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 only use this one yeast strain at Barreled Souls. This Scottish yeast puts off some esters and phenols during fermentation that give it a unique character, but is neutral enough that it can be used in a wide variety of styles.  We also chose this strain because it works well in our Burton Union system. It’s a medium to high flocculating yeast which helps to create more krausen on top of the fermenting beer. This krausen is then pushed up and out of the barrel and into a yeast catchment system. This gives us a large enough yeast yield to be able to pitch into subsequent batches. – Chris Schofield, Owner
