The last couple GBA meetings we got to see the results of our experiment with yeast. We made a 50 gallon batch of beer and split it between 10 different yeasts.  The beer was a German Helles base and we tried five lager strains and five Belgian strains.  If you’ve ever wanted to know the difference between German lager yeast and Southern German lager yeast, this was the meeting for you!  For both of these meetings, Ricky led the tasting discussion on the different yeast characteristics from each strain, and gave a bit of background on what some common features of these yeasts are.  If you couldn’t make these meetings, don’t worry, we usually do an experiment like this once a year.
