Happy first week of December! This week we taste Professor Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner Weisse, and it’s phenomenal.
After some discussion on the brewing process for the beer, we realized the answer was right under our nose written on the bottle.
Taken directly from the label:
“The applied mashing regime is a single step decoction mash with 50 % wheat malt.The total amount of hops is added to the mash so that isomerisation takes place in the decocotion part of the mash. The wort is not boiled but only heated up to boiling temperature and then transferred to the open fermenters and pitched with yeast and lactic acid bacteria (isolated from malt) at 18 °C (64°F).”
We apologize for the technical difficulties this week. We’ve traced the source of the issue to a loose mic cable and have dispatched the ABV technical support team to fix the issue.
Don’t forget to submit a suggestion for future episodes!
