“I am grateful that the universe has given us yeast!

There was once a time that we did not know how beer or wine was created. We would set a barrel of of a liquid outside for a period of time and then we would get drunk….and then we would thank the gods!

Some brewers would pass a “magic spoon” from generation to generation not even realizing it was the yeast living on the spoon that was responsible for beer.

But it wasn’t the gods, it was yeast. Little microbes that love to eat sugar and create ethanol.

For thousands of years it was hit or miss, that is until science got involved. Discovering it was this fungi and its daughters that were happily munching away on sugar and well….pooping alcohol, we got to brewing and drinking. Don’t be grossed out, technically oxygen is tree flatulence….Somehow that didn’t make it better, huh?

So be thankful for yeast this Thanksgiving!”

– Robert Cosio, Implementation Consultant, VicinityBrew Software
