Where to find brewer's yeast

Eating this order Jun 14, 2012 02:10 PM

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?

    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.

        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.

        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.
