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]

Humans have been perfecting the science of alcohol production for ten thousand years, but modern scientists are only just beginning to distill the complex reactions behind the perfect buzz. In Proof: The Science of Booze, a spirited tour across continents and cultures, Adam Rogers puts our alcoholic history under the microscope, from our ancestors’ accidental discovery of fermented drinks to the cutting-edge laboratory research that proves why—or even if—people actually like the stuff. Tune in to this week's episode of The Speakeasy as Damon chats with Adam about the book and the science of booze! This program was brought to you by Michters.

"I'm a science writer by training and I try to understand the world through that lens." [04:00]
