This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme are revisiting yeast and beer with SouthYeast Labs. David Thornton and Even Skjervold are interested in showing the terroir of yeast with their isolated yeast strains! Tune into this episode to hear how yeasts from different regions can affect the taste of a brew, cheese, and beyond! How do bee populations change the character of various yeasts? Hear about David and Even’s brew science education, and how their research has made them better brewers! Find out how David and Even feel about discovering SCOBYs in the field! This program has been brought to you by Route 11 Potato Chips.
“Beer is the gateway. Brewing strains are used for cheeses and bread… All of these ferments depend on organisms, and there are different organisms in different regions, and they very from season-to-season.” [12:10]
