How do you know when your yeast is no longer active?

When making bread that needs yeast, it’s important to make certain that the yeast is active. If you add the yeast to a liquid and it doesn’t start foaming over time, that means that the yeast is no longer active and your bread is not going to raise properly during cooking.
