Collect local yeast

Bootleg Biology Yeast Wrangler Kit

Product Description

Yeast is all around us. It’s in the air, on every surface, in our backyard, and especially in our beer. Brewers are making local beers by growing their own hops, or even their own barley. But how many are making a 100% local beer with their own local strain of yeast?

In partnership with Bootleg Biology, we present the Backyard Yeast Wrangling Tool Kit: everything the experimental homebrewer needs to capture and culture a locally-sourced, pure wild yeast strain. In just a few simple steps you’ll be brewing with your own backyard yeast strain.

Part of Bootleg Biology’s mission is create one of the most diverse yeast banks in the world, including a yeast strain from every zip code in the country. Once you’ve captured your local yeast strain, becoming a part of Bootleg Biology is a simple as sending back the pre-paid, bonus Contributor pack included in the Tool Kit. You’ll receive recognition on as the yeast wrangler that captured your zip code.

Check out the video below, as Jeff Mello from Bootleg Biology explains what’s in the Backyard Yeast Wrangling Tool Kit and performs some simple demos on how to use it.code in the US will you be a part?
