Chad Yakobson, MSc.
Brewing and Distilling
I’m a Colorado native, craft beer enthusiast and the Owner/Brewer of Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project. The research contained throughout this site is a collection of lab work and fermentation trials that was the topic of my dissertation for an MSc. degree in Brewing and Distilling from the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling located at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. I’ve always been fascinated with the Biochemistry behind yeast fermentation. Studying Brettanomyces spp. gave me the chance to learn more about a yeast species which is relatively understudied in the brewing industry and gain a complex understanding of its fermentative behavior.
