In this episode, we discuss the emerging Brut IPA sub-style with an example of the Social Kitchen recipe Greg brewed and one that Rahr and Sons brewed for their 14th anniversary party. Then we get into the discussion of splitting batches for experimenting to get the most from a recipe while trying a version from Nigel.
We had a few technical issues with the equipment at the beginning of the show that lead to losing the first five or so minutes of Brandon's audio and more or less the first 30 minutes of live video on YouTube. But, we do have that audio and video in the related Facebook video for the episode.
In this episode, we continue our coverage of the beers Nigel brought back from his recent visit to England and hear about some of the places he went and how the beer scene is there. Tonight’s beers have a strong focus on the darker British ales, like porters and stouts, but there are a few others in there too, including some that were bottled as he was there. Plus, since he’s the traveling type, he stopped in to visit the new digs of our friends down at Guadalupe Brewing Co in New Braunfels, TX and brought back a few samples of their recent batches that we want to dig into. So, pour yourself a cask ale and put on your best S&M gear to kick back because we’re gonna get British!
