Boise Brew Minute ( episode 83) - James at  Barbarian Brewing talks to us about using multiple yeast strains in beer to get different flavors. In this extended version of the interview, we discuss the three main characteristics brewers look for in yeast (attenuation, flocculation and flavor profile) as well as when it makes sense to select more than one yeast strain. We also talk about Barbarian's Saison Blanc which was licensed by  PicoBrew for their Pico homebrew machine.
