Find a local home brew shop where you live. They can help you with whatever needs & questions you may have. But their are dry & liquid yeasts,depending on what style of beer you want to make.

There is no yeast available in the UK that will make alcohol. You are out of luck. Do your homework and get to bed.

Many strains of yeast will do this for you. I'd stay away from Candida, though.
