Default cake/dry yeast information request



I have a recipe that calls for 1 pk of cake yeast, I only have dry yeast in a
jar.
I can't get to the store in the next day.
Can I convert the dry yeast into cake yeast? What would be the measurements?
TIA
~Kat

Yes, you can.
The Red Star Yeast site says :
"RED STAR® Active Dry Yeast is available in strips of three 1/4 -ounce
packets and in 4-ounce jars. One 1/4 -ounce packet of active dry yeast is
equal in activity to one 0.6-ounce cake of yeast. Three 1/4 -ounce packets
are equal in activity to one 2-ounce cake of yeast. A 1/4 -ounce packet of
active dry yeast contains approximately 2-1/2 teaspoons; the measurement
will not be exact as yeast is packaged according to weight rather than
volume. A packet of yeast is sufficient to raise 4 cups, approximately
1-pound, of flour"
