Brew it Real Good with Salt
This week on Fuhmentaboudit!, Mary Izett and Chris Cuzme are discussing some beers to make with salt and pepper with Sixpoint's Heather McReynolds! Tune in to hear how Heather has been experimenting in the Sixpoint labs for the experimental Mad Scientist Beers! Mary, Chris, and Heather talk about gueuzes, a classic German style that relies on salty water. Find out why gueuzes are great for the summer! Learn how to use different salts to accentuate flavors in specific styles! Did you know that Sichuan peppercorns aren't pepper at all? Find out how you can use peppercorns in porters, and how Heather added umami flavors to beer to create a pepper steak beer! Thanks to our sponsor, Whole Foods.
"I love where brewers get inspiration from... you see these great foods and spices and think, 'Yeah, I have to make a beer out of that!'" [15:20]
