Beer yeast and wine yeast are used to convert sugar into alcohol and, in the case of beer and champagne, bubbles.
Brewer's yeast and nutritional yeast, for example, are sold as nutritional supplements, and Australians are fond of yeast extracts--like Vegemite, Marmite, and Promite--which they spread like peanut butter on bread.
Nutritional yeast is very similar to brewer's yeast, which is also used as a nutritional supplement and is made from the same strain of yeast.

 Vaginal Yeast Infection
Vaginal yeast infections are the second most common cause of vaginal discharge in the United States (the first is Bacterial Vaginosis).
Yeast infection is not considered a sexually transmitted disease, but is included here because it is such a common cause of vaginal discharge.
Yeast infections are not considered sexually transmitted, and therefore sexually partners do not need treatment (though it is interesting to note that 1 in 5 men whose partners had a yeast infection were found to have microscopic yeast present in their urethras).

 Yeast - Joyofbaking.com
Yeast, on the other hand, is a living organism and the carbon dioxide it produces is the result of the yeast feeding on the dough.
To activate yeast the first step is called proofing and is a way to test the yeast to make sure it is alive and still active.
Note: If the dry yeast is added directly to the flour, the liquid that is added is warmer than usual because the whole mass of dry ingredients, as opposed to just the yeast, must be warmed in order to activate the yeast.

 Bottom-fermenting Yeast Encyclopedia Article @ FreshBrewed.com (Fresh Brewed)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Nonetheless, for both types, yeast is fully distributed through the beer while it is fermenting, and both equally flocculate (clump together and precipitate to the bottom of the vessel) when it is finished.
By no means all top-fermenting yeasts demonstrate this behaviour, but it features strongly in many English ale yeasts which may also exhibit chain forming (the failure of budded cells to break from the mother cell) which is technically different from true 'flocculation'.
Bottom-fermenting yeast, Saccharomyces uvarum, ferments at quite cool temperatures, 7-12°C, and will continue to affect the beer while it is conditioning at temperatures as low as 0°C. It also tends to ferment "cleanly", with relatively less production of esters and other by-products, and is thus in part responsible for the "crisper" character of lagers.

most of us treat a yeast infection by running to the drugstore, handing $20 to our corporate masters, and walking around miserable for days with disgusting slime dribbling down between our legs, not even sure if what we have is really a yeast infection.
then, next time you get a yeast infection, you've got a crotch full of drug -resistant yeast, and you can't just run to the pharmacy and shell out $20 for a cure; you have to go to a doctor and get something much stronger.

 YEAST   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Lager yeasts have two sub-groups: Frohberg, or powdery yeasts (Staubhefen), that fail to clump and remain in suspension in the wort; and Saaz or break yeasts (Bruchhefen) that flocculate readily to the bottom of the fermenter 2E Frohberg yeasts are strong attenuators and ferment isomaltose as well as maltose.
As S. uvarum is related to certain yeasts used in the wines that were made in Munich in those days, it is likely that their "contamination" of beers, combined with the cold-conditioning, resulted in their becoming dominant in the Munich beer yeast strains.
During this stage the yeast is actively fermenting the malt sugars to alcohol and carbon dioxide.

 Functions of Yeast in the Breadmaking Process  There are three main functions of yeast in dough   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Thus a 0.5% yeast addition to a test dough produced an 88% increase in cell count after 6 hr of fermentation, while with a 2% original yeast level the corresponding increase in cell numbers was only 29%.
In yeasted doughs, an increase in maltose occurs during the first stages of fermentation, until the initial supply of glucose and fructose is exhausted, after which the maltose content gradually declines.
Yeast exhibits a considerable tolerance to extremes of pH, being able to maintain an active fermentation in a 5% glucose solution in the pH range of 2.4 to 7.4, but ceasing activity at pH 2.0 or pH 8.0.

 yeast - Allrecipes
Yeast is a living, microscopic, single-cell organism that, as it grows, converts its food (through a process known as fermentation) into alcohol and carbon dioxide.
To multiply and grow, all yeast needs is the right environment, which includes moisture, food (in the form of sugar or starch) and a warm, nurturing temperature (70° to 85°F is best).
Wild yeast spores are constantly floating in the air and landing on uncovered foods and liquids.

During the same time period, I was testing the culture media of a large number of different yeast and bacteria strains from the human gastrointestinal tract in order to find out which compounds in the human might be derived from the yeast and bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.
The compound that led to the discovery of yeast as the source of many of these compounds in the urine of autistic children was tartaric acid.

It is important to remember that the yeast overgrowth is throughout your whole system, and you want to restore a healthy balance between the yeast and the healthful bacteria.
However with a yeast overgrowth, the yeast overpopulates our systems and we have what we call a "yeast infection." This overgrowth can be on your nipples and in your milk ducts in your breasts, as well as in your baby's mouth and gastro-intestinal tract.

Other symptoms that may be yeast connected include a craving for sugar, alcohol, or bread; digestive problems; fatigue; depression; and muscle or joint pains.
In addition, Candida growth in saliva is enhanced and the adhesive property of the yeast to oral tissue is increased by a high carbohydrate diet.

As with all yeast cultures, dry or liquid, the yeast should be taken out of the refrigerator (where ALL yeast should be stored), allowed to warm up to room temperature, and then mixed into a starter solution a day or so before being pitched.
