Default best place to buy fresh yeast?

My local brew store only has the tinfoil packages of yeast that is most definitely not fresh, and I am trying to brew a batch using only fresh ingredients.. Where would be my best bet to pick up some yeast? Is there a specific type of yeast that I need, that I could ask the local health food store if they have some?

You need the kind of yeast they sell at the homebrew shop.

ok but notice how this stuff comes to you inside plastic, inside plastic, inside more plastic? Even the stuff in glass, it stlll can't be fresh coming from online.. So I guess, maybe I should phrase it, where can I get local yeast? ....All I am asking, is where would a homebrewer get some yeast if he didnt have a brewstore around him that sold packaged yeast and he didn't have access to the internet.. There's got to be somewhere that sells fresh yeast in a store..

find a peice of fermenting fruit from under an apple/fruit free. wild yeast is everywhere.. you prolly have some on your body right now!!!

edit: actually most fruit have yeast on the outside of it.. you dont even need a rotting peice.. apples are well known for having yeast on them!!

Brewer's yeast is a pretty specific type of yeast. You could get it from a local microbrewery, but that's pretty much your only other option.

so when local breweries brew their batches, where do they get their yeast? I wish my market had some... so wheres the place to get the best yeast? Northern Brewer?

And if I went the direction of purchasing a non pasteurized local beer, what would I do with? Extract the yeast?
