Compensating for different flour Protein Percentages

Is there a formula for switching flours with different protein percentage?


 


For example, I was using KA flour, and needed to get a quick supply, so I went to Sams Club,


and their bread flour is only 10% (only rose to 1/2 of what it should have); what is the best way to


compensate for this (more yeast, how much? More Vital Wheat Gluten, how much?)


 


Thanks in advance!
