Where to find brewer's yeast

I'm looking to make my own carbonated drinks using brewer's yeast. I don't think this type of yeast is available in regular grocery stores. Does anyone know where I can find some?

  1. Active brewers's yeast can be bought at wine and beer making supply stores. The also sell it at Milano in cake form. As for making carbonated drinks, I thought champagne yeast was what you were supposed to use.

    1. Seen it at Tao.

        Was it active brewers yeast or the kind used as nutritional supplement?

          Oh boy you got me there... I could swear it said brewers but now I have some doubts.

      2. I'm not sure it will work but yeast for making beer can be found at Cachette du Bootlegger in Baie-d'Urfé or Choppe à Barrock in the Plateau.
