Matt Curtis is an author, blogger, and beer lover who is the author of Modern British Beer and Pellicle Magazine. He joins us for a jaunt through the world of Modern British Beer. We talk about where it came from, and where its going. Its also probably the quietist you’ll ever hear the 4 of us. Great talking to Matt, he’s welcome back when his next book is written, that is for sure.
In episode 37, due to dry january and covid Owen and Chris discuss their plans for the year, and have a few beers. A non-scripted meander through many topics and beers we’re gonna brew and Owen declares his need for a brewing calendar and almost gets kicked off the podcast…
Like buses, when you havent had one for a while, 2 episodes turn up in 3 minutes…
Owen and Chris review another couple of beers and shoot the breeze about life in general. 2 beers this time cos it was a Saturday and we could!
Hope you enjoy the new podcast, we’ll be back with a full lengther when we can get the 4 of us together. Term start time is a bit of a nightmare tbh, so hopefully it should be soon!
FInally got some time to edit and upload these 2. Episode 1 was lost due to the issues we’ve been having with the software we’ve been using, but it looks to be sorted now, so heres a short one to whet your appetite for the next ones coming your way.
Chris and Owen review a commercial beer each, it was late on a thursday so just a quick one, it was a school night after all, hopefully this should get you in the mood for the next one coming in about 20 mine time.
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.
