    The source below says 1 teaspoon of active dry yeast weighs 2.83 grams.

    (10 g) / (2.83 g/tsp) x (1 tbsp / 3 tsp) = 1.17 tbsp (or 1 tbsp plus 1/2 tsp)

    t tablespoon = 15 mL, NOT 15 grams

    You are converting weight, grams to volume, tablespoons. And to do that you need the density of the material.

    online search, I find.

    density of instant yeast of 0.1 oz, or 3.4 g per teaspoon

    1 tsp would weigh 3.1 grams or 1/2 tsp would be 1.55 grams.

    so on average, 3.3 g / teaspoon

    15 g x 1 teasp/3.3g = 4.5 teasp, or 1 1/2 tablespoon.

    Fresh or dried yeast? Because a teaspoonful of dried is around 7 grams, so maybe 1/2 a Tablespoonful would be around 10 grams?

    use two teaspoons instead (3 teaspoons = 1 table spoon = about 15 grams)
