The Brew Is Out There!

STYLE SHOW

This episode we give Denny's voice a rest as Drew explores one of his favorite beers to absolutely crush. (Yes, we know the irony of just talking about crushable on the other show, but if any beer style is crushable in a way that leaves you feeling respectable - it's cream ale). So sit back and let Drew tell you the story of Cream Ale - an American Original!

The Brew Is Out There!

What's this? What's this? It's a new show from us! The Brew Files is our quick hit (~30 minutes) show dedicated to a specific brewing topic. No news, new extraneous guffawing and jawing - one topic, all beer, let's do this. Every week will tackle particular recipes, styles, techniques or ingredients.

The Great Purge - Does a Full Liquid Purge of a Keg Protect Hop Aroma Better

It's time to test out the validity of another of Drew's favorite techniques - keg purging.

Breweries spend a lot of time worrying over removing as much oxygen possible from their packages (bottles/kegs). Why? It's pretty well established both in tradition and science that oxygen is destructive to beer flavor and aroma pretty quickly. So packaging brewers do everything they can to reduce O2 levels after their intial injection of oxygen post chilling.

Does purging a keg with CO2 protect hop aroma over time compared to an unpurged keg.
