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: I chose this yeast for a variety of reasons. The complex spice and fruit aromas and flavors this yeast creates certainly help define our beer, however it is this yeast's ravenous appetite for sugars that makes it so valuable to us.  Handled properly, this yeast can produce a beer that is bone dry but also not lacking in body and mouthfeel. – Tim Adams, Co-Founder
