The following table represents the tsp/tbsp equivalents of the weight of yeast in grams. 

Amount of active dry yeast in grams Tsp/tbsp equivalents 
100 grams9 rounded tablespoons 
50 grams4 rounded tablespoons of active dry yeast + 1 level tablespoon of active dry yeast
40 grams3 rounded tablespoons of active dry yeast + 1 level tablespoon of active dry yeast
30 grams2 rounded tablespoons of active dry yeast + 2 rounded teaspoons of active dry yeast
25 grams2 rounded tablespoons of active dry yeast + 1 level teaspoon of active dry yeast
20 grams5 rounded teaspoons of active dry yeast
15 grams1 rounded tablespoon of active dry yeast + 1 rounded tablespoon of active dry yeast
12 grams3 rounded teaspoons of active dry yeast
11 grams 1 rounded tablespoon of active dry yeast
8 grams2 rounded teaspoons of active dry yeast
7 grams 1 rounded teaspoon of active dry yeast + 1 level teaspoon of active dry yeast
5 grams about two level teaspoons of active dry yeast

2 grams half of a rounded teaspoon of active dry yeast

How to measure fresh yeast mass with a spoon?

One tablespoon constitutes 20 grams and 7 grams makes one teaspoon of fresh yeast. When measuring with a spoon, make sure the surface of the yeast is leveled and not heaping. 

How to substitute different types of yeast?

Substituting instant yeast for active dry yeast: 1 part of instant yeast (100%) = 1.5 part of active dry yeast (150%)

Substituting active dry yeast for instant yeast: 1 part of active dry yeast (100%) = 0.75 part of active dry yeast or ¾

Substituting instant yeast for fresh compressed yeast: 1 part of instant yeast = 3 parts of fresh compressed yeast

Substituting fresh compressed yeast for instant yeast: 1 part of fresh yeast = 0.33 of instant yeast. So, part of instant yeast should be divided by 3

Substituting active dry yeast for fresh compressed yeast: 1 part of active dry yeast = 2 parts of fresh compressed yeast 

Substituting fresh compressed yeast for active dry yeast: 1 part of fresh compressed yeast = 0.5 part of fresh compressed yeast or ½

Combining all the above calculations, we get: 

1 part of instant yeast (100%) = 1.5 parts of active dry yeast (150%) = 3 parts of fresh compressed yeast (300%).

Dry and compressed yeast equivalents in envelop

1 envelope dry yeast = 2-1/2 teaspoons by volume= 2/3 ounce compressed yeast in rising power

2-1/2 teaspoons or 1/4 ounce of dry yeast=2/3 ounce compressed yeast

  • A simple rule of thumb is to multiply envelopes of dry yeast by 2/3 to get the ounces of compressed yeast. 
  • On the other hand, you need to multiply ounces of dry yeast by 8/3 to figure out ounces of compressed yeast
  • Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/8 to obtain the ounces of dry yeast
  • Multiply ounces of compressed yeast by 3/2 to get the number of envelopes of dry yeast.

How to make yeast dough? 

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 cup very warm milk 115 F, I use whole milk.
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter is well softened, almost melting.
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in the milk. Then stir in sugar, butter, salt, and eggs. Mix until homogeneous. Then stir in the flour incrementally. Mix until the flour is well-combined with the rest of the mixture. At the end of mixing, the sticky and shabby dough will form. 
  1. Place your sticky dough ball on a lightly floured work surface. Knead the dough until smooth and elastic. This should take about 5-6 minutes. A mixer will get the job done in about 4-5 minutes. Store the dough in the fridge or freezer if you like.
  1. For immediate baking, proceed with the dough-making process by letting it rise in a greased and covered bowl. It will take about an hour for the dough to double in size if the surrounding temperature is 72 ℉.
  1. When the dough has doubled in size, rupture it by punching it in the middle. Now flour, shape and bake the dough as desired.
