Better yet: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (I pronounce it: 'beer yeast').

Thanks Pchef. I got the first word right and then just used the spanish word for beer for the second. Now I know.

I was once told Di-ASS-e-til is the substance, Di-A-Cee-Til is the quality.

As in "I skipped the Di-ASS-e-til rest, so my beer has a pronounced Di-A-Cee-Til taste."

One word I apparently was mis-pronouncing is Willamette. I went to a 'beer bar' and the bartender seemed to be pretty well informed and told me it's easy to remember how to pronounce it; It's Will-ammit, dammit. Say it so they rhyme. I was saying it like a french word.
