Yeast Workshop

  • Bozeman Brewing Company 504 North Broadway Avenue Bozeman, MT, 59715 United States (map)

Learn more about the most important part of making beer with Bridger Brew Crew's Vice President & pro-brewer, Ryan Beal! We'll be meeting in the back of Bozone's brewery to go over the finer points of this vital brewing ingredient.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Yeast counts. How and Why?

  • Starter Sizes

  • How to wash and reuse yeast

  • Stress (How? Desired? Effects? How many times can you reuse? Esterification)

  • Capturing wild yeast

  • Selecting yeast through plating

  • Capturing yeast from commercial yeast

  • Commercial practices for reusing yeast

NOTE:  While this is a member event, we will be opening up this educational workshop to non-members for a small one-time fee of $5/person. We'll collect cash/check at the door on the day of the event. There will be no charge for current dues-paying members.
