The Brew is Out There!  

Knowledge Show 

When everything is going right, our fermentations run easily with a smooth transformation of sugar into ethanol and CO2. When things don't go right, well, our beer pays the price. In this episode, we'll look at the most common off-flavors we've encountered, what causes them and how to prevent/fix them. So, sit back, we're going off the rails...

SCIENCE TIME!

Sit back and relax, it's getting frosty in here! On this episode of the podcast, we breakdown the results of our Cryo/T-90 experiment. And since the results were so "weird" - we brought in some extra help in the form of some of the IGORs who helped with the podcast including Brad Macleod, Eric Pierce and Miguel Loza Brown. Together we talk what went right (and sometimes what went wrong with the brew days) and what we all thought of the Cryo beers (including some numbers courtesy of White Labs).
