Local Yeast Project™ cultures are our hand-picked favorite Local Yeast Project™ strains that were originally sourced from local areas around the U.S. and the world. These cultures are a great opportunity for brewers interested in the areas they were sourced to create a house wild culture for brewing. The majority of Local Yeast Project cultures will be considered clean-fermenting, are highly attenuative and work best at normal ale temperatures.
Due to these culture’s wild nature, there will be variations in fermentation performance and flavor/aroma contributions batch to batch. Brewing with local wild cultures will be a fun and unique experience, but will be far more variable than with domesticated brewer’s yeast. This is an opportunity to get a truly local flavor by starting with a local wild culture and shaping it to your preferences and brewing profile.
Joshua Squires –
Used this in a dunkel recipe and was very pleased with the results. Lightning fast fermentation. Was really pleased with the accuracy of the flavor/aroma profile. The bubblegum notes were present, but not dominant. In my brew the honey, caramel and fruit notes (raisin, dates) stood out the most. Fwiw, German hops are a great compliment to this yeast.
