A slightly shambolic (due to over consumption of Impy Stouts) discussion of Porters and Stouts, what are they, where did they come from and how can you brew them. Plus the triumphant return of el’duderino himself Tricky!
Since my brother from another mother Tricky currently has a crotchfruit and house moving issue to resolve, I’ve recruited a guest cohost for this episode in Andy Lynch of The High Road Brewery channel on YouTube to come on and talk about the electric breweries we’ve built using craftbeerpi.
Tricky hasnt massaged this episode with his special blend of 11 herbs, spices and patchouli oil, but it still sounds good! Join us in the wonderful world of CraftBeerPi and building your own remote controlled electric brewery.
The next stage in our all grain process series takes us to the boil, we cover all the aspects related to sterilising, hop utilisation, hot and cold break, off flavours and more but you will probably remember this one more for the ‘Hedgehog incident!’………
Strap in folks this is a long one! This episode we try and break down water chemistry to its key elements. We also review our first beermail from a listener and take another commercial break! P.s we have given up on trying to censor the pods as it basically takes to much time in editing, so please be aware the odd expletive might be present.
This episode discusses the various methods for harvesting and propagating yeast so you can brew numerous batches from a single yeast pack. We also give a few shout outs to people who have been supporting us during the first few episodes and introduce a new feature ‘The Commercial Break’ where we each sample and review a commercially available beer.
In this episode we discuss some common off flavours that you might experience while home-brewing and strategies to avoid them. Let us know what you think of the episode, anything that we could improve or got wrong or any questions that you have from this discussion. If you are listening to this via iTunes etc please subscribe/follow, rate the podcast and/or leave a review if possible.
This episodes explores the wide and wonderful topic of hops in beer, why we use them, how we use them and which hops we personally love to brew with.
