I hear over in Europe eating the stuff out of baby diapers is a delicacy, but I'll be damned if I try it.

My dutch grandfather ate a spoonful of yeast every morning with his buttermilk. I know it's popular to say it now, but believe me, he was the man.

They make brewers yeast smoothies. The hipsters in Cali love them.

Vegemite and marmite are made from autolyzed brewer's yeast. We consider autolysis to be one of the worst things that can happen to beer, they consider it one of the best things that can happen to toast. Ick.

It's almost definitely the hops that made it so bitter. When brewer's yeast is eaten, it's just the brewer's yeast, without all the other crap that ends up in trub.

That sounds revolting. Or do they just add a bit to smoothies for nutritional benefits, the way many places allow you to add protein powder? That might not be so bad. Though it wouldn't exactly be good, either.

Vegemite? North America's loss. You will either love or hate it.. I understand the love (I personally love it!) dont understand the hate.

Marmite is brilliant! I'm one of the few non British people that really like it. Surprisingly most of the other foreigners that I know like it are French!

I have had the shot glass of yeast at the DeKoninck brewery.
Love the beer, not a fan of the yeast shot.
