Brewing Big Beers - Brewing With Style 02-23-17
We get a lot of questions about how to brew quality beers with a higher gravity. Sometimes the questions are simple, and other times they can be kind of complex. Today, we put our heads together and lay out everything you need to know about how to brew these big beers - fermentation, recipe formulation, mashing, and more!
Heretic Barrel Program - Brewing With Style 01-24-17
This week on Brewing With Style, we have a special guest join the show - the head of the Heretic Brewing Barrel Program, Chris! He came into the studio to talk about how he made his transition from homebrewer all the way to his current position alongside Jamil. We also chat about how he approaches blending and tasting beers from the barrel project, and how those get transformed into a final product. Tune in and learn about how Heretic tackles this complex and experimental part of producing great craft beer from barrels.
Mashing Dark Malts - Brewing With Style 01-10-17
Today's show is full of a few things, but mainly beer. We talk today about the practice of adding your dark malts at the end of the mash versus keeping them in there for the entire thing. It's a much-debated topic, with many people on either side swearing to their cats that their way is the best. JP brewed two batches of his Oatmeal Stout, one with grains at the mash and one with the dark grains added at the end. Which will dominate? Find out!

Jamil and Tasty get a surprise visit from Pete Slosberg, formerly of Pete's Wicked Ales, and his friend Ari. Ari makes some of the best homemade bread we've ever had and shared some bread making tips with us. Pete brought us his homemade malt balls and a drink made with some amazonian berries that made your mouth go weird. We also discussed what makes a beer a given style and a few other beery things with our two friends in this special episode of Brewing With Style.
Secret Beers Part 2 - Brewing With Style 11-15-16
We had so much fun with the last Secret Beers show that we had to come back with a Part Two. Beevo brings Jamil, Tasty, and JP two mystery beers during the show, and it's up to our brave hosts to guess the style. Which is much harder than it seems! This exercise is a good one to try at home, because it really tests your beer knowledge.
Shocking objectification of women
I was disgusted and horrified listening to the episode of foreign extra stout when the conversation turned to ‘women’s cut’ T-shirts. Some of the remarks made by Tasty were deeply offensive, calling women’s breasts ‘fun-bags’ and making remarks about stealing peeks down women’s tops. I felt female staff member present in the studio, who was clearly uncomfortable, and when asked if she was about to walk out, could only reply with ‘I’m just taking it all in’, which was another source of amusement for the men involved. I am so glad my son or anyone else I know didn’t overhear this.
