Thursday Quote Du Jour #12: How you spin it makes all the difference in the world

by Janie Jones

Leif has been reading up on making beer.  There’s some interesting chemistry going on, so while I’m not much of a beer drinker, learning about the process is interesting from a scientifically clinical point of view.

I don’t remember how the conversation began but Leif said the following, which, while hysterical and may make you think twice, is totally true:

So, basically yeast eats sugar, poops alcohol and farts CO2.  So, sparkling wine?  Basically yeast poop and farts.

Yumm!  I so totally want to go spend $100+ on some fancy French yeast poop and fart Champagne.

Not being much of an alcoholic beverage drinking gal was sounding pretty good right about then.  Until that is, it occurred to me that yeast farts are what make bread rise.  Damn tasty yeast farts.
