How much is ¾ tsp yeast in grams?

3/4 US teaspoon of yeast equals 3.51 grams. A single envelope or packet of Active Dry Yeast, Instant Yeast, Rapid Rise Yeast, Fast Rising Yeast, or Bread Machine Yeast weighs 1/4 ounce which equals 7 grams or 2 1/4 teaspoons (11 mL).

How to bake with yeast?

There are a few tips that can help you give a head start especially if you are a new baker.

  1. Yeast that is correctly stored in the freezer won’t go bad for months. So you do not have to worry about your yeast going dormant. Dormant yeast is not dead.
  1. You do not need a thermometer to correctly measure the water temperature. If the water feels warm to the touch, it is perfect for activating the yeast.
  1. Stirring sugar into the yeast-water mixture has no scientific significance. So, you may skip this step if you want. 
  1. The perfect surrounding temperature for the yeast to rise ranges from 70 F to 80 F. So, if the outside temperature is colder, place your dough in a warm, turned-off oven, for proofing. If the temperature is too warm, a cold oven is a way to go.
  1. The proofing time is short for dough only consisting of flour (starch) and water. If the dough contains ingredients such as eggs, dairy, fat, or salt, expect a little delay in the rising of the dough.

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%).
