Costco - Red Star Active Dry Yeast 2 lb vacuum pack for $3.99.

I used to buy Fleischmann's Active yeast from Bulk Barn at $14.09/kg ($6.4/lb). Costco has Red Star Active Dry Yeast 2 lb vacuum pack for $3.99 ($2/lb). Is the Red Star yeast same as Fleischmann's ? (i.e. 1 tsp Fleischmann's yeast = 1 tsp Red Star yeast?)

Redstar is what Ruhlman uses to test his recipes. www.ruhlman.com
He usually recommends 1t per batch of 4c flour. I usually go 50% more.
