Default how big a screwup- over fermination

Just curious, has anyone ever dumped twice the amount of yeast into a batch of kit wine. What should i expect? Any possible corrections. thanks

It won't make any difference, other than a slightly faster start.

Thanks for the information, will the fermentation be shorter?

Probably not. It might take off faster, but will probably still take the same amount of time.
