GY7B: New Yeast Strain:

Tue Jan 16, 2018 9:12 pm

Has anyone seen this article yet?

Someone shared it on my facebook feed and it seems like a really neat yeast. They found it at a university in Philadelphia and it seems like it could be a really fun yeast to use. It looks like it is a good fermenter, good flocculation, and creates a good amount of lactic acid in a short amount of time. The cool thing is that it is a yeast and looks as though it won't contaminate plastic items. I am sure there will be the "true sour" people who won't like this, but I think it could be a great option for creating a quicker sour without dabbling with bacteria. Thoughts?
