Brewing aficionados: take note. Back for his third time, Bill Oats from Three Rivers Underground Brewers visits the Drinking Partners podcast with an extensive collection of beer and knowledge. The early minutes feature a discussion on recipe development and have the men trying to decide if a pickle is a fruit as Bill describes TRUB’s successful dill pickle beer. What follows is a series of questions that focus on taste. From how to brew a proper Belgian to how to make yeast healthy, Bill drops all sorts of brewing lessons that homebrewers will appreciate. Ed and Day listen in as attentive students with only occasional outbursts, such as “Tell the yeast it’s beautiful.” Find Mr. Oats and other Three Rivers Underground Brewers members at this year’s Brewing Up a Cure, a homebrewer-centric festival that raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on October 19 at the Energy Innovation Center in Pittsburgh.
