Dry Bulk Yeast vs. Yeast Packets?

Hi,
Does anyone know how much yeast is in a packet? I have bulk yeast but forget how many teaspoons or tablespoons are in a packet. So many recipes call for packets.

2 and 1/2 tsps to one packet of yeast. I do it all the time.

Tell me why it measures @ 1 1/2 level teaspoons? Using standard measuring spoons.

Susan,
what is equal to the packet yeast is 2 1/4 teaspoon or 1/4 oz. Hope this helps. Beverly in Arkansas.

Everyone says 2 1/4 teaspoons, but anything from 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 works. I typically only use 1 3/4 teaspoon.

I had 2 1/4 teaspoons in a package now it says 2 1/2. Which is the correct amount of yeast for pretzels

on the average there's is aproximately 2 tsp in a package of dry yeast...I have found a few that actually have 2 and 1/4 tsp but that is more or less a 50:50 occurance....Mary (Magicsmom) from Tennessee

PS: If you're using a Bread Machine you could use the following guide lines;
for one pound loaf use 1tsp
for one and half use 1 1/2 tsp
and for a two pound loaf use 1 and 3/4 tsp
of the bulk yeast ....when I decide not to use my Bread Machine I use the above formulas and my loafs actually turn out really nice.

"A 1/4 -ounce packet of active dry yeast contains approximately 2-1/2 teaspoons; the measurement will not be exact as yeast is packaged according to weight rather than volume. A packet of yeast is sufficient to raise 4 cups, approximately 1-pound, of flour." From the Red Star Yeast website

I have found that the two and a half tsp is fine - give or take an amount of yeast in a recipe does not affect the rising; I make 4 loaves of wheat bread at once and I use about 7 tsp yeast - give or take. Seems fine always.
