Galangal- Fresh vs powder

Does anybody know the substitution ratio for dried vs fresh galangal? My fresh source no longer carries it and so now I'm stuck using jarred powder.

  1. Start with 1tsp for each inch of fresh called for.
    If you can get the dried slices it is much better than the powder, unfortunately neither is really much good. You may want to add some fresh common ginger to complement it.
