SAF-Instant: How long to thaw?

I just pulled my last brick of SAF-Instant out of the freezer, and of course I need it now. O: )  Can I use it extra cold for my WW sammie bread, or do you need to let it thaw to just cold?

TIA,

- Jennifer : )

Just use it as is.

Open the package and just use it..I store my SAF Gold instant yeast in the freezer in a clear acrylic flip-top canister with a silicone seal..I take the container out of the freezer, measure out what I need for the recipe, seal the canister, and place it right back in the freezer..The yeast should stay viable for 1.5-2 years if it is only exposed to room temperatures this way..
