What can you do with old yeast

Answered By: Christopher Morris Date: created: Aug 30 2022

You can continue to use it as yeast, as long as you check first to make sure it’s still alive.

Sprinkle the yeast into the lukewarm liquid with a small amount of the sugar (if using) and let it “bloom” for a few minutes.

If it grows and you get beige plaques of floating yeast, it’s fine to use in baking..

Can yeast sit in water too long

Answered By: Adam Cook Date: created: Apr 30 2022

The damage threshold is 100°F for cake yeast, 120°F for active dry, and 130°F for instant. All yeasts die at 138°F.
