Same here, but not for the same reason.
Back in 1993, I was only 20, but wanted to "party". I had the great idea that I could skirt alchohol laws by making my own beer. However, there were no local homebrew shops, and I had NO CLUE what I was doing regardless.
So I looked up some online recipes (Cats Meow?). I realized that everything I needed to make Mead could be bought at the local Grocery, and hardware stores. (ie Honey, bread yeast, spices, 6-gal pale from hardware store). I used 2L soda bottles for bottling.
LOL... wasnt bad actually.
I think that Bread Yeast is the same type of yeast as Ale yeast? But it has simply been designed to benefit bread (ie less alchohol, more co2?).
