Beer is basically the combination
of 4 ingredients: water, barley malts, hops, and
yeast. The living organisms that do all the
hard work in converting your sweet water from the
mash (wort) into alcohol and CO2 to create the home
brewed beer is yeast. Without yeast you have
no beer. Yeast also imparts certain flavors in
beer and accordingly there are plenty of different
types. Let's talk about pitching yeast (a
fancy term that just means you pour yeast into the
fermenting vessel with the wort).
What is Yeast?
Before we get into the process of pitching yeast,
you may be asking yourself, "what is yeast?"
Many home brewers prefer to create a yeast
starter the day before brewing.
