On 20th March YEASTDOC coordinator John Morrissey gave a talk on redesigning yeast to make different flavours, as part of the Lifelong Learning Festival in Cork. It was a fun, interactive evening where the 50/60 attendees were invited to smell a variety of yeast cultures to see if they could identify the different aromas being produced.  A local beer sommelier and qualified wine taster guided participants through the flavours  and aromas in a variety of craft beers and fine wines.
