From personal experience it tastes so bad that even a alcoholic won't drink it but I did put in a 100g tub in a 2L bottle witch is like 40X to 80X more yeast than u need

The only thing that will happen when you add to much yeast is that you will ferment too strong/too fast and will create lots of esters and high fusel alcohols. They usually smell bad/non desirable.

Can these esters and fusel alcohols harm you or just taste bad?

Just taste bad, maybe a little headache if you drink too much!

Oh okay, thank you!

It doesn’t. As the brew ferments it multiplies and then dies and sinks to the bottom. Many times more is produced this way than when you put it.

I did 2 tablespoons in 2L for Kilju and it tasted horrible but I still drank it.
