Fresh Yeast availability in the UK

January 6, 2013 - 10:12am -- Ruralidle

There are many posts on TFL that recommend trying to source fresh yeast from your local, large supermarket bakery department - when it is a bakery not a tanning salon for partially baked loaves.  Also, Richard Bertinet will supply good fresh yeast but either in 500g blocks or on a regular "plan".  There are also some specialist suppliers such as NiceisLife (Italian produce ) who also sell small packs of fresh yeast.

The old school seems to be to cream the yeast with a small amount of sugar and a bit of the water from the recipe. Then It seems like some crumble it into the flour with the fingers which is my practice using instant.
