Episode #10 Brewing Belgian Beers

This episode focuses mainly on Trappist and Abbey Ale styles. Join us as we travel in  time to a simpler place where brewing beer at the monasteries was a way of life and even considered life saving. We will quickly fast forward to the foundation of the present day Trappist monasteries and their influence on today’s Belgian beers.

In this show, we will cover the basics of recipe formulation and emphasize the importance of sugars and candi syrups. Make sure to listen for a great discussion on the many different Belgian yeast strains available to brewers, both commercial and home alike.Heist
