In this episode, we have a discussion with Lance Shaner, co-founder and owner with Mark Schwarz, of Omega Yeast Labs. They’ve been having a huge impact on the homebrew scene not only due to their high viability, high cell count liquid yeast packs, but because they are offering such a variety of flavors with their strains. Tonight, we have a set of experiments we did with their Voss, Hothead, and Hornindal Kveik offerings that we will be discussing, as well as simply having Lance enlighten us about the company and their offerings, particularly the background and possibilities of the Norwegian Kveiks.
In this episode, we dive into a discussion of Stubby’s recent trip to Germany and Nigel’s recent trip to England--all while we sample a few of the beers they brought back! Stubby had a great time visiting Ireks, but he also was there for a hop harvest and more. Nigel hit up a variety of breweries, got some interviews, and searched for a bunch of beers. Here, we try a set of Bitters he brought back and see what kind of trouble he got into. So, put on your fancy lederhosen and grab a plate of bangers and mash because it’s show time!
