This image is a DNA photograph. It was captured as part of the beerDNA series; a collaboration with Maine craft breweries to showcase the beauty of an integral part of what makes each brewery so unique, their yeast. Yeast samples were collected from 16 different Maine breweries, processed in a molecular lab and photographed.

Did you know? Yeast is a critical part of the brewing process in that it ferments the sugars released from grains and converts them to alcohol. Many breweries use different strains of yeast, or propagate their own house strains, adding to the complexity and originality of the beers. Yeast is also an environmental powerhouse. It plays critical roles in ecosystems such as decomposing biological material and degrading environmental pollutants.

 

Brewer’s Statement: We chose this blend of yeast because of it's complex flavor profile and well, we love brettanomyces here at Austin Street Brewery.  Fermentation with this blend results in a rustic saison flavor profile complimented by brettanomyces “funk” and a super dry, tart finish.   The yeast was purchased from a lab that is very small and fairly new, not unlike ourselves.  The exact origin of the blend is unknown but that mysterious aspect is part of the reason we love it, and can make it our own.  – Jake Austin, Brewer
