What You'll Get
Brewers make wort. Yeast make beer. Our yeast class and accompanying tasting will delve deeply into the world of everyone’s favorite microorganism.
The yeast lecture will cover:
- A history of yeast as it pertains to brewing and home brewers.
- Yeast Nutrition, growth and chemical pathways that effect home brewers.
- How to choose and maintain a happy yeast culture in your home brew and how strain selection impacts beer flavor.
- Pitching rates, Propagation, starters, collection (top and bottom cropping) storage.
- We’ll discuss the changes in Yeast cultures over generations and how home brewers rinse & clean yeast to repitch.
During the second half of the class we’ll conduct a tasting experiment to identify flavor differences between yeast strains under ideal fermentation conditions. The school took a large batch of beer and separated it into eight fermenters. We then pitched a different yeast into each fermenter.
The class identified is made available through CourseHorse, a 3rd party marketplace for Beer Tasting classes and more.
