I also buy my yeast at Costco in a bulk bag. I fill an old jar of
yeast that I bought at the grocery store for my all the time use, and I
keep the rest of the yeast in the freezer. In the past, I found that
if if you keep the yeast too long just in the cupboard, it loses it’s
potency. The freezer preserves it from deteriorating. Just remember
to let it warm to room temp before tryinng to use it.
I also keep my cornmeal in the freezer. IT will get inhabitants
quickly if you don’t!
