Good Morning Baker’s,

I am back, only this time wanting to try some old Rye Bread. I am open to suggestions and recipes. I am looking for something that is easy and not complicated. I can even try using my bread machine to mix and then bake in the oven. I have found a recipe or two and they call for 1 square inch of bakers yeast and the other recipe calls for 2 oz of bakers yeast. I would like to know how to convert bakers yeast to the saf instant yeast or the regular yeast? Or, maybe the regular would be better in making Rye Bread?

I am open to suggestions.
Stumped.

My recipe calls for “1 inch square of bakers yeast” so would that mean I should use either 2 teaspoons of instant or 2 1/2 teasponns of active dry yeast? 

And, for my other recipe that calls for 2 oz of cake yeast I should use 5 1/3 rapid yeast or how much of the regular dry active yeast should I be using?

Are my calculations correct?

Thanks!
