I just bought a big pack of active dry yeast, 2 lbs.. now I'm wondering how to store them, should I freeze them or just let them in my pantry?

Tina bought a pound of active dry yeast Nov. 2012, and it had an expire date of Dec. 2013.
I keep it in the refrigerator, and I am still using it. It is still active, and no problems with raising pizza or bread dough. I used it yesterday, and the dough for the pizza doubled in size in 30 minutes.
I had to keep poking it to keep it in the bowl.

Hi guys. I'm back for a minute. We finally sold our house and are moving to Whiting, NJ. It is a 55+ community and we are scared but also looking forward to the move. Our families are ecstatic. It's only an hour and a half to Long Island. We have to be out of our house by June 6. A lot of crap to do but I promise when we get settled, I will be here more.
And I store my yeast in the freezer and it is good for years, literally.

Stephen! Thanks for stopping by.

We moved to The Villages, FL a year and a half ago. It also is a 55+ Active Adult Community. Believe me when I say, you are going to LOVE it. There are so many activities geared for mature adults. You can have kids or grandkids visit, yet you do not have to put up with the antics of someone else's rude and unruly children on a regular basis. I do NOT miss the nasty language being screamed outside at night, nor the 'thump*thump*thump' of a car or truck radio as I sit at a traffic signal.

Yes, there are some slow people, but they usually have a smile on their face and actually make eye contact when they say, "good morning"!

Great to hear from you Jetfan27....
Great Area to move to......near Toms River..; Close to I-95 or the GSP to flip over to the LIE... Great!
You will adjust, and although back to the Fast pace, it is only mildly faster than the NY area, but I'm sure you are used to that! LOL

God Bless, and lots of luck to you and yours.

Jimmy!

Yeah!.... I'll cook....and you bake the bread.

The closest good Italian seeded twisted bread we can get, is at Anthony & Sons bakery in Denville, NJ....1/2 hr. east of me.
They were a bakery that started in Paterson, NJ years ago; then they moved there huge operation to Denville.
They supply restaurants with their breads and rolls. Smile 

We have no good bakeries in this area. Panera's is where everyone goes.
I can't eat their bread without tearing my gums it is so tough and rubbery.
Sometimes you may get a halfway decent loaf, but that is if they let it proof properly and bring it up to room temp before baking. They got kids baking, and all they do is pull out the frozen loaves and stick them in the ovens way to quickly before they are even thawed fully.....  Evil or Very Mad 

As you know, that is Not Good!

I will bake the bread. My aunt used to live in Denville at the assisted living at that big Catholic monestary. Just outside of town.
