In this episode, we invited our friends Amy Jones and Steve and Vicki Brown to sit in and talk with us about winemaking from ingredient kits and wine made from scratch using hand picked fruit (for example, mustang grapes). With a kit you can have a 5 to 6 gallon batch prepped and in a fermenter in around 30 minutes. Then, about a month later you’ll have 30 bottles ready to drink or lay down. While wine from scratch can take a little more time and effort. But your reward is that it’s your creation. And you can apply that knowledge to more than just grapes. Hopefully our discussion helps you take that first step into new territory.
Episode 17 is all about the regular and imperial version of the standard English and American IPA. We cover some of the history and dive into some of the things you need to think about during recipe development to hit those target flavors you’re looking for in all three versions. Also, we have somelocal friends stop by who are working on their own podcast, Brew Styles.
