What Kind Of Yeast Do You Use In Your Bread Machine?

Was wondering what is the best yeast to use in the bread machine? I was using the one pound packages from Sam's but no one is going there anymore. Since I have not been baking enough to use it up seems like it is losing its power once it reaches its expiration date even refrigerated.
I did buy Fleichmann's Bread Machine Yeast to try. Does anyone else use this method?

If you mean the yeast in the brown jar I use it too, as well as packets, or even in bulk from the health foods store. Try freezing the yeast too. Just bring it to room temp before using it.

I haven't tried the little blocks of wet yeast in a bread machine. I know they work for regular bread making.

I use dried yeast in a large packet. I store it in the freezer in a plastic screw top container. It lasts for ages.

I use the dried yeast (the kind that looks like little pellets). I buy it at the bulk store and keep it in a jar in the fridge.

I keep my yeast all in the freezer and it does keep much longer than the date that way. I usually use Fleischmann's Breadmachine Yeast, but have used Red Star also. Both work well. I have also used the 1 lb. plag from Sam's that Sueanne mentioned, but I keep it in the freezer also.

Cat Lover....When you keep the yeast in the freezer is it still easy to scoop out of the package? The commercial yeast at Sams was a great bargain for a one pound package.

That looks good, what kind of bread is it?

Yes, the yeast stays in the same form; I guess it is just the freezing that makes it last longer, otherwise than being cold you'd ever know it had been in the freezer!
