Yeah I think I'll try the spent grain next time.

I wasn't trying to be cheap or anything with the beer yeast, we actually have some bread yeast in the pantry. I was just trying out an experiment...don't know what it was really but it just tasted off and the smell was horrible.

Guess I'll just stick with the right yeast for the right job now

If you look, you'll find recipes for bread that use spent grains.
If their not different from bread yeast, what makes them different?

Here is a Recipe for Treberbrot, and you can just search for it and a bunch of threads come up with baking ideas. Not really using brewers yeast but spent grains and whatnot.


Cheers

Well, they are not different from most strains of top fermenting ale yeast, they do differ from lager, wheat, speciality strains. The difference is that the bread doesn't offer enough sugar to create alcohol, they just give off CO2 which allows the bread to rise.

yes but if I pitch a packet of bread yeast on my beer it will taste like ass. There has to be a large difference in the strains.

Are you sure your bread yeast is saccharomyces cerecisiae? They are a little different, you are right. It's kind of like, I'm from Bulgaria, you're from America, we are both homosapiens, but at the same time we are different. One species has evolved into an alcohol producer, while the other work better with bread. However there are beers made with bread yeast, such as Kvass or Sahti, and they are not bad.
