Can you Freeze Yeast?

You may wonder if it is a good idea to freeze yeast. The answer is yes. Yeast simply goes dormant when frozen and can be used directly out of the freezer without the need for thawing time. In many cases, it is actually recommended to freeze standard dry yeast to keep it fresh and active. You can freeze Is yeast freezable?Is yeast freezable?yeast up to a year or more before it goes bad, a little longer than in a refrigerator. Dry yeast is generally not susceptible to freezer burn and other negative effects of freezing food. For fresh yeast, it is generally better to refrigerate it, although freezing it will work as well. Frozen fresh yeast must be thawed before use in most cases. For more on the subject, read our guide to freezing bread dough.
