To test your yeast to make sure it is still good, please see our yeast test below:

The following instructions can be used to determine the freshness and quality of your yeast. To test, follow these instructions: Place 1/2 cup of lukewarm water into a small bowl or cup. Stir 1 teaspoon of sugar into the water. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of yeast over the surface. Place bowl or cup in a warm area and allow it to sit for 10 minutes undisturbed. The mixture should foam and produce a strong yeast aroma. If this does not occur, the yeast is inactive and stale and new yeast should be purchased.
