Two main types of yeast are used for making beer: one ferments at the top of the brew (top-fermenting yeast), and the other ferments at the bottom (bottom-fermenting yeast). Brewer's yeast may be gathered from the lees of the previous brew, or it may be purchased in dry or liquid form.

A dietary supplement that consists of inactivated yeast cells that are rich in thiamin (vitamin B1). Brewer's yeast is often added to food that has been frozen and then thawed, since the freezing process tends to destroy much of the thiamin present in foods. Brewer's yeast supplement is available at health food stores, and should not be confused with active brewer's yeast that is used in the making of alcoholic beverages. For more information on storing and freezing food, see the Food and Feeding page.

It is not to be used for making bread.
