Default bread yeast

ok, this is going to be bad...

i was proofing my yeast in a bowl, waiting for my wort to cool when my wife came into the kitchen. she saw the slimey brown gook in the bowl and thought it was leftovers from a bowl of shredded wheat. she poured it down the sink.

so there i was, with wort and no yeast, and the only brewery supply store 40 miles away.

so i did the best i could do -- i added in fleischman's bread yeast insted. the beer is currently fermenting but at a slower rate than usual.

so what is this beer going to taste like? is it ruined?

at the very least, i've added an experimental brew to the history of home brewing.

Aigh.

Buy an extra pack or two of a fairly generic dry yeast and keep it in the fridge. I have a feeling you are going to have one nasty-tasting beer, but all you can do now is ride it out and see what you've got.

If you have a mutt vs. a greyhound, who wins the race? Bread yeast and ale yeast are the same sort of comparison. Thirty years ago, it was quite common for people to brew with bread yeast. Dried ale yeast is cheap and keeps for years in the fridge.

SWMBO...their neverending desire to clean up, even when your in the middle of something. Putting stir-spoons in the dishwasher, pouring out pans of "water", etc.

I have to brew when SWMBO is not home...if she is home and I can't avoid it I shut the dog gate btw rooms and ban her from the kitchen.

See, I use the baby gate, but that's to keep the kidling and puppy dog at bay (and away from three gallons of boiling wort!)

My wife has been great about this, she usually takes the kidling and heads out of the house for a few hours when I'm brewing. Of course, she's usually shopping or something, but at least I don't have my daughter - who I love dearly - crying to be picked up by Daddy when I'm trying to prevent a boilover. She also trusts me enough to pick up when I'm done (and she hates cleaning the kitchen herself), so she's never tried to dispose of things that are lying around the kitchen.

Yeah, definitely come back to us on this one. I actually tried the reverse. I wanted to see what bread made with beer yeast would taste like. I used the cake off of a hefe I had just racked. Unfortunately the beer ended up being contaminated so obviously the cake was nasty smelling and the bread dough was nasty. Didn't even bake it... ha!
