Thought I read that too.

I used to work for a company that made laboratory blenders and homogenizers. The application list would make your skin crawl. Out of all the horrible things that scientists would blend up, the one thing that would tear up a titanium blade was human hair. One guy was trying to extract collagen from hair (for cosmetic purposes I believe) and was buying replacement blade$ every month becau$e of the damage.

But yeast living on hair? That just sounds....unsanitary.

Yeast is everywhere, which is why sourdough bread exists. It's not surprising that some one who works in a brewery would end up with a bunch of yeast stuck to their beard.

Rogue is the worst craft brewery in America.
In fact, i'd call them the "Nickleback of craft beer".

It was started by a former Nike executive as a way to simply cash-in on the microbrew boom rather than pour their passion into making great beer.

They make a medicore product, which they sell for far more than their craft competitors as a way to position themselves as some kind of elite brand, and treat their employees poorly.

And then they created this abomination:

No, it isn't good. The name sounds delicious, but it is an awful, phony & smoky mess.

I dunno, maybe it's because I've only had them bottled, but all of the Rogue brews I've had were kinda weak tea. Not a lot of presence, body or flavor.

Also, picture of the brewmaster:

Hey now - it wasn't just his. Others also participated in that experiment.

That beer wasn't too bad - his true abomination was "Red and Black" - a mint beer. Imagine mixing Scope and a porter.. Sounds delicious huh? Thankfully only a small batch was made and only in the brewpubs. In the end, they were charging half-price just to get rid of the stuff.

That sounds farking putrid. What is the matter with these maniacs? Have they tried brewing with the yeast found in farking toe jam yet?

I came to say it can't be any worse than the Maple Bacon disgusting shiat they make. It's a sure bet it's a tourist if I see anyone with a bottle on the street. People that live here know just how gross it is.

Yep. I've made sourdough with wild yeast (put water and flour in a cup, leave out uncovered for two weeks, feeding occasionally). Nothing disgusting about yeast from hair.

In fact, the neato thing about S. cerevisiae is that it actually kills off everything harmful in its environment really efficiently. You could get real sick eating a week old starter, but after two weeks, it's safe.

Interestingly, the ancient Egyptians, credited with the creation of mead as a beverage, used just this method of obtaining yeast. It eventually became a highly ritualized process in which the eldest daughter in the household (everyone that could afford to made their own mead) sat in the tub containing the honey and water mixture in order to provide the yeast for fermentation. This included even the royal families, although anyone caught trying to sneak a peak at pharoah's daughter or attempting to purloin any of the beverage she created were put to death. In fact, special slaves, usually from a lesser noble household, were used to clean the tub between uses so that the process was kept strictly controlled.

Yeah - my reaction was "so they're going to make a beer using the yeast the brewer already uses every day?"

You're not. Craft brewers now seem to be putting out two types of brew - something that tastes like I'm chewing on a mouthfull of hops or "stouts" that taste like a liquified candy bar.

Bleh

Keep your umpteenth Dark Lord remake or IPA made with yoir clever hops blend and give me a good pilsener

Maybe they could make special brews and use Kerry King, Billy Gibbons, Shavo or Scott Ian.

Sickly sweet (and/or burned) malt syrup is the other end of the "I Don't Know What the Fark I'm Doing" school of brewing. Good beer is a matter of balance. A porter with correctly roasted malt supported by a decent hop background is a thing of beauty and wonder, but it takes work to get it right.
 
2012-09-27 12:44:09 PM
I hear they were considering making their beer from yeast from Chuck Norris' beard..

.. but then they decided it would be a bad idea because it would immediately kill anyone who tried to drink it. Chuck Norris would never go down without a fight.

If it is as good as any of his other beers, I will happily drink a few. John Maier makes some of the most delicious beers this side of Oregon. I hope they have it on tap at the hops farm in Independence.

Nope. Completely different kind of yeast. Brewer's yeast is Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
