Fresh Yeast Question

November 6, 2008 - 9:29am -- fladad

Someone just gifted me with a bread book called "The New Bread Book" by Ursula Ferrigno, which I do really appreciate, but all the recipes call for FRESH YEAST, such as 1/4 oz(10G) crumbled, is there some sort of a conversion to instant or rapid rise yeast?  I really do not want to search out a bakery, not any in my loacal area, to get some, and I've read it does not last very long, any ideas?  Thanks.
