#23 - Short Trails - 3 Guys, 1 Grain Room, 150 points

Introducing the one and only Donny Fox! He will be joining me as co-host extrodinaire and this first little episode was rediculously fun. 

We sat down in the crowded grain room with Ryan to talk about the day's events. Lessons learned about hop residue's effect on kettle sours, our first time striking with first runnings wort, and the usual off-topic shinanigans!

Intro music by...yours truely. No joking! I'm really liking this music creation thing.

 

Anyway, thanks so much for listening, and join the conversation in the comments and on our Facebook Page

Cheers,

-N

#22 - Kick Azz Girlz of DSB (part one)

!! We couldn't be more proud, and inspired by these two wacky ladies!!

In this episode, I sit down with our brewhouse rockstars, Kristen Ewer and Tiffany Bettinger. We were drinking some brews and chatting it up for over 2 hours...so... I had to split this into two seperate episodes.

Listen in to get to know these two girls that are brewing up so much of the creativity and quality that you have grown to love from Dark Sky Brewing. 

Happy Trails and cheers to all!

Some audio explaining my trip down to Beaver Creek near Sedona to capture some wild yeast. A blog post will follow soon about the entire process and story as soon as I know that this yeast strain rocks...which it smells like it does!!

#5 Homebrewers, Celiacs, & Omission…Oh my!

In episode #5, we talk with Chris and Amanda Rupka. He is a homebrewer and she is a Celiac. Both lived the life of craft beer enthusiasts in Colorado and then she found out, she couldn't drink the beer! Listen in on our conversation in the back of the brewery as we discuss their challenges and hopes for more Gluten FREE beer.
 

We also have our first Inter-State call as I interview Joe Casey and Steven Hallstone at Omission Beer Co. They let you know all about their gluten-reduced beer and the process and testing that they perform.
 

I am very proud of this latest episode and hope you enjoy it. If so, comment, subscribe, and mostly, share Brew Trails with someone you know who enjoys craft beer and the outdoors!
 

Here are some links from this episode:

An exhaustive forum from HomebrewerTalk about gluten free and gluten reduced beer and beer recipes
 

Music for today was awesomely provided by Brian White. Check out his Bandcamp music and find him playing around AZ with Viola and the Brakemen
 
White Labs sells the enzyme that we use in our gluten reduced beers. Here is a link to their information on this specific protease enzyme. Much, much more information about this topic can be found on the web or just throw me an email if you have any further questions
 
Cheers!

#4 - Kahtoola Race & Bacon Porters

In this episode, we interview racers in Flagstaff's Kahtoola Uphill Race. This is one of the best event/fundraisers of the year and we wouldn't miss it for the world. Hilary Child's is the race director and is passionate about the benefit to Camp Colton, the race's fundraiser. We always try to live up to our hastag #BrewHardPlayHard. 

 
Then, we will listen in on some of the fun that was had as The Pig's Meow came up from the Valley to brew a Maple Bacon Porter! Yum!
 
We were not able to lock in any local music for this episode, bumski, so please let us know of any AZ or Flagstaff artists that would be stoked to be on the show's music showcase.
