Today Patrick and I are going to brew a couple batches of beer.* Yesterday we podcasted. You may listen to our disquisition, erudite as always**, on barrel-aged beers. You will hear Cantillon’s Jean Van Roy talk about the flavor of old wood, and Samuel Smith’s Steve Barrett talk about how to cure a brand-new oak cask. Among, of course, many other fascinating revelations***. Enjoy!
* Pilsner and IPA. We do a pilsner every year, relying on primitive lagering tech–Oregon’s mild winters. We’re getting a little late in the season for that, so we’re probably going to end up with a fruitier-than-usual lager. Hey, it’s homebrew.
