The unsung heroes, the foot soldiers of the revolution. We owe a huge debt to the billions of tiny yeast cells that work tirelessly to ferment sugars into alcohol and CO2. But yeast isn’t just here for the grunt work. Yeast has the power to change the flavour, aroma and complexion of your beer in an instant. This series is designed to showcase the impact different yeasts have on the same base beer.
This series of 4 beers gives the limelight to four totally different yeast strains: Belgian Trappist, Pilsen Lager, American Ale and Bavarian Weizen. All 4 beers have been brewed to the same ABV using a blend of Centennial and Amarillo hops and a backbone of Pale Ale, Munich and Cara Malts. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Twist: Each beer is identical except for the different yeast used to ferment the beers creating 4 radically different beers from the same starting point

Christian (12953) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Golden with a small white head. Fruity hop aroma with a touch of grainy malt. Sweet malty flavour with grainy character, straw, fruity notes, European strong lager-type alcohol, and a very bitter finish. This series is slightly more interesting than Mikkellers yeast series, but still not neutral enough hopped for the yeast to shine
