Post by: klickitat jim on April 10, 2013, 11:02:05 PM
I guess since Washington has all the hops we can let Oregon claim yeast... way to go Wyeast!

I love it! A state government with its priorities in order - first the update homebrewing legislation a little while back and now seeing yeast as the most employed workers in the state (at least per capita!)

Hey! We have our fair share of hops as well.
We're number two! We're number two!

I caught wind of this earlier this week. What a great way for the state to show appreciation for the craft brewing contribution. Without the bugs, there is no brew!

But, my daughter advises that it is not the first state to adopt a State Microbe, the Cheeseheads beat you to it!

And where would we be with Lacto for sour beers?  Illinois is pursuing E. Coli, because our politicians have all tested positive for its presence; indeed some are said to be full of its source product.
