This week, Beer Sessions Radio welcomes back Jaega Wise and her book “Wild Brews” - the only book twice featured - along with biologist Paul Mankiewicz, to spill all about water.
We shall start off with a brief re-intro by Jaega, and Paul’s intro of his work with water. Jaega will talk more about her time at water school, before giving you exclusive tips for your first batch. We’ll also discuss alkaline and all the bad things that can happen with beers when you get the water wrong, before Paul jumps in with a history lesson on the NYC water system. Jimmy also tries to get involved with a pretty obvious question about hardness, while Jaega and Paul geek out way too hard on the term “scale.”
Later on, we come back to the recipes in “Wild Brews” and Burton-on-Trent unique eggy pale ale. The gang also touches on climate change, with its impact on water and the craft beer scene. Last but not least, Jimmy finally finds a consistent way to end the show by bringing back the question-for-other format, before Jaega tells us the same dumb question everyone keeps asking about her book.
Grab your goggles and waterproof headphones before joining us on this deep dive!
