In this episode, we follow up on our recipe formulation episode with a discussion about selecting the best yeast for the job. At Texas Brewing Inc. we regularly preach that the yeast are the most important ingredient in the process because when you make your recipe and it yields wort, it's the yeast that actually makes the beer. Which means that there are several factors to take into account when you select the yeast for your latest brew like attenuation, alcohol tolerance, ester and phenol production, flocculation, and more. - See more at: http://www.txbrewing.com/storeblog/
In this episode, Fritz Rahr, CEO and Co-Founder of Rahr and Sons Brewing Company and member of the Rahr malting family joined us to discuss a little bit about malts and the malting process AND all the badass progress they’ve made at his brewery over the last few years. Maltsters are an important part of the brewing process because they’re the ones who have developed the vast variety of malts you use to homebrew. And that variety has only grown over the last decades to the point that home and pro brewers have more well-modified malt now than ever. Plus, Fritz tells us the history of Rahr and Sons, THE leader of the current craft beer revolution in Fort Worth, TX. - See more at: http://www.txbrewing.com/storeblog/
In this episode, we had our friend and international craft and home brewer Doug Zent come in to sit down and discuss his unique situation. You see, Doug loves to brew and he travels often for work. One of the main places he’s spent the most time on his work trips was Russia. Do you know what he found there? A growing craft beer and homebrew scene that gave him an opportunity to form a partnership with a group of local brewers to help open a brewery on the outskirts of Moscow called Victory Art Brew.
In this episode, we discuss brewing for winter when you need great styles for the winter months of the year. Or of course, Fall, depending on where you live. Either way, we’re talking about big beers, malty beers, spiced holiday beers, and often enough, beers with hefty amounts of roasted malts. The kind of beverages that you want to curl up next to a fire with on a cozy, cold night. Or if you’re in Texas, those days that everything freezes over and the cities shut down. - See more at: http://www.txbrewing.com/storeblog/?p=1447&preview=true#sthash.DX41XhWL.dpuf
