Fresh yeast to dry yeast conversion?

marthadumptruck | Nov 10, 2006 01:31 PM

I recently bought a bread boook and all the recipes call for fresh yeast. I don't have easy access to fresh yeast where I live.

Does anyone know the conversion rate from fresh yeast to dry yeast?
For example, if the recipe asks for "1/2 ounce fresh yeast," how much dry yeast should I use?

Thanks.
