At the health food store they got something called nutritional yeast, and I need brewer's yeast.

The brewers yeast ive seen looks more round, the nutritoinal yeast i buy is in flakes. I would imagine they are actually different, not just by form.

Several nutritions but especially the B vitamins.

Technically, no.

Brewer's yeast is a by-product of the brewing industry, and is usually brownish and somewhat bitter-tasting.

Nutritional yeast is specifically grown on molasses (usually) with the intent of being used as a supplement. Usually, it also has B12 added to it. Nutritional yeast can come in flake or powder form, tastes somewhat cheesy, and is tasty on popcorn.
