This week we talk about flavor stability in beer with brewing science Professor Charles Bamforth from the University of California at Davis. Charlie has been studying flavor stability in beer for a number of years, and shares with us some of the complexities of keeping beer fresh tasting as it ages. We explore the aging of beer, off flavors, and what can be done to improve the flavor stability of beer over time.
This week we discuss how to brew the perfect Lager with Erik Schmid from The Brewmeister homebrew shop. Erik tells us how to overcome some of the challenges with Lager including refrigeration, yeast selection, ingredients, aging and dealing with off-flavors.
