Bootleg Biology is an open source yeast (and wild bugs) project whose goal is to create the world’s most diverse library of microbes for the creation of fermented foods and beverages.

All microbes are sourced and isolated from “bootleg” sources such as: backyards, orchards, kombucha, yogurt, honey, fruit, bottle dregs, and whatever else we can get our hands on. Enthusiasts contribute their yeast or house cultures to the project, with the shared goal of enriching the Bootleg Biology community’s  access to diverse microbes. Bootleg Biology is the first organization to pioneer the collection and cultivation of official yeast strains for U.S. cities and states as part of its Local Yeast Project, beginning with the original S. arlingtonesis.

Education of basic DIY techniques related to the science of fermentation, specifically the capturing and isolating of yeast is at the core of Bootleg Biology’s mission.

Bootleg_2To further our mission and expand our library we created the Backyard Yeast Wrangling Tool Kit which includes everything the experimental homebrewer needs to capture wild bugs, create agar plates, and isolate wild yeast.
