The yeast I use is compressed fresh “cake” yeast. Budweiser makes a good cake yeast. If you cannot find it, go to your baker or local doughnut shop and ask to buy some. It costs pennies and produces incomparable results. Divide the yeast into one- and two-ounce portions. Wrap them well in plastic wrap, then in aluminum foil; they may be stored in the freezer for several weeks to several months.
