Four Brewers | Homebrew Hootenanny
Season 3, Episode 18 – This week: ALL HOMEBREW. Natalie DeNicholas and John Ryti are also joining us!
It’s been a slow year for the 4B gang in regards to homebrewing, but today we’re going to make up for the last five months in one episode! Today we’re drinking five homebrews from four brewers (get it?).
First up is John’s triumphant return to brewing, Oat Boner. This beer was inspired by his wildly popular oatmeal IPA, Oats n’ Hoes, but is stripped down and simplified. There are three ingredients in this brew: 2-row malt, oats, and mosaic hops (a LOT of Mosaic hops…). While the beer is a hit with everyone at the table, John thinks it could use a few tweaks.
Next up is a beer from one of our special guests, Natalie DeNicholas. We got a lot of positive feedback when she was on the show previously, and now she’s back! This time she brought a super-crushable lager made with Thai rice. It’s really good! Also, shout out to Sanctum Brewing Co. (that’s where Natalie works) and the legendary Maltose Falcons (where Natalie is the Burger-Meister).
Next up are two beers from Greg. One is a variant of a beer that Greg brought a few episodes back while the other is a new beer that he’s looking for some advice on. SPOILER ALERT. Don’t try to ferment a beer with expired yeast. That is NO BUENO!
Next up is a Red IPA from long time friend of the show, John Ryti. This is beer was made with a new type of malt called Red X that apparently will give your beer a red hue without imparting a whole lot of that red-caramel flavor that is usually associated with traditional “red” malt. It’s quite tasty, to say the least.
We wrap up the show with a canned homebrew (how rad is that?!) that Natalie brought over from her homebrew club, Maltose Falcons. Saison du Mai is a saison (obvi), which is right up Matt’s alley, made with a bunch of fun, tropical ingredients.
BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.
