We here in South Africa have a powdered "instant" yeast which you 
just add with your dry ingredients, no need to mix with warm water 
and sugar first.  It's so easy to use,  comes in sachets and weighs next to nothing, 
has a virtually indefinite shelf life and takes up very little space.

If you don't have any where u are, let me know and we'll organise
