Episode #32 Style Spotlight: Barley Wine

After a mini hiatus we are back in action and immediately we go BIG. Big ABV I mean, as this barley_wine_glassepisode we focus our attention towards Barley Wines. We drink a few of them and learn a bit more on how to brew the two main varieties, English and the more aggressive American style.

Listen careful as we hint at a collaboration between Fermentation Nation and The Unknown Brewery and most definitely stay tuned to our next episode as Joe and Daan release an epic side project that also involves Shawn.

Crack your Barely Wines, adjust your recipes, build your yeast cultures and enjoy this episode.

Our Around Town Segment features John Palmer! We grab a quick 11 minute interview w/ the homebrew guru himself!

Side Note: If anyone has used Multi-Dextrin to fix an over attenuation issue please email us how you did it and how well did it work? Shawn or Joe or Daan @fermentationnation.net
