Why do we avoid filtering our beers?

What is brewer’s yeast?

Brewer’s yeast is an ingredient used in the production of beer and bread. It is made from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a one-celled fungus. Brewer’s yeast has a bitter taste.

Brewer’s yeast is also used as a nutritional supplement. It’s a rich source of chromium, which may help your body maintain normal blood sugar levels. It is also a source of B vitamins.

Brewer’s yeast is considered a probiotic and is used to aid digestion.

What does brewer’s yeast do?

Brewer’s yeast contains small organisms (microflora) that help maintain the proper functioning of the digestive tract. It’s contains nutritional value and is a rich source of:

  • chromium
  • protein
  • selenium
  • potassium
  • iron
  • zinc
  • magnesium

It is also a great source of B vitamins that provide:

  • thiamine (B-1)
  • riboflavin (B-2)
  • niacin (B-3)
  • pantothenic acid (B-5)
  • pyridoxine (B-6)
  • folic acid (B-9)
  • biotin (B-7)

What are the benefits of brewer’s yeast?

The probiotic characteristics of brewer’s yeast may make it an effective way to prevent diarrhea. It has been used to treat other disorders of the digestive tract, including:

  • diarrhea caused by antibiotics
  • traveler’s diarrhea
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • clostridium difficile colitis
  • lactose intolerance
  • Brewer’s yeast can provide energy and may help maintain healthy skin, hair, eyes, and mouth. It may be effective at supporting the nervous system and enhancing the immune system.

The chromium in brewer’s yeast may help control sugar levels for patients with type 2 diabetes by improving glucose tolerance.

Brewer’s yeast is a source of B vitamins but it does not contain B-12. Inadequate amounts of B-12 can cause anemia, so it’s important to make sure you have sources of B-12 in your diet.

Brewery Reopening 2018

20 months after the fire which affected Bucks Star Brewery, the roof on the building has now been replaced and internal works are taking place to have the brewery reopened for the New Year.

The Founder of the brewery, Datis, says the challenges of the past 20 months have not only served to strengthen the character of the business and it’s offering, but have also revealed how supportive members of the community have been during this time, especially those who have bought into the Growler Swap initiative. This initiative is the first of its kind and means two things: zero waste and fresh, local beer. We very much look forward to seeing customers, old and new, in 2018, and to the brewery becoming a hub of great conversations and memories, and perhaps the start of an important zero-waste movement propelled by Growler Swap and great artisan beers.

The New Year will also see the launch of a separate Growler Swap website which will allow customers to place orders online for same day delivery of fresh beer to their home. Please go to our events page to see where you can Swap this month.
