Brewing TV - Episode 55: All About Stout

We are getting ready for St. Patrick's Day with stout on the brain! For the occasion, Jake and Mike brew two beers. One is a Dry Irish Stout on par with the modern Guinness Draught, which we serve on nitrogen through a stout faucet. The other beer is a Single Stout Porter, based on a beer Guinness produced back in the 1880s. We put the beers up against each other in a taste test… and find out the secret to Chip's Chocolate Stout along the way. [Original postdate: February 10, 2012]

Brewing TV - Episode 53: Lager Workarounds

'Tis the season for brewing and fermenting lagers. But what if you don't have the set-up for true lagering process (fermenting fridge, near-freezing basement, etc.)? Brewing TV says "Fake the funk!" In this episode, Dawson and our cohort Don Osborn brew up three beers. They use some yeast strain and temperature workarounds to make them into great non-lagers.
