Collecting Yeast, Making Cider

This week on Earth Eats we revisit a couple of stories on yeast fermentation from last fall.

First, we talk with Indiana University Biochemist Matt Bochman about his research and his collection of yeast strains. Next, we visit with some cider makers at Friendly Beasts to hear about what you can do with a little yeast...and a whole lot of apples.

Then Chef Daniel Orr brings us a recipe for another refreshing beverage, garden-fresh basil lemonade.

Music in this episode:

Piker Sam-by Calexico

Mantra-by Vibes Alive

Pelican Narrows-by Dan Snaith (Caribou)

Earth Eats’ theme music is composed by Erin Tobey and performed by Erin and Matt Tobey.
