The trick to freezing those 1 and 2 lb bulk packages of yeast is 
freezing.  Remove just enough for a few weeks of baking and place in 
a tightly sealed, small jar (something the size of a baby food jar).  
Then seal up the original package well, place in a ziplock bag and 
place in the freezer.  You'll find that it will last at least one 
year that way!  Air and heat are yeast's enemies so always keep it 
tightly sealed and cool (and dry).
