Episode 59 - Yeast Mysteries with Sui Generis

Experimental Brewing show

Summary: In our ongoing efforts to try and learn everything - and fail miserably - we revisit Denny's question from Episode 58 about dried lager strains labelled like ale strains. After much listener input, Drew sits down with Bryan Heit of Sui Generis Brewing to get the current scientific picture on yeast genetics. It turns out science makes for really complicated answers! Plus, we talk retirement, rough times for craft brewers, charity and how lasers are making better beer before digging into your questions. Finally, we close out with Denny's favorite new cooking show! Episode Links: BrewSwag.com - Use Code "Experimental" and save 7.5% and give 7.5% to our charity fund!
