Welcome to the Safari

Welcome to my adventures in fermentation. I have become a huge fan of all the work that microbes such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae do for us. I have been brewing beer since the early 1990's and have always been fascinated by the process of fermentation. Having studied way to much biochemistry I can fully appreciate why our yeasty friends are so happy to ditch the Kreb cycle and stick to good old fashioned anaerobic respiration!

As I explore the art of brewing I continually look for new and exciting aspects to play with, one of my more recent adventures is starting a yeast farm. Thanks to google, AHA tech talk, some basic information from white labs, and some rudimentary lab equipment I have begun to lasso those crazy yeast out there and bring them into the corals. I have been building up the collection both for personal satisfaction and for use by my homebrew friends.

Currently the stable includes:

  • Cry Havoc
  • Belgian Ale
  • London ESB
  • Whitbread Ale
  • East Coast Ale
