Has anyone tried this?


I was reading an article in the recent edition of Pizza Today magazine in which the author of the article mentioned using the same yeast as would be used to make lager beer. The idea being that it was suitable for cold fermentation of the dough (because lager beer is cold fermented).

So, has anyone tried using this type of yeast? Or perhaps another 'beer' yeast?

Thanks,

Tory

I read the same article and was intrigued. I'm not even sure what type of yeast it is, but I'd love to give it a shot.

I went to a local supply shop for home brewers and I told them what I was doing and wanted 'lager' yeast. He walked over to a cabinet and pulled out a packet of yeast and told me it is for lager.

I bought it and will give it a try. Then I'll let you know.

I've heard of places that use brewers yeast. I personally tried Champaign yeast once. It worked but I didn't notice much of a difference.

Chuck, thanks for your reply. :)

I spoke with a friend of mine who has a couple years of home brewing experience. She told me that the yeast used for beer is more potent than yeast used for wine or baking, but I don't know how that compares to the yeast used for champaign. But since I've bought some lager yeast, I'm going to give it a shot to see what happens.

So if yeast is a natural fungus that turns grain into beer, why is the addition of processed yeast necessary? I thought it was a natural process. Or is it an accelerant? Anyway, here's a link that states that brewer's yeast and baker's yeast are not interchangeable. Do you have more information about the issue, title, or page number of the article in Pizza mag? http://www.livestrong.com/article/418496-what-is-the-difference-between-brewers-yeast-bakers-yeast/

Beer lager yeast comes in different forms, both Liquid and dry (powder).....you have a bigger choice in the liquid form of beer yeast...not so much in the dry..and you also have ale yeast, there are quite a variety in the dry form, and more in the liquid form..but that is interesting....if anyone is going to try this....let the rest of us know.
