Steve, I had a package of yeast expand so tight that I thought it would
explode. I sterilized a needle over a flame and made a tiny prick at
the top of the yeast package. I stored the package in the frige so that
nothing came in contact with the perforation. I used the yeast (the
same day) and saw no sign of infection.
