I called the Red Star 800 number to ask that very question. The nice lady
suggested putting half of the yeast in a plastic container and keeping it
in the freezer until I had used up the other half, which should be stored
in the fridge. If I had actually taken her advice, I probably wouldn't
have to throw out the 1/2 cup of yeast that's left from the two-pound
package I bought last year. Live and learn!
