If hops are considered the seasoning of beer than we obviously couldn’t have beer without the meat (malt). This episode we are joined by Andrew from The Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre (CMBTC) to discuss the malt, how important malt is, and delve into the malting process a bit. We also drink Maui Brewing’s Coconut Porter.
