    I am looking to make a very old beer style that originated in Wisconsin (Wisconsin Weizen) and I want to make it a few different ways including, hopefully, with a Wisconsin Strain of beer yeast. As far as I know Lakefront has been the only person to isolate one of those, but I thought I would ask the guild to see if anyone else may have or taken the time to isolate a wild Wisconsin strain of beer yeast that I may be able to make a starter off of. Please let me know!

    Also if you have interest in learning about the Wisconsin Weizen you can check this out: https://distantmirror.wordpress.com/2011/02/15/ale-through-the-ages-wisconsin-weizen-ale/

    I don’t know if this fits the bill? https://www.theyeastbay.com/brewers-yeast-products/midwestern-ale

    I believe there is a yeast bank at UW Madison. I couldn’t find any info on it via google, but Steve Coon could probably help you with that.

    Justin, I isolated a couple of yeast strains from a wild fermentation I did. One tastes like a Belgian ale strain. The other I will be trying out this weekend but I expect it to be a little funky/sour. Let me know if you are interested.
