Episode 32 – The IBU Is A Lie

In the feedback we tackle Denny's favorite Myths according to our friends and some early feedback about our new show – The Brew Files!
Reminder our charity of is choice is the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society. Let's try and raise enough funds via Patreon to hit a cool thousand by July!
Episode 36 is an all Q&A episode – so get your questions in at questions@experimentalbrew.com
In the pub, we talk ABI's latest beer “innovations”, what Asahi taking over Pilsner Urquell from SAB Miller will mean for the original Pilsner and the annual hop crop report and what we can expect to see.
In the brewery, Denny covers his recent experience with the Grainfather.
In the lab, we finally get to the results of our Great IBU Experiment brought to you by NikoBrew.com, the AHA, Oregon Brew Lab and the IGORs! First you'll hear from Dana Garves of Oregon Brew Lab describing her journey into Beer Science and how she opened OBL. She'll describe the testing she performed for us and even offer more testing suggestions. And then we bring in special guest star of the episode – the man behind the equation – Dr. Glenn Tinseth.
We tackle a few more of your questions in our Q&A segment and then a listen offers a quickly tips about winter brewing before we close out with Drew's new book – Eight Flavors!
