Beer Made from Belly Button Lint

To brew beer, you need yeast. And where should you find yeast? The truth lies within yourself--and specifically, your belly button.

7 Cent Brewery in Australia has developed a new beer from the bacteria found in the belly button lint of one of the founders. It's called Belly Button Beer. 9 News describes it:

As for how Belly Button Beer tastes, the brewery has described it as being "in the style of a new world-ish Belgian-ish Witbier with fresh orange zest and toasted coriander seeds".

"The yeast exhibits qualities of Belgian beer with the key characteristics being spiciness, clove and light banana esters. The orange zest and coriander seeds were used to help complement the yeast and a calculated amount of Riwaka and Mosaic hops were added to increase the citrus qualities and give it a refreshing hop kick," they said.

"Four different grains were also used to add both body and complexity including: barley, wheat, oats and rye."

This isn't the first time 7 Cent Brewery has used unique ingredients in a beer recipe:

The brewery also made an oyster stout, and launched a 'hipster beer' at GABS 2015, which was made with quinoa, chia seeds and kale.

Proof that the whole craft beer craze is out of control and approaching the "Bubble" stage. And at normal pricing approaching $12 bucks a six pack it can't be too soon.
