This automatic yeast equivalents calculator, for yeast alternatives, assumes the (world's standard practice) weight and volume measures are: Active dry yeast = 0.25 ounce per 2-1/2 teaspoons, Instant yeast = 1 ounce per 3 tablespoons. Fresh compressed baker's yeast weighs 122 - 130 g US measuring cup = 128 - 136 g Metric cup/250mL (for crumbled yeast) and 254 grams per US cup = 268 grams per Metric cup exactly when yeast is tightly pressed into cup (100 percent of all air removed.) Easy convert between these three yeast types - and replace each one yeast for another yeast's replacement/equivalent measure in cups - teaspoons tsp - tablespoons tbsp. I will add also wild yeast right after I learn how to work with it.
You may enter whole numbers, decimals or fractions ie: 7, 29.35, 15 3/4

# Yeasts replacing formula calculating method

The yeast calculating math-formula:

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

Cup of compressed fresh baker's yeast
( pressed into cup - air removed )

# Four yeast types equivalents

## Active dry yeast versus instant yeast chart

 active dry to instant yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup of instant yeast equals tablespoon-s of instant yeast equals teaspoon-s of instant yeast equals grams of instant yeast 1 cup of active dry yeast 2/3 cup 10-2/3 tbsp 32 tsp 100g 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast 0.04 cup 2/3 tbsp 2 tsp 6.3g 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast 0.01 cup 1/4 tbsp 2/3 tsp 2.1g

To convert between various yeast type amounts and to replace one with another is relatively simple, but, the final measuring then should preferably be accurate for achieving a correctly working dough.

## Active dry yeast versus compressed fresh baker's yeast chart

 active dry to baker's fresh yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup-s of fresh yeast equals tablespoon-s of fresh yeast equals teaspoon-s of fresh yeast equals grams of fresh yeast 1 cup of active dry yeast 2 cup 32 tbsp 96 tsp 272g 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast 1/8 cup 2 tbsp 6 tsp 17g 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast 0.04 cup 2/3 tbsp 2 tsp 5.7g

Cup of fresh baker's yeast
( crumbled - not pressed into the cup )

## Instant yeast versus active dry yeast chart

 instant to active dry yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup-s of active dry yeast equals tablespoon-s of active dry yeast equals teaspoon-s of active dry yeast equals grams of active dry yeast 1 cup of instant yeast 1-1/2 cup 24 tbsp 72 tsp 204g 1 tablespoon of instant yeast 0.1 cup 1-1/2 tbsp 4-1/2 tsp 13g 1 teaspoon of instant yeast 0.03 cup 1/2 tbsp 1-1/2 tsp 4.25g
Example on how/when to use instant yeast to active dry yeast converter:
Q. 1.5 tablespoons instant yeast converted to active dry yeast
A. 2.25 or 2-1/4 tbsp - tablespoons of ACTIVE DRY yeast replace 1.5 tbsp - tablespoon of INSTANT yeast.
Math : 1.5 tbsp - tablespoon of INSTANT yeast = 2.25 - 2-1/4 tbsp - tablespoons of ACTIVE DRY yeast
Conversion Formula : 1 part of INSTANT yeast = 1-1/2 or 1.5 or one and half parts of ACTIVE DRY yeast

## Instant yeast versus compressed fresh baker's yeast chart

 instant to baker's fresh yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup-s of fresh yeast equals tablespoon-s of fresh yeast equals teaspoon-s of fresh yeast equals grams of fresh yeast 1 cup of instant yeast 3 cup 48 tbsp 144 tsp 408g 1 tablespoon of instant yeast 0.2 cup 3 tbsp 9 tsp 25.5g 1 teaspoon of instant yeast 0.06 cup 1 tbsp 3 tsp 8.5g

## Fresh baker's compressed yeast versus active dry yeast chart

 fresh baker's to active dry yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup-s of active dry yeast equals tablespoon-s of active dry yeast equals teaspoon-s of active dry yeast equals grams of active dry yeast 1 cup of fresh baker's yeast 1/2 cup 8 tbsp 24 tsp 68g 1 tablespoon of fresh baker's yeast 0.03 cup 1/2 tbsp 1-1/2 tsp 4.3g 1 teaspoon of fresh baker's yeast 0.01 cup 1/5 tbsp 1/2 tsp 1.4g
Example for how/when to use fresh yeast to dry active yeast converter:
Q. What is a conversion of 150g fresh yeast to dry active yeast by teaspoons?
A. There are 26-1/2 tsp of dry yeast needed to replace 150 grams of fresh yeast.
Math : 150 g - ( grams ) of FRESH yeast = 26.46 tsp - ( teaspoons ) of ACTIVE DRY yeast
Conversion Formula : 1 part of FRESH yeast = 1/2 or 0.5 or half part of ACTIVE DRY yeast

## Fresh baker's compressed yeast versus instant yeast chart

 fresh baker's to instant yeast conversion chart: equivalent to => equals cup-s of instant yeast equals tablespoon-s of instant yeast equals teaspoon-s of instant yeast equals grams of instant yeast 1 cup of fresh baker's yeast 1/3 cup 5-1/3 tbsp 16 tsp 50.4g 1 tablespoon of fresh baker's yeast 0.02 cup 1/3 tbsp 1 tsp 3.2g 1 teaspoon of fresh baker's yeast 0.007 cup 0.11 tbsp 0.33 tsp 1.1g

# Replacing yeast with Brewers' yeast

Brewer's yeast math-formula:

1 part of brewer's yeast (100%) = 0.45 part ( ~ 1/2 ) of active dry yeast (45%)
1 part of active dry yeast (100%) = 2.2 parts of brewer's yeast (220%)

Brewer's yeast, even though it is nutritionally rich in protein, chromium, selenium and B vitamins it does not contain essential Vitamin B12 so vegetarians take that into account. A great vitamin B12 supplement solution is to take Folate tablets - Folic Acid, B12 and B6 combination (Folate repairs our DNA as well - I have one table every day.) OK back to the brewers yeast, it is slow-rising yeast (because it produces ethanol instead of carbon dioxide which faster yeasts make), dough will rise much longer even if more yeast was added. Which means; dough can rise more than once, therefore, it can be used to add more flavor or texture into certain/quite marvelous baking. We use it with harder coarser flours, the Spelt flour is just one example.

Measuring weight of 1 cup volume of Brewer's yeast :

Brewer's yeast powder
measuring the mass of 1 cup

# Sachet of instant yeast ...

One sachet of instant yeast from a box may weigh anywhere between 5g to 15g therefore notice this weight number on the original yeast packaging.

I prefer to use the instant yeast as it contains a lot more of yeast living cells, 4 times more than active dry yeast and by 300% more than the compressed fresh yeast. And I also bake a lot with adding the brewers yeast as it produces much nicer flavours and it is healthier to digest - use the calculator above to work our the optimal equivalent amounts to replace other yeasts for powdered brewers' yeast type.
