Beer from shards…

If you discovered some 3,000 year-old yeast,  would you use it?   If so,  for what?  Bread?   Israeli scientist had to revitalize six ancient strains of yeast, but once they had accomplished that,  they used it to  brew ancient  types of beers. 

This is the first time that living yeast were actually extracted,  identified and recreated from ancient pottery vessels and may lead to some other useful  —  and enjoyable —  techniques.  L’Chaim!
