Yeast is a microbe, and it consumes the sugars in the dough. As it does this, it produces gas as a waste product, which inflates the dough and let’s it rise as it essentially fills with air. That’s why bread dough has lots of air pockets in it.

When you give yeast warm water and sugar it comes alright be and produces carbon dioxide which creates bubbles in the dough which causes the dough to rise

It eats the dough and farts out gas, which ends up trapped as bubbles in the dough.

r/breadit is good for this too, as is r/baking.

Carry on.
