In this episode we hit the hybrid between the classic German style of sweet wheaty Hefeweizen and the Belgian style of spicy zesty Witbier. A wheat heavy hazy pale beer flavoured with orange peel and honey!
In this episode we embrace the smoke and brew a “Rauchbier”, a big smoky delicious and malty style from Bamburg. We’re also joined by Chris MacLennan, Cal’s co-host from The Space Jam Continuum, also part of the Kaiju.fm Network.
In this episode we use up all the little bits of leftover ingredients from other brews to make a “Pancake Beer”, a usually amber yet hoppy style that always changes (depending on what you have left). Good for those that hate waste!
In this special episode, instead of brewing at home we travel to Elusive Brewery to chat with owner and head brewer Andy Parker. On the brewday itself we look at his version of a Belgian Pale Ale (called “Plan B”) as well as talk about the brewery and his new book.
In this episode we take a look at the crisp refreshing world of pilsner lagers, focusing on the German interpretation of the style AND THEN the British interpretation of the German interpretation and… you get the idea.
In this episode we look at Mike’s favourite style of beer the Black IPA. Many despise it’s contradictory title, but inside the beer itself you’ll find two elements that go together better than expected, roasted malts and heavy hops.
In Final Gravity we take a look at the various beers we’ve brewed after they’re completed. Find out what went right, what went wrong and most importantly what we’ve learned on our journey to make better beer.
