Dorset brewery achieves UK first for import of yeast strain
A Dorset brewery has achieved a first in the UK by importing a Trappist yeast strain.
Sunny Republic, based at Winterbourne Kingston imported the strain to make their winter warmer - St Wite's Ale.
Andy Brown, chairman of the local CAMRA branch and Dan Griffiths, brewery liaison officer from CARMA came to the brewery to make history by tapping the first barrel.
Brent Smith from Sunny Republic said: "We took our Dorset Cross premium ale recipe and imported the yeast from Rochforte Abbey in Belgium to give the beer the funkifier factor."
