We’re always so excited when we get yeast from @melloknows & @bootlegbiology, but this delivery is incredibly special to us. Many of you have noticed that the past two batches of our Katy beer have not been quite how you’ve remembered them - while the nose was there, the body and the flavor were a bit light. We started to notice the difference in our last few months at our old location - no matter how we blended the barrels, the beer just seemed “Katy-Light-ish”. Ordering new yeast wasn’t working for this solera method brew, ordering new barrels didn’t work and we weren’t quite sure how to proceed with this beer - do we retire it? We hated to think that this was the best option, Katy was a beautifully unique brew and we were incredibly proud of the beer - insert Jeff Mello of Bootleg Biology & Matt Walters of @foedercrafters into the story. Both friends encouraged us to find “old” bottles of the beer circa 2013 and before - the Katy we loved and remembered in the height of our blending. We asked, and the response was incredible - dozens of old bottles of Katy came flooding in. We offered to pay, and not one of you whom brought bottles would accept - “Just bring the Katy that we love back” 😭. We tried the bottles, picked out a few that seemed to encompass everything we loved about the beer and sent them off to Jeff to see if there was any viable yeast to be harvested. Indeed there were and after many months of waiting and propagation, we have these 4 isolated Brett strains in our hands and now in barrel. After months of aging and patience we’ll sample the barrels, hopefully finding at least one that is the Katy we remember. From there we will (finger’s crossed) pitch that barrel to 4 barrels, and start to scale the batch sizes of the beer, slowly but surely. We know many of you have been wondering what happened to the beer, and we’re very very grateful for your patience - with hope and a little luck, this wonderful little Brett Beer will be back and readily available by late 2019/early 2020. 🙏 #KatyTedTalk
