Fungi that could be used for brewing beverages?
    #2168979 - 12/08/03 02:32 PM (13 years, 14 hours ago)

Besides yeast. I got this Idea as I was dozing off this morning.

I want to try replacing yeast in a beer recipe with a mycelial culture of some other, probably fruitbody forming, fungus. I know some fungi put off CO2 and might actually be able to produce some carbonation.

Any candidates for species that might make for an interesting fermented beverage?

look here :laugh:

not exactly in accord with your goal of carbonation, but interesting to read.

it may be that some Acetobacter species can be used to ferment a beverage without the symboitic yeasts.

I think all mushrooms put off CO2 (I'm not sure but I think alcohol too). The only thing is that yeasts are more efficient in converting sugars to alcohol and CO2 then higher fungi.
A fermented drink from medicinal mushrooms might be very interesting - just be careful for contaminants before you test such drink. You should pasteurize it before!
