On the question of Why Yeast? Wye Not.

That's to say: it's pronounced Why Yeast. It is, in fact, a regional
pun, because Wyeast was the local Indian name for Mt Hood, which one can
see from the window of the lab and which appears on the label. As one
person has commented, though, it's kind of like calling your business
Yahweh Yeast and I'm sure there are a few people around who consider
this use of the name sacriligeous.

Patrick: please, if you will, post the listed ingredients for some of
the other New Ulm beers, particularly the wheat beer and their pilsner.
Thanks.
