Okay, I did a little research, and I found out that we are all right.  There are two items called Brewer's yeast.  One of them is the live yeast you use for brewing beer.  The other is obtained from the brewing process where the yeast is dried and killed and used as nutritional yeast.

I'm attaching a picture of the brewer's yeast I used once.  It says it's a "high potency instant nutritional yeast".  It tasted identical to the nutritional yeast I normally use. 

Hope that clears up some confusion.  Just make sure you get the kind you eat.

it might be a regional thing. from what i know they are different, with brewers being "active" (aka add warmth, water and some sugar..) and you can use it to make beer or whatnot and "nutritional" being inactive.

perhaps brewers yeast has some nutritional properties, but from what i find online they are different.  ???

my brewers yeast flakes definitely say "nutritional yeast" on the packaging.

brewers yeast and nutritional yeast are most definitely two different things.  and most definitely not interchangeable.

I think brewer's yeast is the same thing as nutritional yeast.  Well, at least one time I bought a brand that said "brewer's yeast" on the front, and then right below it "nutrional yeast".  It tasted the same, but was in these strange crunchy pellets instead of powder or flakes.  It didn't look or taste anything like yeast you make beer with.

Did you mean nutritional yeast flakes instead of brewer's yeast? I can't imagine that tasting all that good... Can you clarify? I'd like to try it!
