3696
We get a lot of questions about how to brew quality beers with a higher gravity. Sometimes the questions are simple, and other times they can be kind of complex. Today, we put our heads together and lay out everything you need to know about how to brew these big beers - fermentation, recipe formulation, mashing, and more!

Tune in and learn about how Heretic tackles this complex and experimental part of producing great craft beer from barrels.

Mashing Dark Malts - Brewing With Style 01-10-17
3517
Today's show is full of a few things, but mainly beer. We talk today about the practice of adding your dark malts at the end of the mash versus keeping them in there for the entire thing. It's a much-debated topic, with many people on either side swearing to their cats that their way is the best. JP brewed two batches of his Oatmeal Stout, one with grains at the mash and one with the dark grains added at the end. Which will dominate? Find out!

4039
We had so much fun with the last Secret Beers show that we had to come back with a Part Two. Beevo brings Jamil, Tasty, and JP two mystery beers during the show, and it's up to our brave hosts to guess the style. Which is much harder than it seems!

4125
Jamil, Tasty, and JP have been lucky enough to have done several collaboration beers over the years with friends and colleagues alike. With more and more breweries reaching out into the homebrewing world for ProAm collaborations, and various "fun-to-brew" beers, they decided to use this episode of Brewing With Style to talk about the complex world of the collaboration beer. The guys discuss what to expect from your brew day, what is expected from you, and how to the the most out of this amazing experience. Plus they make fun of Beevo a lot. Again.

Secret Beers - Brewing With Style 10-24-16
3040
Jamil starts this episode of Brewing With Style by talking about Beevo's love for Brad at Brewer's Hardware. Needless to say she's uncomfortable with it, which is always funny. Then we jump right into the topic for today - Secret Beers! We had two beers chosen for us secretly before the show, and our goal is to try and guess what styles these beers fall under. It's harder than it sounds! JP and Tasty come up with some crazy guesses, and Jamil ... well he does what you'd expect him to.

4280
Jamil, Tasty, and JP talk about the recent happenings at the Great American Beer Festival, including beers, judging, and all the work that goes into putting on a giant beer fest. Well, Jamil and Tasty talk about it, since JP didn't go. We talk a lot about the judging side of the GABF and just how much time it takes to run through all of the entries to pick the winners, not to mention the toll it takes on your body. Most people don't know it's an 8-hour work day, and Jamil reminds us of that. It's a good insight into the other side of a beer competition.

Foreign Extra Stout - Brewing With Style 09-26-16
3956
Coming off of Jamil's recent trip to Asia, we decided to revisit the Foreign Extra Stout category. Notoriously hard to find in the U.S. Jamil was able to track down some pretty neat beer and mule them back for us - including Guinness's version! We all had a clear favorite in the studio, which makes it even more painful to know that it will be nearly impossible to find on our side of the pond. Oh well, such is beer!
Sep 26, 2016
Trappist Single Ale - Brewing With Style 09-06-16
3582
We open the show today waxing poetic about how old Jamil is getting and how he has forgotten so much stuff that he has to refer to his own books to remind him of certain things. Then we jump into today's style, Trappist Single Ale (category 26A in the 2015 BJCP guidelines), which was another style requested by a listener looking for more information on this hard-to-find style. Needless to say, we were not able to have any of the classic styles for this show, but we did find a beer that came very, very close from Monkish.

Czech Amber Lager - Brewing With Style 08-16-16
4195
We had a listener email into the show asking for us to cover something called Czech Amber Lager (category 3c in the new BJCP guidelines).

First off, though, we discuss what it means to have a commercial example ready, and how that affects the ability to understand and interpret the BJCP guidelines. After a bit of banter about the regionalism inferred by the name, we dig into the closest commercial beers we can find that may fall into the Czech Lager category.
