While this is commonly done in a single dose, some claim that by making two separate dry hop durations, they get even more desirable hop character in their beer. In this episode, Marshall is joined by Brülosophy contributors Brian Hall and Jake Huolihan as well as professional brewer, Nate Cooper, of Yakima's Wandering Hop Brewery to discuss the double dry hop method and results from an xBmt on the topic.

Episode 107 | Dry Hop Saturation Point

As brewers of hoppy IPA are well aware, adding hops to fermented beer, aka dry hopping, is known to be the best way to impart heaps of delectable hop character. While it's commonly believed that "more is better," researchers from Oregon State University performed a study that called this idea into question. In this episode, Marshall sits down with contributor Cade Jobe to talk about Dr. Tom Shellhammer's findings suggesting there is a point of diminishing returns when it comes to dry hopping, as well as the results of a Brülosophy xBmt on the topic.

Way back before we knew as much as we do today about the malting and brewing processes, brewers were forced to develop methods that would allow them to produce a consistent product. One such method involves taking portions of the mash and boiling it before putting it back in the mash to raise the temperature. In this day and age, given the availability of highly modified malts, many have ditched decoction altogether, yet some continue employing the process convinced it has a positive impact on beer character.

Episode 037 | Quick Sour Beers w/ House Of Pendragon Brewing Co.

Sour beers have risen in popularity over the last few years with drinkers thirsting for their complex presentation of funky tartness. While making sour beer traditionally required upwards of a couple years, many brewers these days are relying on methods to hasten the souring process. In this episode, Marshall is joined by contributor Malcolm Frazer as well as the first in-studio guest, Sean Wood, to discuss techniques brewers can use to produce delicious sour beer quickly. Sean has been homebrewing for years, served as president of the local homebrew club for 2 years, and currently helps manage the sour and barrel program at House Of Prendragon Brewing Company. His beers are as great as his knowledge is deep! This and every episode of The Brülosophy Podcast is proudly brought to you by The American Homebrewers Association.

Episode 034 | Kettle Finings In Brewing

Brewers have been seeking ways to produce the clearest beer possible for ages, coming up with some pretty odd methods along the way such as relying on dried fish bladder known as isinglass. Despite so many technological advancements, modern brewers continue to rely on arguably rudimentary finings including Irish moss, an algae, and it's more powerful cousin Whirlfloc.

Episode 032 | Brew In A Bag

Not too long ago, homebrewers interested in all grain brewing were often advised to build a cumbersome setup consisting of 3 separate vessels, all serving a very specific purpose. Making the jump to all grain essentially meant dedicating a good portion of one's garage to a brewery, which was a barrier for many. Then along came some clever Australians with an idea that made all grain brewing nearly as easy as brewing with extract-- Brew In A Bag! In this episode, contributor Jake Huolihan joins Marshall to chat about this simple approach to making beer that has become one of the most popular methods since its inception. We'll also be going over some interesting results from exBEERiments we've performed.

Episode 030 | Brülosophy Yeast Blend With Bootleg Biology

As much as we here at Brülosophy love the funkier side of beer, most of what we brew demands cleaner styles so that the impact of whatever variable we're testing shines through. Thankfully, some of the best beers out there tend toward a cleaner flavor profile, from German Pilsner to Hazy IPA. With so many yeast strains out there, it can sometimes be difficult to choose one, and we thought it'd be cool to have a single option that works great in a variety of styles. On this episode, the dudes from Bootleg Biology join Marshall to discuss the new Brülosophy Blend yeast recently released as well as a bunch of data from blind taster evaluations of various beer styles made with the blend.

Episode 004 | Does Fermentation Vessel Matter?

In this episode, Marshall and Jake chat about one of the more surprising exBEERiment variables they've tested-- the type of vessel beer is fermented in. From standard plastic buckets to glass carboys and stainless fermentors, brewers these days have many options to choose from, most presuming it doesn't have a noticeable impact on the quality of the beer. Does it? Listen to find out!

Episode 002 | No Sparge Brewing

Contributor Jake Huolihan joins Marshall to chat about a method that allows brewers to cut both time and complexity out of their brew day by skipping the sparge step. Commonly referred to as no sparge brewing, this method involves mashing with the full volume of brewing liquor, meaning a much higher liquor-to-grist ratio, which some believe can produce wort with varying differences in quality compared to traditionally sparged beers. We address these concerns and discuss an exBEERiment Jake performed on no sparge brewing as well as our experiences using the method ourselves.
