I brewed my bread yeast weizen bier 11 days ago. But I think I may have a contamination. As I said, 11 days gone and the CO2 keeps going out. I never had a beer that released CO2 for such a long time. But Some people said to me that bread yeast works very slow.
Is there anybody with any experience with bread yeast?

Did you take a gravity reading?

I have not done a beer with bread yeast but I did do a mead. I started three meads the same night and the one with bread yeast was the slowest. I used D47 and B71 as the other yeasts.

Back before I really started brewing I made a mead with bread yeast. Looks amazing but tastes like rubbing alcohol. I've been saving some in the hopes it'll get better but over 3 years now and still no. I may have screwed something else up but I blame the bread yeast.
