Thread Name: BS: Unpasteurized beer
Subject: RE: BS: Unpasteurized beer
The Belgian beer Jim Dixon spoke of would have a palatable variety used as finishing yeast, but if you drink beer with some primary fermenting yeast still in it you will spit it out before you swallow it anyway.
Unless the beer is pitched with a second yeast (called 'guiling' or 'kreusening') the yeast will be the primary strain even in the finished beer.
