This Brewery in Australia is Brewing Beer From Belly Button Yeast
You know how you get that little bit of lint in your belly button from time to time? Yes, we all get once in a while, but we bet that none of ever thought to brew beer with it!
That’s exactly what the brewers at Australia’s 7 Cent Brewery thought of. Along with the basic ingredients for beer like water, malt and hops, the brewers decided to add a touch of themselves. Yes, you guessed it right. A little bit of yeast from their belly button lint.
They call it the Belly Button Beer and describe it as “perhaps the first beer in the world fermented from yeast captured from the brewer’s belly button fluff.”
Co-founders Brendan Baker, Matthew Boustead, and Doug Bremner carefully — and very scientifically — each collected their own cultures, which were then spread onto agar plates and incubated. The trio told 9 News that they “found all sorts of interesting things growing, including what appeared to be colonies of yeast.”
“A new world-ish Belgian-ish Witbier with fresh orange zest and toasted coriander seeds,” the site reads, noting the yeast adds a spicy hint of banana. All in all, it doesn’t sound that weird. “Once you get used to the idea that yeast is yeast no matter where you get it from and that the water we drink is really recycled dinosaur urine, then you can just sit back and enjoy the beer,” as the site says.
So, yeast is yeast, no matter where it comes from. Is that what you will tell yourself when you’re having a bit of this beer?
