Episode 107 | Dry Hop Saturation Point

As brewers of hoppy IPA are well aware, adding hops to fermented beer, aka dry hopping, is known to be the best way to impart heaps of delectable hop character. While it's commonly believed that "more is better," researchers from Oregon State University performed a study that called this idea into question. In this episode, Marshall sits down with contributor Cade Jobe to talk about Dr. Tom Shellhammer's findings suggesting there is a point of diminishing returns when it comes to dry hopping, as well as the results of a Brülosophy xBmt on the topic.

Episode 103 | Decoction Mashing

Way back before we knew as much as we do today about the malting and brewing processes, brewers were forced to develop methods that would allow them to produce a consistent product. One such method involves taking portions of the mash and boiling it before putting it back in the mash to raise the temperature. In this day and age, given the availability of highly modified malts, many have ditched decoction altogether, yet some continue employing the process convinced it has a positive impact on beer character. In this episode, Marshall sits down with contributor Malcolm Frazer to discuss the decoction method as well as the results of a fascinating xBmt on the topic!
