In this episode, we cover the finings for beer clarity that we missed out on in the last episode. Plus, we’ll dig into our next Belgian style by discussing Category 25A the Belgian Blond and Category 26A the Abbey Single style of beer.
In this episode, we invited Barrett Tillman--head of brewing operations at Deep Ellum Brewing Co. in Dallas--in the studio to tell us about some of the things DEBC has recently been up to and their 6th year of the Labor of Love homebrewing competition. Then we continue our Belgian beer discussion by diving into BJCP category 26C, the Tripel style. Plus, we also talk about how you can measure your ABV using your refractometer and an app or online calculator.
In this episode, we discuss a subject many of y’all have asked about since we started the show, brewing a lighter lager. Not specifically a ‘Light American Lager’ or ‘International Pale Lager’ as the name might suggest, but instead the less malty, lighter bodied and colored lagers that many of us enjoy in summer. Those crisp, refreshing, easy-to-drink-a-case-on-the-lake type of lagers. And to help us discuss this topic, we have Matt Morriss and Tom Anderson of Rabbit Hole Brewing back in studio--as they recently released their Mexican-style lager, El Canejo. Plus, they’ve had a few changes and made a few new plans out at the brewery that we wanted to catch up with them about. So, let’s tap into some brewing knowledge and see if we can help you brew some of those lighter range lagers!
