Mashing Dark Malts - Brewing With Style 01-10-17

1/9/2017
More
Today's show is full of a few things, but mainly beer. We talk today about the practice of adding your dark malts at the end of the mash versus keeping them in there for the entire thing. It's a much-debated topic, with many people on either side swearing to their cats that their way is the best. JP brewed two batches of his Oatmeal Stout, one with grains at the mash and one with the dark grains added at the end. Which will dominate? Find out!

Jamil starts this episode of Brewing With Style by talking about Beevo's love for Brad at Brewer's Hardware. Needless to say she's uncomfortable with it, which is always funny. Then we jump right into the topic for today - Secret Beers! We had two beers chosen for us secretly before the show, and our goal is to try and guess what styles these beers fall under. It's harder than it sounds! JP and Tasty come up with some crazy guesses, and Jamil ... well he does what you'd expect him to.

9/25/2016
More
Coming off of Jamil's recent trip to Asia, we decided to revisit the Foreign Extra Stout category. Notoriously hard to find in the U.S. Jamil was able to track down some pretty neat beer and mule them back for us - including Guinness's version! We all had a clear favorite in the studio, which makes it even more painful to know that it will be nearly impossible to find on our side of the pond. Oh well, such is beer!

We open the show today waxing poetic about how old Jamil is getting and how he has forgotten so much stuff that he has to refer to his own books to remind him of certain things. Then we jump into today's style, Trappist Single Ale (category 26A in the 2015 BJCP guidelines), which was another style requested by a listener looking for more information on this hard-to-find style.

First off, though, we discuss what it means to have a commercial example ready, and how that affects the ability to understand and interpret the BJCP guidelines. After a bit of banter about the regionalism inferred by the name, we dig into the closest commercial...
