About Us

By The Mash Tun is a podcast hosted by a couple of nerds where we brew some beer, drink some beer and have a chat about beer. Each episode we brew a particular style of beer and during the “mashing in” (when the grains steep in warm water to extract their sugars and delicious flavours in something called a “Mash Tun”) we talk about that beer, how we’ve built our own recipe and drink other commercial examples of the style. All this, recorded whilst we sit By The Mash Tun.

Latest Episodes

41 - London Porter

A tradition in that there London for hundreds of years Porter was designed to be dark, rich, and yet easy going. A good version will let you know you're drinking it without slowing you down. We brew one ourselves and talk about our recipe before trying these other examples: Mike's Old Homebrew - Smoked Porter Meantime - London Porter - https://www.meantimebrewing.com/ Fuller's - London Porter - https://www.fullers.co.uk/ FINAL GRAVITY We also try a bottle of the Kveik Helles brewed in episode 30. Find out what went right, what went wrong and what we learned by brewing.

41 - London Porter

40 - Session Bitters

If you're a fan of easy going beers with a malty edge that you can guzzle by the pint then Session Bitters (or Ordinary Bitters) might be for you. Lower in ABV than other types of Bitter, this traditional English style can hide a lot of subtlety in a very tiny package.

39 - Self Indulgent Christmas Episode!

In this slightly festive (yearly?) episode, Mike and Cal take a break from brewing and reflect on the past year. We discuss our favourite brews and which beers we learned the most from, as well as taking some time to really appreciate the beers in front of our faces. We try "Holly Cutter" by West Berkshire Brewery, that was featured in episode 34, we try the Brutx Fizz experiment that was brewed all the way back in episode 17 (!) and we also have a Siren beer because we like them and the beers they do. Good times, good beers, good company. See you next year!

38 - Fermentation Variation - Fruit Wine

In the first of our new series on fermented bevarages other than beer, Cal and Mike take a look at a potentially delicious way of using up a lot of spare fruit. Fruit Wines can be quick and simple to make, and most of the kit needed will already be owned by most homebrewers. So why not try something against the grain? In the episode we also try other examples of fruit wine: A bottle of last year's batch (which was mango and grapefruit) Cherry Wine "Cherry B" (no website) Little Earth Project and Neon Raptor - "Damsons In Excess" (technically still a beer, but Damsons were added pre fermentation so maybe technically a fruit wine/beer hybrid) https://www.littleearthproject.com/ https://www.neonraptorbrewingco.com/ FINAL GRAVITY We also try a beer from a previous episode, the Rye IPA from episode 25. Find out what went right, what went wrong and what we learned by brewing.

37 - Berliner Weisse

If you're a fan of sour beers, then you've probably already heard of Berliner Weisses. Crisp and refreshing they go down easy, but are these clean modern takes authentic? In this episode Mike tries to brew (to the best of his knowledge) a somewhat traditional take on the Berliner Weisse, something with a mellow sour funk that may end up taking quite a long time to finish... We also try these other examples of the style (or thereabouts): Undisclosed - Mystery Infected Beer Siren Craft Brew - Calypso - https://www.sirencraftbrew.com/ Garage Beer Co - See Watch - https://www.garagebeer.co/ FINAL GRAVITY We also try two beers from previous episodes, the Coffee Stout from Episode 33 and the Imperial Milk Stout from Episode 28. Find out what went right, what went wrong, and what we learned by brewing. If you are interested in brewing this beer yourself you can find the recipe at https://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/

36 - American Lager

It's easy to look down on American Lagers. They're popular and have flavours so subtle that some would argue slip into the relms of being bland. In reality, brewing something as clean and neutral can be very difficult and as a homebrewer creating something this flawless is possibly the ultimate challenge of your abilities. As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then try these examples: Coors Light - https://www.coorslight.com/ Budweiser - https://www.budweiser.co.uk/ Pabst Blue Ribbon - https://pabstblueribbon.com/ And if you're interested in brewing this beer yourself, you can find the recipe at https://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/

35 - New Zealand Pilsner

When choosing hops for your recipe, location and "terroir" can be just as important as variety. Hops from New Zealand in particular are highly regarded not only for having unusual intense flavours but also keeping things deliciously subtle in a well balanced beer. What better style to try them out than a New Zealand Pilsner, a crisp refreshing lager balanced with those new world hop notes. As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then try these examples: Mac's - Hop Rocker - https://macs.co.nz/ Cloudwater - It Took Over The Airports - https://cloudwaterbrew.co/ Burnt Mill - Moutere and Mosaic - http://www.burntmillbrewery.com/ FINAL GRAVITY We also try two beers from previous episodes, the Schwarzbier from Episode 23 and the Pineapple Icecream Pale Ale from Episode 29. Find out what went right, what went wrong, and what we learned by brewing.

34 - Old Ale with West Berkshire Brewery

One of the key parts of beer is the delicious grain that gives it its body, sweetness, colour and potentially many of its other attributes, the malted barley. If you're a fan of a big malt character in your beers, then Old Ale might be a great style to try, since it's packed full of big, biting and tasty malt flavours. In this episode Mike chats with Will Twomey, head brewer of West Berkshire Brewery (where Mike also works, which is totally a conflict of interest) about an Old Ale that was brewed recently, named Holly Cutter. We try Holly Cutter and discuss it's recipe, before delving into these other examples of the style: Morland - Old Crafty Hen https://www.oldspeckledhen.co.uk/ Theakston - Old Peculiar https://www.theakstons.co.uk/ Robinsons - Old Tom https://www.robinsonsbrewery.com/ And you can find out more about West Berkshire Brewery's beers at https://www.wbbrew.com/

33 - Coffee Stout with Siren Craft Brew

Many people relish getting nerdy about homebrewing (maybe you’re one?), but there is also another type of brewing that gets equally deep, and that's coffee. Coffee has been well studied and well enjoyed by many nerds and can add fantastic flavours to your beers, from dark lingering roasty bitterness to big rich fruity notes. In this special on-location episode of By The Mash Tun we talk to Siren Craft brewer Kit Karazinov who has a lot of experience adding coffee to beer. Find out how, what, when, where and why to make these additions in order to bring out the exact flavour you’re looking for. We also try all four of this year’s Project Barista series, all by Siren Craft Brew: Double Double, Coffee Negroni, Irish and Bourbon Turkish. https://www.sirencraftbrew.com/ You can find the recipe discussed in the episode at https://www.themaltmiller.co.uk/

32 - Green Hop Pale Ale

When it comes to hops usually fresh is best. So what could be better than fresh undried hops straight from the bine! Some say it gives grassy and "green" notes, so if you're looking for the freshest hop flavour you can get, why not celebrate harvest season with a beer? We brew a Green Hop Pale Ale in the episode and try these delicious hopped beverages: Hogsback - Hop Garden Gold - https://www.hogsback.co.uk/ Dark Star - Hophead - https://www.darkstarbrewing.co.uk/ Wye Valley Meadery - Honey & Hops - https://www.wyevalleymeadery.co.uk/ We also try some "Herefordshire Hop" a delicious English hopped cheese!
