Yeah, beer and that...

Yeah, beer and that...

By CraftBeerBanter
Talking all things home brew, and craft beer. We'll talk about beers we have brewed, critique the recipes, and compare them to their closest commercial equivalent.
It's a bit of laugh, if nothing else...

205 - Adjective IPAs, Pirate Life Brewing Co. IPA, and Blegian Golden Strong Ale
Welcome to yet another Covid-19 Isolation Episode. We still have yet to fix the poor audio quality, and we're sticking with our 'Adelaide internet' defense as that's easier than blaming ourselves. This episode deals with all things 'IPA'. This amazing beer style almost defines craft beer. Hoppy. Malty. Alcoholic. Able to be modified, and enjoyed in a miriad of ways. We discuss the differences between a 'White IPA', a 'Red IPA', and a 'Black IPA', and talk about the brew days, and recipes associated with each delicious beer in 'Segment 1'. If Mike, or Luke could get their shit together, I'd be able to put a link to the recipe. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Keep checking back to see how long it takes for the 'TBC' to change into a useable link. In 'Segment 2' we talk about the origins of the 'India Pale Ale', and we compare the homebrewed beers to a commercial equivalent. We finalise the show in 'Segment 3' by revisting a game from the first show of Season 2, called 'Name That Beer', we enjoy a round of 'Simmo Says' with the man himself, and we continue our brand new game, called 'Brew-Busters'.  Enjoy.  We're on Instagram:  @craftbeerbanter @koegles @vikingthiccdicc @asimmo90  We're on the e-mail:  chris@craftbeerbanter.com  You can find the recipes here:  TBC. (Fucking Mike, and Luke)

204 - Witbier, Hoegaarden, and Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier
Welcome to the Covid-19 Isolation Episode. Please excuse the unbelievably poor audio quality. We have Adelaide internet. It's not entirely our fault. This episode deals with the delicious beer style 'Witbier', (among other things of course). We're talking about the brew day, and recipe involved with making the creatively named beer, 'Witbier' in 'Segment 1'. If Mike, or Luke could get their shit together, I'd be able to put a link to the recipe. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Keep checking back to see how long it takes for the 'TBC' to change into a useable link. In 'Segment 2' we mention the 'Belgian Beer Cafe' about 35 times, and we compare the homebrewed beer to a commercial equivalent. We finalise the show in 'Segment 3' by revisting a game from the first show of Season 2, called 'Name That Beer'. We also introduce a brand new game, called 'Brew-Busters'. Enjoy. We're on Instagram: @craftbeerbanter @koegles @vikingthiccdicc We're on the e-mail: chris@craftbeerbanter.com You can find the recipe here: TBC. (Fucking Mike, and Luke)
