OK, so the long awaited day arrived and we brewed our first batch of Heretic beer.
In a way, I can’t believe we will be brewing our first batch in just a couple days.
There are a lot of little and not so little things to do before your brewery is ready to produce beer.
It's time to announce the next in the series of BYO/BBR brewing science experiments — the effect of beer glassware on the beer drinker's sensory experience.
In this series, James Spencer and I have tried to pick experiments that were interesting, but also do-able by the average homebrewer. Additionally, we've tried to design experiments that allow our collaborators to gather some objective data along with the inevitable subjective data (such as comparing the aroma or flavor of two beers) that comes with the subject matter. We think this experiment succeeds at both of these objectives.
We haven’t brewed a drop of beer yet, but we’ve already run out of the hops we need to brew the beers we are planning to brew.
