Ginsberg "The Rye Baker" errata?

I'm trying to find out if there is an errata sheet anywhere for Stanley Ginsberg's "The Rye Baker". The specific item that I'm wondering about is in the Buttery Crispbread recipe on page 193 of my copy: the quantities for instant yeast seem inconsistent:

Grams: 16

Ounces: 0.55

Volume: 1 1/4 tsp

When I weigh 1 1/4 tsp of instant yeast, I get about 4 grams, which is in line with the common 1 pkt yeast = 2.5 tsp = 7 grams.

Stan has two web sites:  New York Bakers and The Rye Baker.  If there is an errata sheet for the book it will be there I'm sure.  You could also email him directly through either site, or send him a private message here on TFL.

Note:  I have no affiliation or relationship with either of these sites or Stan Ginsberg, beyond being a long time customer.

Thanks! 

I've had no luck using the contact form on The Rye Baker site. I did find an errata sheet for "Inside the Jewish Bakery" at https://www.stanleyginsbergbooks.com/ITJB/files/IJB_Errata.pdf, but nothing analogous for "The Rye Baker". I'll try a PM.

A lot of us have purchased his books so let us know what you find out. He is usually pretty responsive but I know he is also very busy.
