In case you missed it, I was on Rick Jensen’s Thirsty Thursday (WDEL 1150AM) last week. I had a great time talking about beer! Check out the podcast, and be sure to check out Thirsty Thursday on WDEL every week at 3pm. Check out his other podcasts.
Thanks to my coworker, Sarah, I have half a pound of fresh Cascade hops! What will I do with them, you ask? Right now they’re in the freezer. They’ll probably go in the last 20/10/5 minutes of a boil, while using some more proper bittering hops for the full 60 minutes. I don’t know if there’s room in my next two experimental recipes for them, but why not?
For those of you who don’t know, Cascade hops are named after the “Cascadia” region of California and Canada. Cascade hops embody that citrusy, floral hop aroma so typical of west-coast pale ales.
The Bongo Zeptobrewery was established in the Spring of 2009. Since then we have committed ourselves to providing quality beer from South Philadelphia, while still pushing our own imaginations. Batches are extremely limited, so catch them while you can!
