This project involves culturing wild yeasts from sour ales in the lab and using them for homebrewing. Stay tuned for more posts!
Wild Yeast Project: Goals and aims to achieve them.
Isolating wild yeast from commercial dregs: Russian River’s Sanctification and Temptation.
MYPG Plates: Growth media for yeast.
MYPG Plating dregs: Plating experiments using the dregs from Sanctification and Temptation
WLN/WLD Plates: Differential growth media for wild yeasts and bacteria.
WLN/WLD Plating dregs: Plating Brettanomyces and Temptation dregs on differential growth media for wild yeast.
Plating yeast from a lambic: An attempt to isolate yeast from a bottle of Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise (2004).
Lambic plating results: Different species of wild yeast and bacteria are isolated from a lambic
Lambic plating results: Minor setback – not wild yeast but bacteria.
Strain from Cantillon Blåbaer: First time a wild yeast strain was isolated from this famous beer.
