Drinking Beer to Serve You Better!

June 21, 2013

MikeSummer is slowly peeking it’s head over the horizon which means it is time for beer! What better way to celebrate this time of year, than with a staff beer tasting?! This was, of course ‘strictly’ for research purposes ; )

Two weekends ago, the Wine Sense team gathered at the Raddison downtown for a night of pizza, wings and beer…oops I meant to say research! One of the main purposes of this research was to compare the differences in beers made with WyeastWyeast liquid yeast against and the same beer made with dry yeast.

The results were astounding. We tasted various styles and the liquid yeast was the winner every time! There was more flavour, with a cleaner taste and more body. The beer was also smoother, tasting more like a crafted microbrew! It was a huge eye opener. Don’t believe me?? Ask any of the Wine Sense staff.

Wyeast Liquid Yeasts are specific yeast strains that are cultured from the specific style of beer you are making. As a result they enhance the flavour of the style of beer you’re making. If you’re making an Ale kit and prefer traditional English Ales then use the London Ale yeast- prefer American Micro Brews? Then try the American Ale yeast- an easy way to customize  your beer kits. Each Wyeast Package holds over 100 billion yeast cells so fermentation is fast and complete.

So, next time you are in for a beer kit, make sure to pick up a package of liquid yeast with your kit. Your beer will taste better, and you will thank us in the end!
