At New Year’s Eve, Xhanika and I brewed a beer. But at the end of such a day, you are still far from having an actual drinkable beer. There were still two steps to come: Bottling and lagering. So two weeks later I had to take out all the cleaning equipment again.
Historical brewing and the preHistorisch Dorp; part 2
In July 2021 Monique, Frank and I experimented with medieval brewery in our beloved museum preHistorisch Dorp Eindhoven. The goal was not to brew a drinkable beer (although that would have been nice) but to show people how brewing could have been done back then. Based on our earlier research we decided to use hot stones this time.

When I visited Brussels last year it wasn’t specifically for the beery things. The main beery thing of the trip was a Gueuze brewery, namely Cantillon.
StiBON: Level 2
As soon as I heard that I passed the level 1 exams I signed up for level 2. Level 2 consists of 12 (actually 13) detailed lessons about everything you can imagine beer related, but like every course in the end you have just scratched the surface.
Malt. Since you are reading this blog, you probably know something about beer and its present-day main ingredients: water, yeast, hops and malt, But what’s malt?
Additionally to the course we got a tour through the Trumer brewery in Obertrum am See by the always enthusiastic and wonderful Johanna.
