Experimental Brew - Episode 8 - A Southern Whirl - is now up!
« on: February 17, 2016, 03:46:34 PM »
Episode 8 of our podcast is now up! On this episode we discuss beer news, beer politics, beer conferences and actual science. Then we talk about beer ingredients and Marshall Schott joins us to discuss the results of our newest experiment about hop whirlpool temperature - does it matter? We go to the Tampa Bay Area and talk with Brian Fenstermacher of Southern Brewing & Winemaking about how to run a home-brew shop and a 24 tap nano-brewery with a never ending variety. Seriously, you’ll want to listen to hear how Brian has structured the brewery to run multiple simultaneous brews without getting lost! Then it’s Q&A time, a quick tip and Marshall drops a little jam on the something non-beery side of the house to close us out.

Great episode. My only critique is the bumper music is loud compared to the speech. I find that I need to lower the volume about 30% for comfort.

That's an interesting evaluation - I don't feel like we did anything different. Well, wait, we did add a new segment - the Brewery/Ingredient segment. We were both fretting that the thing was too long, but try as we might we couldn't find a naturally cutting point for the Southern interview that didn't leave things all catty wumpus.

Thanks, I'll watch that in the future.

I guess I mean it just flowed nice. It felt like the first one where you guys really hit your stride.

Cool - we certainly feel like we're moving in a groove now. Less re-doing, less issues making everything happen. (Except the dang phone patch)

The guest from Tampa was pretty cool - it was interesting to hear how he maximizes his nanobrewery.

A) Thanks for the mention of the gravitational wave discovery. I've been out of the loop when it comes to news and media recently, so I probably wouldn't have found out about this until Neil Tyson did a StarTalk episode on it.

B) I might have mentioned this elsewhere, but your experimental results jive with my own recent experiment in that there is definitely something different with a low-temp whirlpool. I will be experimenting with this a lot more in the future to see if I can nail down how this works within in my own recipes. In particular, I'm going to try this in recipes where I'd typically use a 170F whirlpool to see how the flavor and aroma compares.

C) You should call it the "Outlier, outlier, pants on fire" award for any IGORs who are way outside the rest of the data for an experiment.
