MJ is right, but remember a teaspoon is a volume measurement and not one of weight.

Five grams, about, of water fits in a teaspoon.

But a teaspoon of feathers will weigh less and one of lead will weigh a lot more.

Translating volume measurements to weight can be tricky. Just keep that in mind.

Here's a handy teaspoon to gram conversion calculator.

And here is a list of lots of other nifty conversion charts that you can bookmark!

I'm with auntdot - you have to know the weight of a given volume of something before you can start converting between volume and weight for that something. A teaspoon of water and a teaspoon of dry yeast do not weight the same - and a teaspoon of dry yeast does not weigh the same as a teaspoon of cake fresh yeast.

For dry yeast (like in those little foil packets or in glass jars) - 1 teaspoon of yeast weighs about 3.1 g.

1 packet of dry yeast weighs 1/4 oz or 7 grams, and contains about 2 1/4 teaspoons. So, if my math still works, 7 grams divided by 2.25 teaspoons = 3.11 grams per teaspoon.

As for the yeast measurement, 1 tsp of fresh yeast weighs .11 oz the same as active dry yeast and instant yeast. Just convet .11 oz to grams and you get 3.12 gms
