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

Bottled. Orangeish golden colour with a small white creamy head. Aroma is a bunch of fruity and floral notes with some sweet malts to it as well. Flavour is very similar, and actually has very clean tastes, which work well together.

Bright clear amber beer with a good white head. Smooth palate, slightly soft. Good fine carbonation. Soft bready malts, fairly sweet. Malt cream. Light citrus and even a touch of spice. Finishes soft. Not a bad beer but not feeling very Pils like.

Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; batch 234, bb 07-10-14
Light amber color, hazy, with copper hue; medium sized compact head. The malt aroma has a nice biscuity side; honey coated roasted almonds. Smooth mouthfeel; full bodied for a Pilsner; very good malt flavor with biscuits and light toffee; correct bitterness.
Wonderful Pilsner, balanced and rich.
