In this episode, we cover some previous territory and revisit the basics of packaging and priming to fill in some listener requests. We know that many of you have questions about the best methods and especially, how you might--and we stress might--be able to save something that didn’t turn out as planned. Plus, we also get into a new segment describing a few details about malts and the differences between some of what’s available that we will call Malt-o-Rama. Other than that, the usual shenanigans and arseholery that you all know and love us for.
In this episode, we address several questions we recently received from listeners, and dive back into water and water treatments. Water treatments can help bring out a variety of different flavors in your beer and Nigel and Mikey recently did an experiment with one of Nigel’s favorite clone recipes to find out if they could get the hop flavor to match the original beer from across the pond. We then discuss how different crystal malt additions effect that beer as well. And speaking of well, we look at a water report from the well water at Brandon’s new house and address a listener question about working with well water.
In this episode, we wanted to introduce another new segment for beginning and intermediate brewers coming from the point of view of our resident Brit called Making Plans for Nigel. Perhaps some of you recognize the song reference. Basically, Nigel comes at us with a list of questions that he had as a beginning brewer through to his current practices. It's a broad range of subject matter to cover, so we're sure to revisit his questions again in the future! After that, we also hit our 4th installment of Hop-o-Rama!
