is the agent for fermentation. It is a tiny growing plant that consumes sugar and converts it to alcohol and carbon dioxide. The action of the yeast continues until all of the sugars in the mash have been converted to alcohol. Distillers and brewers usually use cultured yeast, meaning that they grow their own yeast from a pedigreed strain.
