I did that with a pizza dough once. The yeast was past it's due date, so I added two instead of one. I felt like Lucille Ball (I love Lucy) when she put in too much yeast and it blew the door off the oven.

Let us know how the second half of the batch comes out. Prior to baking, you may want to slash it more deeply than the first half of the batch.

I feel an episode of "I Love Lucy" coming on here. LOL TOO MUCH YEAST!

Oh man, I don't know what to expect now but the visions of that old I Love Lucy show is coming into my head when she puts too much yeast and the bread gets so big that the oven door opens while baking. LOL

I'm making crusty Italian bread with roasted garlic. I put 3 cups of flour but really mis-read the yeast. I put 2.5 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons of yeast. I've punched it down 2x already. My kitchen smells wonderful, but I might just die laughing and drowning in tears come time to bake.

Next time you, or anyone else, does something like that, King Arthur Flour has a free hotline for baking problems/questions
