Episode #11 Brewing Stouts

This Episode we are joined by Patrick Lewis and Ivey Thorton from House of Brews, our first Official Sponsors! We are talking all things stouts and their historical predecessors, Porters.

Ride along with show mascot Chunk as we touch base on how these two ( and their sub-styles) came to be, and also go in depth on brewing these beers at home. We discuss base malts, specialties, hops, yeast and how to balance all of these as well as discuss how to add on to these styles with the ever popular choices of coffee, chocolate, oak, spices and fruit

We also announce a partnership with Brew Carolina, a web ring aiming to centralize craft beer information in the Carolina’s. Drop in and check out our boys Cheers Charlotte!
