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: This blend is certainly an unusual one, containing an American ale strain and a Mexican lager strain. We were experimenting with ale yeasts different from the popular “Chico” strain, as most people call it. This particular ale yeast did not want to finish the job, attenuating just over half of the sugars available before dropping out. This instance required a "finisher" strain to be added to complete fermentation, which isn't always the easiest job for yeast. The healthiest yeast in house at the time was a Mexican lager strain, so we used it and it worked! – Greg Abbot, Head Brewer
