Converting Fahrenheit and Celsius

  • To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 degrees and divide by 1.8
  • To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 and add 32 degrees

Converting Yeast

  • Converting from fresh yeast to active dry yeast you multiply the weight of the fresh yeast by 0.4
  • Converting from fresh yeast to instant dry yeast you multiply the weight of the fresh yeast by 0.33

Tip: Buy a kitchen scale and your baking life will be a whole lot easier! Especially with weighing small amounts of yeast and salt, a precision scale that can weigh tenths of grams is something I couldn’t do without. You know exactly what you put in and will discover that there is a difference in taste when putting e.g. 8.2 or 9 grams of salt in your bread
