    S.2 E.17 - Quality... Grain to Glass

    S.2 E.17 - Quality... Grain to Glass

    Beer is considered food and should be treated that way. Whether you are homebrewing or making thousands of barrels a year, it ends up in people’s bodies. So, parts of the production process, packing, holding, and transporting beer, are regulated.

    Today’s guests are Jan Landry, Food Safety Manager at Canada Malting Company, and Steve Harrah, Quality Services Manager at Country Malt Group. They talk about food safety related to ingredients and materials before arrival at breweries or distilleries and proper cleanliness and storage at facilities.

    S.2 E.16 - Hawaiian Shirt Day

    Today we're going to switch it up a bit and talk more about homebrews and recipe formulation. We celebrate our podcast birthday today, so it's time for some cake, beer, and good conversation. 

    Our guests have 50 plus years of combined knowledge working in the brewing industry and are plugged into the latest craft beer topics. Oh, and remember, next Friday is Hawaiian shirt day. So, you know, if you want to go ahead and wear a Hawaiian shirt and jeans as you join us for a more casual, less Lumberg episode of the Brew Deck. 

    We guarantee that all of today's guests have more than 15 pieces of flair.

    S.2 E.15 - Fresh Hops of Yakima

    S.2 E.15 - Fresh Hops of Yakima

    In Yakima Valley, born and raised

    Trellises are where they spend most of their days

    Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all year 

    With a beautiful view of Mt. Ranier

    When a couple of guys grabbed their harvesting gear

    Started making all the bines disappear

    Getting instantly frozen, YCH cheered,

    "You're being frozen, shipped, and used in fresh hop beers."

    Fresh hops; once reserved for those breweries within 1-2 days of transit. Thanks to Instant Quick Freeze (IQF), fresh hops are now available to brewers worldwide! 

    In today's episode, JT Wattenberg from Yakima Chief Hops discusses how using the IQF process preserves those sought-after, "right off the bine" flavors and aromas, how much fresh hops to use per barrel, and much more. 

    We also had the pleasure of speaking about fresh hops with Ben Edmonds of Breakside Brewery in Portland, Oregon. We cover how long they've been brewing beer with fresh hops, where they get them, and what "shattered hops" are.
