Besides being a little sweet and salty, there's just enough kick from the cayenne pepper so you know it's there while the brewers yeast lends almost a cheesy quality. This kettle corn has a little bit of everything.

Heat the oil in a heavy pot over medium-high heat, about a minute, then add the corn kernels and sugar. Stir the corn kernels and sugar together and cover the pot with a lid. I waited a minute or two before I heard the first kernels start to pop.
Meanwhile, have a large bowl ready with the salt, cayenne pepper and brewers yeast in it.
When the corn starts popping, shake the pot lightly every few seconds and do this until the popping slows down, about 3-4 minutes. (I turned of the heat at the 3-minute mark, worried that I might burn the sugar and this seemed to work fine)
Immediately transfer the popcorn to the large bowl, cover with the lid and shake to distribute the salt, cayenne and brewers yeast.
