    Brewer's yeast

    Is it any good or not?

    I just bought some out of curiosity (this one is made from beats)

    I love how it tastes sprinkled over meat and rice, tastes like farofa (a Brazilian grain-based condiment). Most likely because of all the glutamic acid in it (MSG but natural).

    If it's the same thing as nutritional yeast, I love the stuff! I add it to scrambled eggs, baked potatoes, sprinkle it on veggies, and mix it with olive oil to roast brussels sprouts.

    I'd say after a liter of hefeweizen tonight, brewer's yeast is good stuff.

    It won't help you out if you have a candida infection though.

    I would also say, the best brewer's yeast to get is FROM a brewer, I usually have about 3-4 pounds to toss out once I'm moving a batch of beer from primary to secondary. I can only eat so much (seriously, it goes waaaaay through you.), so I'd be down with sharing. I bet other brewers would be willing to do the same.

    I used to do this when I had colitis-



    It has a ton of B and lots of minerals, just right for a mucked up digestive system. Very effective.

    I think the candida problem depends on how the yeast was grown. The brand I use (NOW brand) says this on the label:

    ozNOW pleasant tasting Nutritional Yeast Flakes are produced from a specially selected strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This yeast is grown on enriched purified cane and beet molasses under carefully controlled conditions. This is a primary grown yeast and is therefore NOT a brewery by-product as is brewer's yeast. This ensures freedom from Candida albicans yeast.

    Do you dry it, or use it in a somewhat liquid form? Just wondering because when I make cider I tip all of mine down the sink.

    How much is too much? I'm really liking this thing, I put it all over my meat and rice.
