    the two most common yeast types available are Instant and Rapid rise.  

    "Fresh Yeast" used to be sold in cubes in the dairy case and I have not seen it in YEARS it is not reliable.  It may still be used in bakeries where they go through a lot of yeast but I am betting most bakeries use Instant yeast. 

    2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast is what is contained in 1 packet of yeast.

    It should give the conversion on the dried yeast pack.

    The granular yeast that comes in flat packets or in jars *is* fresh yeast. 2 1/4 tsp. is what a packet contains.

    Is your yeast in form other than granular?
