Viking #yeastscreamcontest

January 11th, 2021 // By // Uncategorized // View Comments

Here at Great Fermentations, we’ve brewed a ton of beer and have always added yeast to our wort, placed the airlock, and called it a day. WHO KNEW though that we were missing a crucial step in this process; the Yeast Scream! According to ancient nordic brewing tradition, Vikings used to “scream” at their wort ceremonially to start the fermentation process.

Now we want YOU to show us your best yeast scream! And if you happen to have our favorite one, you’ll be able to snag some awesome free swag from Sugar Creek Malt, Crazy Horse Hops, and Omega Yeast!

Contest Details

To enter the contest, all you have to do is post a short video of your yeast scream on Instagram with the hashtag #yeastscreamcontest

Also, make sure to tag the following accounts to increase your chances of winning: @gr8fermentation @sugarcreekmaltco @crazyhorsehops @omegayeast

Our submission for gr8fermentation #yeastscreamcontest! Today we made the Ceasar's Treehouse recipe from Great Fermentations, chose imperialyeast Dry Hop, and are keg fermenting with a floating dip tube to prevent any oxidation of the hop flavors. 

We have a tradition of blessing the yeast before we seal it up for fermentation, and I guess vikings do a #yeastscream to ensure perfect fermentation.  This is extra fun!
