The first Fermentation Beer & Brewing Radio Show of 2018 aired at 3pm on Sunday 28 January. As usual, it was a packed hour, full of hoppy flavour with just that perfect tang of sourness…
On this month’s show:
- Emma hooks up with award-winning brewer, Jenn Merrick – previously of Dark Star, Meantime, and, most famously, Beavertown. They discuss gentrification, diversity and apprenticeships in brewing, and Jenn shares her plans for her exciting new project, Earth Station, a new London brewery that looks set to be so much more than just another new London brewery;
- Emma talks beer, barrel-aging and legendary brewmasters with Brooklyn Brewery‘s Rachael Weseloh;
- resident experimental homebrewer, James Torr, shares his plans to brew a lambic-inspired, mixed fermentation sour, and introduces Emma to Rachel Knowles from Trenchmore Farm who has provided the heritage grains for the project;
- Emma gets the lowdown on ‘Save the Greys’ – a campaign to save one of Brighton’s most important pubs – a place dear to the hearts of music lovers and Belgian beer aficionados alike;
- we hear what makes the Grainfather a sought-after piece of kit for both novice and experienced homebrewers, and
- resident beer sommelier, Jane Peyton, makes some lip-puckeringly good sour beer and food pairing suggestions to awaken your tastebuds!
- we taste three beers on air:
