why will the same yeast in a different situation make eather yeast or CO2,
such as in beer making. 
  Ie. you mix the  yeast in a carboy to ferment it. Then once it has 
stopped you mix in more yeast and sugar then bottle it to produce the 
carbanate it

 ( I have grade 12 chem, but i'm lacking in the bio. so please dont to go 
too indepth with the anser. I'm just a cuious person )

 thanks to who ever ansers.
