  • Episode 130 -- Style Hour: Sweet Stouts feat. Panther Island Brewing

    22/01/2019 Duración: 02h31min

    In this episode, we cover BJCP style category 16A Sweet Stout, that dark, rich, sweet, and slightly roasty version of a stout of varying ABV levels that’s perfect for an autumn or winter evening. It’s listed under category 16 Dark British Beer, but where it may not be modified as often overseas, it’s frequently found with additions here in the states. Why? Because it’s a great base style to work with a large variety of flavors. Plus, we have Ryan McWhorter of Panther Island Brewing Co in studio with us to help us talk about this versatile style and one of their more popular brews is Sweet Fang, a seasonal chocolate peanut butter milk stout.

Then we get into the discussion of splitting batches for experimenting to get the most from a recipe while trying a version from Nigel. We had a few technical issues with the equipment at the beginning of the show that lead to losing the first five or so minutes of Brandon's audio and more or less the first 30 minutes of live video on YouTube. But, we do have that audio and video in the related Facebook video for the episode.

  • Episode 128 -- Beers from Afar: Dark British Ales

    04/12/2018 Duración: 02h26min

    In this episode, we continue our coverage of the beers Nigel brought back from his recent visit to England and hear about some of the places he went and how the beer scene is there. Tonight’s beers have a strong focus on the darker British ales, like porters and stouts, but there are a few others in there too, including some that were bottled as he was there. Plus, since he’s the traveling type, he stopped in to visit the new digs of our friends down at Guadalupe Brewing Co in New Braunfels, TX and brought back a few samples of their recent batches that we want to dig into. So, pour yourself a cask ale and put on your best S&M gear to kick back because we’re gonna get British!

    24/11/2018 Duración: 02h20min

    In this episode, we have a discussion with Lance Shaner, co-founder and owner with Mark Schwarz, of Omega Yeast Labs. They’ve been having a huge impact on the homebrew scene not only due to their high viability, high cell count liquid yeast packs, but because they are offering such a variety of flavors with their strains. Tonight, we have a set of experiments we did with their Voss, Hothead, and Hornindal Kveik offerings that we will be discussing, as well as simply having Lance enlighten us about the company and their offerings, particularly the background and possibilities of the Norwegian Kveiks.

    22/10/2018 Duración: 02h07min

    In this episode, we discuss BJCP style category 8B Schwarzbier and discuss a few examples we can get locally.

We will also hear a little about Stubby’s recent trip to Germany and do some side by side comparisons of German brewed beer bought in Germany with the same beer bought here to see what differences we might notice.

  • Episode 123 -- Those Fast Lagers and Hop-o-Rama #5

    26/09/2018 Duración: 01h59min

    In this episode, we talk about fast turnaround primary fermentation for lager beers or what is commonly called Fast Lagering. It’s sort of a misnomer because lagering means cold storage, which does take time to properly do its thing. But it takes far less time when you work the primary fermentation of a lager yeast strain to get the best results in the fastest time possible, so you get better, more drinkable lagers in weeks instead of months. Plus, we another Hop-o-Rama that covers a few of the more popular high alpha varieties that work as bittering hops as well as finishing hops.

Which will include a listener requested discussion about the possibilities for styles that can be quickly soured--like Berliner Weisse, Gose, and Sour Golden Ales--for a refreshing summer treat.

    12/08/2018 Duración: 02h59min

It’s most often fruit and wood, but we hope to branch out into a few other interesting areas and lately The Collective has been catching some nationwide notoriety for some of their experiments.

    In this episode, we finally have our follow up to the NEIPA brew challenge we started a while back with Turning Point Beer.

Well, tonight we have the resultant beers in studio and to compare them and let the guys from Turning Point weigh in on them.
