This is dehydrated trub, probably from brewing alcohol for distillation. The yeast is very unlikely to be viable and is probably not of a strain you want any ways. It is used as an all natural dietary supplement as was noted earlier. It may not provide anything different than a pill but I feel the processing to produce that pill removes something. I don't buy brewers yeast and if I did want to I would dry my own.
