This chart is from my bread machine instruction guide. I'm not entirely sure if this will help you any or not.

1tsp. active dry yeast = 3/4tsp. quick-acting yeast
1 1/2tsp. active dry yeast = 1tsp. quick-acting yeast
2 1/4tsp. active dry yeast = 1 1/2tsp. quick-acting yeast
1Tbsp. active dry yeast = 2tsp. quick-acting yeast

Here is the recipe for white bread that is alos in the instruction guide.
1.0lb loaf 1.5lb loaf
water 80F/27C - 3/4C 1C.
oil - 4tsp. 2Tbsp.
sugar - 4tsp. 2Tbsp.
salt - 1tsp. 1 1/2tsp.
bread flour - 2 1/4C. 3C.
active dry yeast - 1 1/2tsp. 2 1/4tsp.
quick-rise yeast - 1tsp. 1 1/2tsp.
bread machine yeast - 1tsp. 1 1/2tsp.

Place ingredients in order listed into bread pan. Place bread pan in bread machine & & set macine to basic baking program & choose crust color(I don't know if yours has this option or not). & press start.

In my bread machine book (I have a Black and Decker bread machine), they say when you are using the instant or quick yeast instead of the bread machine yeast, to use 1/4 tsp more in your recipe.

I always use quick yeast instead of bread machine, and following that guideline of adding 1/4 tsp more, my bread has always turned out perfectly fine.
