Little Earth Project: the natural way in Suffolk

0

Tom Norton, brewer and founder of Little Earth Project, Mill Green, UK describes himself as harvesting the power of wild yeast and the bounty of the farms in Suffolk to produce regional ales with a punch.

Norton mainly produces mixed fermentation beers using wild yeasts sourced mainly from the lees of their own cider, Castlings Heath Cottage, as well as organic hops and barley that they grow near the brewery. They also forage in the local area for fruit and other ingredients.

As Norton says they produce small batches, between 200-800 litres at a time, which are then moved to wooden oak barrels for three months to three years.

This natural, organic approach also means they source the hops and barley from the local area, even growing some of it themselves while running a nearby pub The White Horse Inn. 

The Beer Idiots interviewed Norton at BxlBeerFest 22.
