In this episode, we talk about brewing terminology. Albert Einstein once said “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough”, and knowing your brewing terminology is the key to learning and growing as a brewer. We use a lot of technical terms and abbreviations on the show when we are talking about brewing and fermentation, and we want to make sure that you completely understand what we mean and are able to correctly apply those terms. So tonight we are going to go through terms that apply to every step of the process so you can learn more from us and teach more to others.

We go through base maltsspecialty maltshops, and yeast, then we try a few beers and discuss the differences we found between yeasts in the same recipe. There are quite a few well used terms out there that can be somewhat confusing for beginning and advanced brewers, so we plan to continue to cover these ideas in future episodes.
