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

Color ramato, non troppo limpida, con un buon cappello di schiuma. Profumi da APA che non aggrediscono il naso, ma che in bocca sono persistenti. Al palato è abbastanza dolce, mielata, forse anche troppo.

Ottima apa ambrata ben luppolata, fruttata e leggermente agrumata, ben maltata, sfumatura leggermente dolce e caramellata. Good job!

Litt uklar lys kobberfarge med et kremet skum dette limte seg fast i glassveggen. Deilig aroma av malt, karamell,tropisk frukt og grapefrukt. Smaken følger opp fin bitterhet og bra fylde. Lang ettersmak
