Because most yeast strains cannot withstand the drying process.
I believe the CIA has included the drying process in its manual of "advanced interrogation techniques" . . . .

Sorry for the completely off-topic, gratuitous remark. From what I've read, it is a technology issue, as you said Finger - we haven't developed the methods/technology to dry most yeast strains without harming or killing the yeast.
