Origins of S.F. Sour Dough...

March 18, 2009 - 8:49pm -- ClassicAles

Hello All;


Wanted to stop in and introduce myself. I've been a craft brewer (home brewer) for several years now and tend to be on the teckie geekie side of things. I've brewed many styles of beer and like the hobby. Why am I telling you this? It all has to do with the history of sour dough yeast and where the San Francisco taste was born.
