Brewer's Yeast Question

Hi All,

Can anyone here tell me the ratio of freshly pulled brewer's yeast from beer making to dry measurement in baking? I have the opportunity to get some from a local micro~craft brewery but don't even know where to start experimenting with it.

Thanks,

Toni

Web search: "Brewer's yeast for baking bread"

My second hit looks very interesting(and informative):

I'm sure you can find many more informative hits. Remember: baker's yeast was originally from brewer's yeasts.

Good luck!

Thanks MrFrost! I'll include this link in my research! I think it'll require some experimentation~oh darn, that means I'll have to go play, oops I mean work in the kitchen!
