Eureka: My name is Sam and I am a homebrewer since 2006 and live in Switzerland, the chocolate, cheese and clock country. I have a strong scientific background and currently studying Molecular Life Sciences as a Master student. Due to my scientific background, I tend to prepare and carry out my beer related experiments and batches in a rather scientific way. I am therefore not afraid of using science… And I have to mention that English is not my native language.
My passion are sour beers (any kind), Porters, Stouts and Belgian beers in general. Plus some lost beer styles like Berliner Weisse. A further passion of mine is cultivating yeasts, isolating and brewing with souring organisms such as Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and others. At the moment I am most interested in establishing methods to cultivate, isolate and identify different Brettanomyces yeasts.
With this blog, I would like to share my methods, experiments, experiences and recipes. For further information and the background of my home brewery visit the respective page.
