    Episode 130 - A New Way To Figure Out Hops

    Episode 130 - A New Way To Figure Out Hops

    We took a week off from hops, but we could never leave them for long. With all of the new ways of using hops, the IBU (which was already a lie) seems increasingly inadequate to reflect the modern beer experience. We're talking to our friends - Sam and Marko, from Grainfather - to discuss a new way to calculate the impact of our hop usage.

Great podcast

Genuinely nice guys talking about something they are passionate about. The show is relaxed and the experiments are both interesting and scientific, but kept to an understandable level. Good listening!
