Where can I find fresh yeast?
I want to bake my own bread again. In Germany you can find fresh yeast (these little moist cubes wrapped in foil or waxed paper) in every supermarket in the cool section. Not so much here. The Coop I go to only carries dry yeast. I called around (Kowalski's, Lund's,...) and if at all they only have it during the holiday season.
Please help! I find it makes quite a difference.
You might just try a different coop. I don't shop for it, so I don't know about yeast other than there are varieties (brewer's yeast, baker's yeast, etc.) but I see some yeast in the refrigerated section of Mississippi Market.
And I wonder if a store like Northern Brewer would carry it in the form you're looking for. Check http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing... .
Thanks for the good info. Cub in St. Paul had it. Whole Foods carries it, but they were out of stock.
I was appalled that a lilttle cube costs $2.30, though! In Germany the same thing is about 50 cents. Plus when I opened it, it was very dry and looked nothing like the fresh yeast I'm used to. Hmh... Maybe I will bite the bullet and bake with dry yeast after all...
Just saw a post on Mn.General
Someone called Kowalskis
The poster is expecting to receive a 1lb brick of fresh yeast from their baking dept, delivered to his local store
Expected cost is supposed to be $1 for the brick.
Suggestion was to go to your nearest Kowalskis and ask the manager to get some for you.
