Shout-out to Doug Piper
« on: May 27, 2022, 03:38:01 pm »
A shout-out to Doug Piper @POPTOP for another wonderful Crowcast.
None other then the head brewer at Schlenkerla talks about Rauchbier in general and their beer.
The best brewers/ teachers in the world are in his podcasts.

I am so glad he's in the Governing Committee.

Check out also the MBAA podcasts. A lot of great information there as well.

I completely agree about  Doug's shows. Just not sure what that has to do with him being on GC.

Quite a lot IMHO.
The relationships he builds with the best brewers in the world can help the AHA in requesting contributions from these brewers.

I long for more advanced brewing knowledge from the AHA. I hope Doug can help in this regard.

I would suggest you run for GC to learn more about how it works and what it does.

You do like to argue. Seems you have to say something about everything.

I am not biting.
Won't get into an argument.

I am happy Doug is in the GC.
Cheers,

As am I.  I was not arguing, just trying to point out that you may not understand how the GC works.

This would also be a good time to point out that Zymurgy is always looking for writers and ideas.  If you want to write something or suggest someone who would, contact Dave Carpenter.

☝ this.
It was a similar prompt that first got me to give it a try. Zymurgy (and BYO) articles been financing my equipment and ingredients purchases for over eight years.  Currently I'm waiting to hear back on a recent query to Dave.

Probably not the best thread to address the comment, but here it goes:
They still decoct their lager, branded Original.
The don't decoct their new pale beer branded Helles (which as you know, just means pale color).
As a curiosity, in the EBS competition last year, they didn't enter the Helles as a Munich Helles but as a European Lager (got Gold for it); clearly an admission that their Helles is not a Helles (if you pardon the pun).

Supposedly even decoction proponents approved of this beer according to the brewmaster interview.
