Experimental Brewing podcast Episode 23

https://www.experimentalbrew.com/podcast/episode-23-great-hop-whirlpool-bainbridge

Busy
Episode this time! Crammed with like - additional feedback to last
episode’s Staling results. Seems like some of you have been using scary
old grain! In the pub we stop and talk a while about Denny’s Hop School
experiences (more on those later), the law in California and the
crushing “loss” of Bosteels Brewery to ABI. (Maybe they should be
Boo-steels now?) and one brewery’s response to the recent PR campaign to
try and make everyone feel better about the buyouts.

We swing by
the brewery to talk about Drew’s recent Saison yeast tasting - which
you can find online. In the library we visit a couple of papers on yeast
genetics.

In the lab, we’re happy to announce our next great
experiment - brought to you by our sponsors, the American Homebrewer’s
Association and NikoBrew.com. We’re going to get a whole squad of
homebrewers making up some hoppy beers and having them analyzed and
tasted! See the recipe and experiment writeup for details. We’re super
stoked for this!

Then Denny goes and talks to the folks out of
Whirlpool’s W Labs about their soon to launch all in one fermenter,
fridge, kegerator - the Vessi. Then he heads off to the posh environs of
Bainbridge Island WA to talk with Russell Evertt of Bainbridge Brewing.
Listen and find out what stout and noodles have to do with each other.

Then
in Something Other Than Beer - we lament 2016’s continuing losses -
this time with Gene Wilder. Then Drew shares Sia’s new video for “The
Greatest” which is a bit of a gut punch. Lastly, to leave on a happy
note - Drew also mentions Comixology for all your comic enjoyment.

Finally
Denny drops a tip about how best to dry your hops. The key - a little
bit of heat, but not too much if you want to preserve all the good oils!
