Ep 209: Science... sort of - Yeast from a Beast

Play Download media

00:00:00 - Patrick and Ryan are joined by protocetids for cultures, and dealing with all the trials and tribulations of a yeast strain cultivated from a bone. It's a good story, and by all accounts a good beer. 


00:21:14 - Speaking of beers, we're all having some. Jasper is having an Elder Wright, appropriately made by the aforementioned Lost Rhino. Jason was having a vodka tonic, but all our beer talk forced him to switch to an cellared Bone Dusters. Patrick is fighting a sore throat with the help of a hot toddy. And Ryan tries to keep everything thematic with a Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch Weasel.


00:29:25 - The second segment is all about what Jason and Jasper do when they're not busy brewing. Jason helps run JasperYeast, a company dedicated to providing brewers with really good yeast, which is also very important, as far as we're concerned. 


00:54:17 - PaleoPOWs are a lot like collaboration beers: they both take multiple parties working together to complete, and everyone hopes they turn out at least OK. Patrick starts things off by thanking a former , an awesome zombie platformer set in 1980's Seattle. If you're a donor e-mail in to get the Steam code!
