A few weeks ago I wrote about a wild yeast strain that was discovered in Philadelphia that produces Lactobacillus while fermenting. The yeast, known as GY7B has gained a lot of interest from both professional and homebrewers alike.
Seems the University of the Sciences isn’t alone. Shortly after the piece ran online I received an email from Saucy Brew Works in Cleveland, Ohio saying they have been working with Wild Pitch Yeast “to pioneer a new strain of yeast that makes lactic acid.” They call their strain YH72.
There’s a seemingly endless amount of beer on the shelves and on tap these days. While I get to write about beer for a living, I sometimes like to take a break from the desk and I head down to the stoop with some recent beer releases and spend a little time relaxing and taking in the world and the flavors.
