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 the particular American Ale strain because it has a very neutral flavor profile.  Our goal was to let hop flavors and aromas take center stage, and this strain lets us do that.  This yeast strain is also very attenuative (ferments sugar very well) resulting in the kind of clean, dry finish we were looking for. – Dan Kleban, Founder
