Four Brewers | The Homebrew Blowout
Season 2, Episode 1 – Happy New Year! This week, we’re kicking off Season 2 of the podcast with a whopper of a show, mostly dedicated to homebrew, and Daniel Cady joins us for another go-around.
We kick off the show with another Saison collaboration brew from John and Matt named Raincross Saison. Everyone enjoys it, more or less, but there isn’t much enthusiasm, and we do our best to completely pick it apart. John talks about his plan to condition it with the East Coast Yeast ECY34 brettanomyces blend, so we’ll surely revisit it in the future.
Next up, we have a tasty stovetop home brewed roggenbier named Rye Oh My! from Señor Nagel. Brewed as a quick, kitchen-sink beer for his holiday guests, everyone on the show enjoyed its easy drinking and bready yeast complexities. Greg also brought along a hoppy (reddish) IPA homebrew named Burning Ugly Christmas Sweaters that was…a bit…off…um… Finally from Greg, we revisit his Rye Saison that he fermented with the White Labs American Farmhouse Blend. We all enjoy it, but agree the brett needs more development time.
Finally, we finish off with an epic Going In Blind session. The beers for this long, awesome session were all supplied by good friends of Greg’s, Kristina and Steve Allison (Kristina is also a Patreon 4B patron–thanks!) We have some killer beers, and some not so killer beers, but good, sloppy times are had by all.
We’ve had a great response to our Patreon campaign thus far, and we’re totally stoked to have NINE Patrons supporting the show! We can’t thank them enough for the support and are humbled by their generosity.
