How long does yeast last?
Approximately 3 months. However, it must be kept in the refrigerator for optimum performance.
There is a simple test you can conduct to see if your yeast is still effective. Simply add one teaspoon of yeast and one teaspoon of sugar to a cup half-filled with warm water. If, after 30 minutes or so the mix is reacting and frothing over the cup’s rim, then it is still functioning properly.
