The Brew Is Out There!

We had a question come in regarding "Holiday beers" - For Denny, that's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter. For Drew - that's Falconsclaws. We're pulling together two separate episodes to review Denny's quick turnaround holiday gift beer and the Falcons' not so quick monster lager beer, that's due to be brewed on Dec 6!

The American Brown Ale feels like almost a thing of the past, but how can you make this foundational style of American craft beer? Drew talks with Wayne Wambles of Cigar City Brewing about lessons learned from the multi-award winning Maduro Brown and where it both reflects and differs from the nebulous idea of the style.

Buffering capacity, acids, salt concentrations, "measurements expressed as" and temperature add to a mix of questions that baffle even experienced brewers. We sit down with Martin Brungard to work through common questions we see online to see if we can get answers!
