Sweep ‘N Sour with Oskar Norlander & Peter Salmond

Episode: 107

This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, hosts Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme kick off the show with some upcoming beertastic events (and announce plans for their own brew!) before welcoming guests Peter Salmond and Oskar Norlander. Peter and Oskar are the recent winners of Homebrew Alley Sour Category, and actually swept first, second, and third places out of 35 entrees! Their Gueuze, American Stout, and Fruit Lambics were hits at Homebrew Alley and share with Chris and Mary that their recipes remain pretty basic though they have changed their mashes. Talking brewing details, the guys talk their techniques then relay thoughts on the results of the recent competition. Oskar and Peter also chat about how they came to decide the fruits used for their fruit lambics, like passion fruit, and take the hosts through their thoughts behind their award-winning Gueuze. Tune in for more insider details from Peter and Oskar and a great recap of Homebrew Alley! This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.





“We’ve done a couple of batches and the last few were the first ones we really started talking technique; what have we done, what can we do differently, how we can do better. This last batch we really pushed the temperature and that really made a difference.” [11:28]


“When we got the frozen [passion fruit] puree we opened it up… and it just immediately just smelled so good, and we tasted it and it’s tart and sweet and aromatic and fruity – everything I never had in a sour beer and everything I wanted in a sour beer.” [24:55]
