    FROM A COOKING SITE-

    How much is in a package of dry yeast?
    Our bread machine recipes call for a package of dry yeast. Here in Canada, yeast is sold in individual packets, with yeast pre-measured to make 1 loaf of bread. Yeast is also available (and is less expensive) in bulk packages. For the type of yeast I use, 2 1/4 teaspoons is equivalent to a package. However, brands and types of yeast vary, so for best results, consult your yeast package, it will probably indicate the package equivalent or amount of yeast to use for a standard loaf of bread. Or refer to your bread machine manual for the recommended amount of yeast to use in your machine.

    Per Alliea:
    1 Tablespoon = 3 teaspoons

    Slightly over the amount will Not hurt your recipe at all.
    Since 1 package is generally 2 1/4 teaspoon.
    I yeast bake all the time and generally use a very scant Tablespoon or closer to 2 1/2 teaspoons since I always buy my yeast in bulk.
