To keep your package yeast fresh, does it need to be refrigerated? 
Love your newsletters. Thank you.


Thanks for the question! You may store unopened yeast in a cool, dry place. However, I prefer storing yeast in my refrigerator. Store it in the back of the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to about 4 months. Measure the amount you plan to use and bring to room temperature. Return container to the refrigerator immediately. As yeast ages, it loses some of its potency, which results in longer rising times. For best results ,use before the expiration date.
