Saint Arnold – Movable Yeast Series
You love beer. You know about malt and hops. And of course water is the biggest ingredient. But what about this yeast? First of all, without yeast, there would be no alcohol, and thus no beer (or wine, whiskey or atrocities like Jagermeister). But yeast does more than eat sugar and turn it into alcohol and CO2. It also produces esters and other compounds that create a significant part of the flavor profile in the beer.
With the Movable Yeast series, we will take some of our regular beers and pitch a batch with a different yeast from what we normally use. The first release will be Fancy Lawnmower Beer wort pitched with Bavarian hefeweizen yeast. We’re calling this version Weedwacker. It will be released draft only and we are hoping that bars and restaurants will serve the Lawnmower and Weedwacker side by side so you can see the difference. The release date for this is August 16.
