How and What to Brew with S. eubayanus

Saccharomyces eubayanus was discoved just five years ago in the rugged mountains of Patagonia, the vast Tibetan Plateau and Wisconsin. Responsible for creating modern day lager yeast via hybridization with ale yeast, S. eubayanus has the potential of being a novel brewing yeast. However, since its discovery in 2011, little has been done to investigate its brewing potential. This seminar will present data from 50 beers representing 25 styles that were brewed with S. eubayanus. The diversity of beer styles and brewing conditions generated a vast amount of fermentation data over a wide spectrum of beers. In addition, beer will be sampled to enhance your understanding of what S. eubayanus contributes to beer.
