Jeff Mello is a yeast wrangler. Find out what this means and so much more about yeast on today's episode of Fuhmentaboudit as hosts Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett chat with Jeff about home brewing, yeast strains and other tidbits of information about yeast and making your own beer. Jeff runs Bootleg Biology, an open source yeast (and wild bugs) project whose goal is to create the most diverse library of microbes for the creation of alcoholic and fermented beverages. Jeff leaves no stone unturned in this conversation on yeast and brewing. Things get particularly scientific here, but don't be afraid - any home brewer can implement the tips Jason offers here. Tune in and get the inside scoop on yeast! This program was brought to you by Edwards VA Ham.

"Anywhere you are there is yeast available. It's amazing how character can be different between different strains." [09:00]

"I need people to become a part of Bootleg Biology. It's bigger than myself i want to teach people things - the larger goal is to make a database that shows there is local yeast everywhere." [18:00]

She has worked with students in the classroom, in school gardens and local natural areas, and on backpacking and sea kayaking wilderness trips.

Mary earned a B.A. in Biology from Lewis and Clark College and PhD in Ecology from the University of Montana. Before working with Forest Voices, she taught as an assistant professor of Biology at Pacific University in Oregon.

Noah Jackson is a conservation consultant and storyteller whose work combines photography, writing, and new media to document conservation and community issues. He has worked in Asia and Africa for over a decade, starting as a Peace Corps volunteer, and continuing through graduate work, a Fulbright fellowship, independent projects, and as an auditor and farmer trainer for the Rainforest Alliance. His storytelling work can be found in publications such as the National Geographic Traveler, the Rainforest Alliance Blog and Canopy newsletter.
