Presentation: More Exbeerimentation with Josh Davis!

In May we are happy to continue our recurring series dedicated to uncovering the truth behind the countless homebrewing myths, theories and best practices out there. Host Josh Davis is putting a brewing theory to the test by guiding us through a structured blind triangle taste test of two Pale Ales with a subtle difference between them. Josh's custom software will be utilized to gather your tasting notes in real time and show the results live. Be sure to attend to see if you can detect a difference and figure out which brewing theory is in the hot seat! TASTE THE SCIENCE!

Josh is a BJCP Judge and professional Chemical Engineer with a passion for applying scientific principles to the art of fermentation.  With roughly 10 years of brewing experience, a few medals, and countless solo brewing experiments under his belt he is well positioned to lead the charge towards better brewing science.

If you're feeling under the weather, or not well, please do not attend - don't worry, we're working on getting this meeting recorded to the best of our ability and uploading it after the fact to our YouTube channel so you can all catch what Jonah has to say!!! But with COVID still around (and with a bit of a summer surge going on) we just want everyone to be cautious for their own health and the health of others.
