he result is, Discovery News explains, barrels of pale ale and German wheat beer offering a unique ale-quaffing experience due partly to the yeast’s singular metabolism. Cano explained: “The ancient yeast is restricted to a narrow band of carbohydrates, unlike more modern yeasts, which can consume just about any kind of sugar.”
Cano elaborated: “You can always buy brewing yeast, and your product will be based on the brewmaster’s recipes. Our yeast has a double angle: We have yeast no one else has and our own beer recipes.”
The dino-yeast will apparently evolve the ability to consume other forms of sugar, in the process changing the beers’ flavour. Cano intends to keep a stock of the original extraction to guard against evolutionary degradation of his brews.
Does this mean dinosaurs got drunk on berries?
