Fresh Yeast in San Diego
This is actually a request from my mother, who's looking for fresh yeast (not dried). Apparently, she remembers eating it as a child, spreading it on graham crackers!
She's looked at Henry's, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, and Bristol Farms. The latter apparently does carry it, but only in the fall months.
Looking it up online, it appears Fleischmann's is one producer.
Any help is appreciated. Anyplace in San Diego county is doable for her.
She could try culturing her own wild yeast. I'm not sure how the quality is here in San Diego but it's certainly an option.
Would brewer's yeast from one of the many breweries (or the Home Brew Mart at Ballast Point) provide the type of yeast she's looking for?
I've pointed her toward this board for all of your suggestions -- thanks! I'll let you know if she finds something.
