Storing Yeast Dough – The Best Tips

How to properly store yeast dough

  • If you want to process the yeast dough within 24 hours, you can simply store it in the fridge. Place the dough in a tightly sealable container. This should be big enough for the dough to rise.
  • If you want to store the prepared dough longer, you should freeze it. Put the yeast dough in a bag and seal it with a rubber band. Again, make sure that the yeast dough has enough space in the bag to rise. If you dust the dough with some flour beforehand, it will not stick to the bag.
  • At minus 18 degrees Celsius, the dough can be kept for up to six months. Take the yeast dough out of the freezer a few hours before you plan to use it, as frozen yeast dough takes twice as long to rise as fresh dough.
