      Yeast Class Lecture & Tasting - Belgian

      Brewers make wort.  Yeast make beer.


      Our yeast class and accompanying tasting will delve deeply into the world of everyones 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.  Bitter & Esters took a large batch of beer and Separated it into eight fermenters.  We then pitched a different yeast into each fermenter.  The eight samples that we will taste and discuss will be:

      Belgian Saison 3724

      Belgian Ardennes 3522

      Belgian Wit 3944

      Forbidden Fruit 3463

      Belgian Abbey Ale 1214

      Belgian Abbey Ale 2 1762

      Belgian Strong Ale 1388

      Trappist High Gravity 3787


      The yeast class will be broken into two sections, Lecture & Tasting.  Tickets can be purchased for either lecture + Tasting or only for the tasting session.  (TASTING ONLY DATE TBD)

      Each ticket type can optionally include A copy of "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" (our unofficial textbook) at a discounted price.   Space for this class is limited and it will sell out, therefore all sales for this class will be final.
