Which yeast is used to make bread?

Baker's yeast is the common name for the strains of yeast commonly used as a leavening agent in baking bread and bakery products, where it converts the fermentable sugars present in the dough into carbon dioxide and ethanol.

What happens when you put too much yeast in bread?

If you add more yeast to a bread dough, the dough will rise faster. However, several negative things can happen if you add too much yeast. The dough may rise too quickly and produce too much gluten. When this happens, the dough may collapse -- similar to a balloon bursting when it's filled with too much air.
