This week my guest is Jamil Zainasheff from Heretic Brewing. Jamil is an icon in the homebrewing community – author of two books, a podcast of his own and very active in the AHA and other home brewing organizations. Last year Jamil quit his day job in software to found his own brewery called Heretic Brewing Company. He talks today about his experience in the first year as a pro-brewer.
This week I interview Dan Morey and we talk about how to brew Abbey and Trappist Ales.Trappist (or Abbey Ales) are a popular Belgian style that has become very popular and is widely duplicated by microbreweries here in the United States. Dan walks us through the variations of the Trappist styles, their character and how to brew them at home.
