Episode 40 - The Quality of Transformation

drew's picture

New opening to the show this time through. Let's see how you like it (let us know!)

In the pub, we stop by and take about brewery charities and one in particular for Denny's area. We talk about one previous guest's new "kid" rules and the response, before we tackle the big Wicked news of the week and the really insidious piece that virtually no one is talking about behind the scenes.

Biotransformation - Dry Hop at Krausen vs. Dry Hop at Rest

Our brewing partner in "science", Marshall "Brulosophy" Schott released results of a biotransformation experiment here. In it he brewed a NE IPA recipe that was double dry hopped. Two batches brewed with the first fermenting out for a few days before the second was brewed. The second batch received the first dose of dry hops while the beer was at high krausen. The first batch received it's dry hops after the beer was done fermenting.

Look Ma, I'm in the Library!

A few months back, I was contacted by Tiah Edmunson-Morton of Oregon State University and the Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives. In an interesting turn of events, they wanted to talk to me about Oregon, homebrewing and my part in the whole scene. They are even archiving all the work we've done and adding it to their collection which includes the pioneering and humbling work of Fred Eckhardt.

The Brew Is Out There!

RECIPE SHOW

On this week's episode of the Brew Files, it's time to pour one out for the parents in the brew world. Drew sits down with Tiffany Ashrafi, a Los Angeles area homebrewer, beer fanatic and mom-to-be, about her unique spin on making a beer for mom. With Mom covered, Denny and Drew sit down to talk about a beer for dad to have when tots are all grown up

Stand back everyone and hold our beer - we're going for a shorter show today! (Suspect Denny might need a temporary break from editing or something)

We do the feedback circuit, including a visit to the Correctional Department of Corrections, and then hit the pub for our recollections of Session Beer Day, some of our favorite April Fool's pranks from brewers (including one that wasn't actually a prank) and the upcoming Big Brew

Episode 37 - Answering Disaster's Call

A little different show this week and we warn you - it's a long one! We hit three main topics today, but first feedback.

With April Fool's Day right around the corner, it's time to explore how foolish we brewers are with a bunch of disasters stories! Stay safe people!

Then it's back to the Jeopardy stage where we questions answers about Recipes, Water and Troubleshooting - wait, strke that, reserve it.

The Brew Is Out There!

PROCESS SHOW

On this week's episode of the Brew Files, Drew and Denny tackle a question dropped on Facebook by listener Dan Tomkins. Dan asked just how do we tackle a new recipe - something we've never brewed before? Well, sit back and we'll walk you through just how we do the voodoo that is recipe creation.

Sticky Hands!

To start the show, we hit the feedback slush pile, including a voicemail feedback about the Walmart lawsuit.

In the pub, it's a little different today as we sit down with Nick Arzner of Block 15 to drink one of Denny's favorite beers - Sticky Hands IPA. We discuss the origins of the beer and the secrets behind the powerful hop character the beer carries (pro tip - new fancy hop powders)

Episode 35 - The Mead Is In Session

We start with a round of feedback including a question about a potentially new style guideline and a reflection on one listener's experiment in making Cool Ranch Beer!

 

In the pub, rumblings are a foot about the Return of the Wrath of Conn at this year's HomeBrewCon in Minneapolis.  We tackle the problematic notion of "fake craft" beer and All About Beer's newly announced policy on sexist beer names.
