But somewhere along the line someone did use yeast to make bread, and alcohol would have been smelled in the process. The Egyptians were making beer thousands of years befor Christ. Yeasts were known to exhibit the fermentation processes. Some smart gut, possibly and Egyptian, must have put two and two together and came up with BEER! Thus the phrase, "Walk like an Egyptian!"..........

I saw a show on this subject, and raised bread was made by someone too lazy to get fresh water, but had some nice beer on hand...

Which makes sense, yeast is more likely to infect a wort than dough.
