      In addition, bread yeast will produce more undesirable compounds
      (flavors) than yeast specifically selected for fermentation.

      > Ordinary bread yeast will work for booze making but it won't
      survive very long once your alc level reaches @ 8%, while yeasts used
      specifically for brewing your own booze will reach 10 to 18 % alc. or
      higher depending on what you use. Most people go for the higher
      yielding yeasts as you will get more "product" per litre of wash with
      the alc. yeasts as compared to bread yeast.
