A rare, wild yeast was recently discovered in a forest in Patagonia, at coordinates 41°S – 71°W. It turned out to be the mother of all lager yeasts, including the famous Heineken® A-Yeast. Heineken’s Master Brewer, Willem Van Waesberghe took the challenge to tame it into a limited edition beer: it gives the lager beer a surprising full taste, with spicy notes and fruity hints. A unique beer style was born: the “Wild Lager’’.
Many breweries, both small and large, use a three kettle system to brew beer as opposed to a more traditional four kettle system. One of the kettles pulls double duty and serves as both a mash and a lauter tun. The vessel needs to heat and maintain mash to a specific temperature. One degree can mean the difference between a good batch of beer and having to pour it down the drain. Typically a temperature sensor is placed on the wall of the kettle, away from the rake, to correlate what the temperature is throughout the kettle; a process that has proven to be inaccurate and causes a lot of batch-to-batch variation. This is not what a brewmaster, much less a beer connoisseur, wants to hear.
