I use a bread machine for all my bread and pizza dough (I don’t get pleasure from kneading). I use SAF-instant dry yeast.

This morning I realized that I needed bread for lunch and I was too late to start regular bread. My bread machine cookbook has a recipe, for example, that uses 5.6g Active Dry yeast OR 7.5g Rapid Dry yeast which uses the "Regular" and "Quick" cycles on the bread machine.

Is there a substitution I could make using differing volumes of Instant Dry yeast which would get me the same results?

2 1/4 tsp. of active dry yeast = 1 1/2 tsp. instant yeast according to a yeast conversion chart that I use.
