Computer Controllable yeast....

So is the suggestion here that say, one could reduce (or increase) ester production regardless of wort temperature (within reason)?  Or kick the Dupont strain in the ass to finish that Saison without all the messin around it typically does?  :)

You could do all kinds of stuff with GM yeast.

You could make a yeast that creates THC, called "Denny's REAL Favorite 420". ;)
