2 1/2 teaspoons = 1 pkg. instant dry yeast, however, when making bread and baking in oven extra yeast will not hurt. It will however, rise bread faster than the usual amount.

Baking in bread machine the amount of yeast used will be "very" important or bread will fall during the baking cycle.

Longer it takes for bread to rise better the flavor and texture.

Check out the YEAST MATH & CONVERSIONS I posted below.

SAFF yeast is a little more powerful and for 1 teaspoon other dry yeast use 3/4 teaspoon of SAFF. Or can use same amount and keep watch on the dough as usual.

Somewhere below or above I posted an article from SAFF, not sure which one it is now.
