Too much yeast - dough disaster looms

I need some advice. I was making bread earlier and added yeast twice (doorbell and phone....). Now what? The dough is rising at an alarming rate and has already overgrown the bowl, tipping itself out onto the counter like some puffy, yeast driven alien.

Can this be salvaged?
Will an extra rise help?
Any ideas?

Deflate dough. Put half in a second bowl and refrigerate. Add 1/2 of original recipe's flour and water to the remaining outside the fridge dough ; then knead rise / rest and bake according to your recipe. Make another batch tomorrow using the refrigerated dough supplemented with water and flour as done with the previous days dough. You may find the second batch to be tastier than the first.

I have already divided dough and half is in fridge. Unfortunately I have a limited amount of flour on hand and so can't really add enough to the dinner loaf (for tonight) to make a big difference. Will an extra rise help this situation?

Janet anytime I've had an over-rise I just punch it down and let it rise again. I love a slow rise bread, you will get better flavor. I put it in a cool room and let it do it's thing, almost like a mild sourdoug flavor. I'd not worry about extra flour if you don't have it maybe just a little but over risen dough for me get's the punch down and then I cross my fingers

Yeah, that what I'd say too. The only problem you might get the yeasty (is it a word?) taste in the end, but I am not even really sure about that.

The bread is in the oven. It had an extra rise, made into a nice loaf, but in the oven it turned all alien again.

The loaf is split badly and sort of looks like a bread autopsy. Maybe it'll taste good....

But I think pictures would help immensely in the postmortem as we dissect the alien creature. We might even learn something.
