I bought my first block of fresh yeast. It cost about $2 and is big enough to make all the bread I could eat if I was to only eat bread for a month. I have shared it among my friends and family, and it is still going. I had read somewhere that fresh yeast only lasts two weeks, but I have had this wonderful item for three weeks now and it is still going strong.
If you like to bake bread, I whole heartedly recommend fresh yeast over dried.
Update : use twice the amount of fresh to dried yeast - both volume and by weight work.
