Our attention grabbing Experimental Series’ of yesteryear (2023) included ‘Trio of Dips’, ‘Sheer Terroir’ and ‘Fashionably Punctual’ and unveiled the power that unique ingredients and techniques had on a single base recipe. Continuing on this exploration, ‘From Yeast To West’ traverses the uncharted landscape of yeast variations. Our quest? To investigate the impact of yeast on a quintessential West Coast IPA.
But why limit ourselves to a single yeast, when the scientific method demands a controlled experiment? Our intrepid brewing spirit compels us to explore a West Coast IPA recipe through the lens of three distinct strains, employing a uniform base and Yakima Chief YCH 701 Trial Idaho 7 hops. This side-by-side comparison displays the subtle, and not-so-subtle, ways yeast can sculpt the landscape of our beloved brew.
Thiolised Yeast: Brace yourselves for an expedition into the realm of the unconventional! This strain's mischievous nature liberates unique thioester compounds that boldly accentuate the juicy aromatics and flavours of the hops.
