As far as I know it (the gas portion) is as pure co2 as you would get out of a welding shop.

You can't get gas from a mixture with water in it without having some water vapor in the gas. Also, you can't get gas from a mixture with alcohol or any other substance with a vapor pressure without having some of that substance in the gas. When you smell the bottle of yeast/sugar/water you don't smell any of those substances as much as you smell other organic compounds - they are also mixed in with the CO2 coming out. But, I will bet that the gas is 99% CO2.
