TIPS AND BEERSOURCES
Wild Yeast 101
A lot of beers are marketed as wild if they contain brett, brett itself is often called a wild yeast, and WPL644 trois was thought to be brett but is apparently sacc and is being called a ‘wild’ saccharomyces. But if you buy a pure strain of brett from a lab, is it really wild? You know what you’re buying, you know basically how it will behave and what it will do to your beer. Maybe that yeast strain was wild once but I don’t really think that’s wild anymore.
BrewDog’s The DogHouse Craft Beer Hotel
BrewDog is on a mission to open “the world’s first craft beer hotel, The DogHouse, along with a sour beer brewery” and, needless to say, life is worth living again.
