In this episode, we hit some more coverage of the basics of developing your own recipes for the first time. So, if you’re thinking of trying to branch out from kits or online recipes, we discuss those as your starting points and where you could take it from there. Also, tonight we follow up on episode 28 as we have Doug Zent back in the studio with us to talk about the brewery Victory Art Brew on the outskirts of Moscow. But this time, we actually have his Russian brewing partners in house too! They’re fresh off a Jester King collaboration brew and were enjoying some Texas beers.
In this episode, we get style specific and talk about BJCP category 14 Scottish Ales, including Scottish Light, Scottish Heavy, and Scottish Export. Plus, we still include everyone’s favorite, the Wee Heavy, which is actually now listed under category 17 Strong British Beers. And because we’re talking Scottish ales, we also follow up with a discussion of the Scottish ale recipes we developed on air with Shannon from Shannon Brewing Co in episode 65. We all finally had a chance to brew them and give them a little time to age, so it’s time we discussed our results.
