The Science of Barrel-Aged Beer
Barrel-Aged beer is the hottest thing to hit beer in ages. So in honor of Oktoberfest, Anthony sits down to talk about the process with one of the newest and most sought after brewmasters to hit the scene: Jesse Friedman of Almanac Brewery.
How Beer Works
"Fermentation is the process by which yeast converts the glucose in the wort to ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide gas -- giving the beer both its alcohol content and its carbonation."
"Humans have taken advantage of the metabolism in a tiny fungus called yeast to create beer and wine from grains and fruits. What are the biological mechanisms behind this alcohol production?"
"Beer style is a term used to differentiate and categorize beers by factors such as colour, flavour, strength, ingredients, production method, recipe, history, or origin."
Difference Between Ale Vs. Lager
"For the average beer drinker, the difference between an ale and a lager comes down to how the beer looks, smells, and tastes. Ales tend to be fruity-estery, while lagers are clean-tasting and frequently described as 'crisp.'"
"Our artisanal ales are brewed in collaboration with select Northern California sustainable farms. Each limited release is a unique beer to be enjoyed with friends and savored around the seasonal table."
How & Why to Age Beer:
"For those of us marshmallow watchers, who practice the art of delayed gratification, aging beers at home is a delicious way to expand the cellar. Because, like so many wines, certain beers improve over time."
