Default where to buy brewers yeast

Thanks !!

p.s. I just thought that Brewers yeast would last longer because of its
higher tolerance to alcohol ...
the batch of bakers yeast I just started is giving off quite a bit of
CO2, so clearly it is working.

Where can I buy 'live' brewers yeast for a CO2 incubator? Whole Foods
sells brewers yeast, but it's dead.


I'd skip the brewers yeast and just use a much cheaper bakers yeast
available at your local market (Krogers, Wal-Mart, etc.). A 4oz jar will
last a long time. Brewers will generate more co2 in total, but it will do
so much more quickly and you'll be mixing a new batch more often.
