I dont know if this has been done, but is anyone up to making a swap type beer using bread yeast?

I think it could be neat thing to do.

Kick EvilTOJ in the nuts if this is just silly.

Kick me in the nuts eh? Well we'll just see who has the last laugh when you can't log into chat anymore, Mr. Flynn (if that is your REAL name)

Had 2 beers at our last local meeting, made with bread yeast, they weren't too shabby. *shrug*

OK - I have to ask. Why would you want to do this??? With so many amazing yeast strains made FOR beer - why try something NOT made for beer.

Just curious - making a brew takes time and I would prefer to use that time for making an awesome beer.

For the challenge and the experimentation, of course. There was an interesting thread a while back for a grocery-only brewing challenge, to see what could be brewed using ingredients available in your local grocery store.

Mike- this would be an interesting challenge, and I seem to remember an episode of Basic Brewing Radio where they were baking with beer yeast and brewing with bread yeast....

I wonder what would happen to bread yeast after several hundred generations of being fed on wort.

Not really "to" any certain style, I'd say taste of an American Blonde, color of a brown ale.

scinerd3000-

In meads, I think it's the high alcohol levels that causes the bread yeast to poop out early. I'd say to make a quaffable balanced beer with bread yeast, you'd have to keep it to a low gravity beer like a mild.
