Event Details

Brewers make wort.  Yeast make beer.


Our yeast class and accompanying tasting will delve deeply into the world of everyones favorite microorganism.

The yeast lecture will cover.

- A history of yeast as it pertains to brewing and home brewers.

- Yeast Nutrition, growth and chemical pathways that effect home brewers.

- How to choose and maintain a happy yeast culture in your home brew and how strain selection impacts beer flavor.

- Pitching rates, Propagation, starters, collection (top and bottom cropping) storage.

- We'll discuss the changes in Yeast cultures over generations and how home brewers rinse & clean yeast to repitch.


Tasting - Lost Brittish Strains

During the second half of the class we'll conduct a tasting experiment to identify flavor differences between yeast strains under ideal fermentation conditions.  Bitter & Esters took a large batch of Pale Ale and Separated it into eight fermenters.  We then pitched a different yeast into each fermenter.  

The samples that we will taste and discuss:

1028 London Ale
1098 British Ale
1099 Whitbread ale
1275 Thames Valley
1318 London ale 3
1335 British ale 2
1469 West Yorkshire ale

1928 London ESB 

The yeast class will be broken into two sections, Lecture & Tasting. Tickets can be purchased for either lecture + Tasting or only for the tasting session.

Each ticket type can optionally include A copy of "Yeast: The Practical Guide to Beer Fermentation" (our unofficial textbook) at a discounted price. Space for this class is limited and it will sell out, therefore all sales for this class will be final.


Class is held At Bitter & Esters, 700 Washington Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11238
