"At the grocery store ... they sit in little glass jars there's an empty space on the shelf where they used to sit that has been collecting dust for the last four months.

I could live the rest of my life only eating bread and cheese.

It probably wouldn't be a very long life, but whatever I love bread and cheese.

Also, the best ones live in the air (if you're in a proper part of the country) and will turn your flour into sourdough for free.

Also also, they make beer beer.  And thus are responsible for making vodak magic-water.

And, really, bread is just overcooked beer, and vodak is just salvaged ruined beer.

Bread?  Hell, the true hero is the yeast that helps make beer, eats sugar and shiats out alcohol!

A friend who works at a brewery brings home mis-fills. Some he drinks, some get a trip through his still.

And he grows some pretty amazing weeds too.

I was more than a little disappointed they didn't delve a bit more into the history of the discovery of this little critter and give Louis Pasteur his due.

Saccharomyces Pastorianus is the former name of a particular strain of yeast he isolated for fermenting lager beer.

If you'd bothered to read the article you would have known that was covered too.

Man _that_ is a hookup.

(But I am sure he is running it through his stool for Experimental Fuel Development (*cough*).)

The economics are fascinating... I have a friend who runs a brewery and there's a far more complex function relating beer production economics to "turn the waste into vodak" than I expected.  But, the "work at the brewery and get to take it home" is the best solution to that equation!
