Owen went on holiday for this one, so we needed someone with as sexy a voice, and as good a knowledge of beer, so we subbed in Chris Harrison-Hawkes AKA Harrybrew for a pod. This one should give you an insight into the world of commercial and homebrew recipe development, and how you can hone a recipe in to give you what you want.
So this isn’t a topic a lot of people cover, but after Tricky giving us a glimpse into his routine, we thought it might be good to cover this one in detail to dispel some myths and reasons why you shouldn’t use certain products without understanding the potential pitfalls.
Episode 23 of the podcast is a blast down the winding backroads of adjuncts and general beer additives, from citrus to cacao and everything in between. This is a good one, everyone is on form on this episode.
Thanks for listening, and please let us know what you think and what you want us to chat about. Leave us a message on the Facebook page or drop a comment on this post.
I guess podcasts are like buses sometimes, you wait an age for one and two arrive close together 😉 this episode wraps up the all grain series by looking at packaging options bottles, barrels, kegs and everything in between. We talk about the pros and cons of each and the different options they provide process wise.
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!’………
I slightly meandering journey through the process of mashing, we were both quite well oiled for this one so a few naughty words might have slipped out and the occasional rant but hopefully you will still enjoy it! In this episode we cover different types of mashing process, factors affecting mash performance and what we think is important to consider.
If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the information on Covid 19 in the news then maybe don’t listen to this one but we felt we had to have a chat about whats going on as its such a crazy and unprecedented event that is affecting all of us worldwide. Some of it is homebrewing related, a lot of it isn’t but we did this off the cuff and thats what we ended up with, please bear in mind we recorded this on the 17th of March and a lot of things have already changed drastically from that point. Most importantly look after yourselves and take the hint from the title!
p.s I did not edit out swearing in this episode, so not suitable for listening with children around.
