How to Measure Yeast for Poolish Starter


My palm scale has not arrived yet and my current scale only registers to o grams. What is the best way for me to measure 0.36 grams of fresh yeast for the Poolish Starter?

Hi Joe: I recommend you measure out 1 gram on your digital scale and then eyeball-out a little more than a third with a razor or small spatula. Otherwise, I think you could also use a scant 1/8 of teaspoon of the fresh yeast. I think you'll be in the ballpark. Good luck! Send us pics.
