MGTOW? Ha! Really? LOL
IGOR - the original switch hitter!
Chances are the yeasts were in the bread anyway. Omnis cellula e cellula. If it’s on her, there are probably wild spores in the environment. If I made sourdough bread, my culture would probably have some in it. It’s likely unavoidable. This species probably does contribute to the flavor though. It metabolizes sucrose into acid. People need to grow up. Bread is a product of fermentation, and fermentation is universally a nasty process. It’s basically letting food rot.
Womankind mourns the loss, I’m sure.
I totally thought that link was going to go to this brew:
Strangely this did not provoke a negative reaction from the internet that I ever heard of.
Yes, I’m crying in my beer over here. Beer made with yeast found in someone’s beard.
Okay, that’s a lie, I never got my hands on any of that. But that is a thing that happened.
Funny that eh?
A ringing endorsement.
It would be an equal opportunity offender for sure. Here’s an idea: maybe we could stop being creepy with bodily secretions. Just spitballing… oh.
Loaf of loath?
Ahaaaa, you scooped me by a minute
There was a little bit of “ewwwww,” but I don’t remember seeing any personal attacks on the brewmaster. And they put the stuff up for sale and . . . people bought it. So.
Pfffffff. Nobody tricked anybody else into eating the bread or drinking the beer unawares . . . because that would be creepy. Maybe people who are worried about things other people do that don’t affect them could stop.
Except that they did, unaware themselves. Unless they used a very well characterized starting culture and worked in highly sterile environment. Otherwise some cross-contamination is pretty much inevitable.
A lot of common things suddenly become “creepy” just because people become aware of them.
People are weird.
And then you can get into any of the spontaneously-fermented beers, which are rife with all kinds of airborne fungi and bacteria and are not heated after the fermentation. What you get in your glass, in other words, is a live culture of hundreds of species of things most people can’t pronounce, spread across several genera. Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, Pediococcus, and Saccharomyces just to start. Basically, dilute and unbaked sourdough culture. Delicious.
Well, i’d eat it.
I mean the bread. The bread!
I did on the site I originally saw it on. I’m not a hypocrite whatever else you think. And by the way I’m questioning the taste (npi) of the story in general. I’ve made no personal attacks on the experimenter though I do see some who have.
I just got a funny look for chortling very loudly. Well played
Yeah well, if I’d ever made you dinner (which is vanishingly unlikely, chances are I’d have scratched my balls at some point. And it would be delicious).
