Thanks for your replies:

  The concensus seems to be that S. cerevisiae is baker's &
nutritional yeast (since nut. yeast is just a processed form of
baker's yeast) and that brewer's yeast may either be S. carlsbergensis
or S. cerevisiae.

  One person even pointed out that spanish for beer is cervesa - named
after the little bugger, no doubt.

  So does that sound right?  Any dissenting opinions?

  thanks again
