24 - Zymology with Quinton Sturgeon


If you like booze, you'll love... fungus! Alie goes Rogue and takes a field trip to a brewery in Newport, OR where she smells vats of bubbling beer slop and learns about the microorganisms that are the workhorses of the brewing industry. Learn about yeasts, how beer is made, the hardest part about being a beer maker, the thick history of beer, some home brewing tips and also a nugget about bungholes. Let's get yeasty.

Listen to the episode on iTunes, Art19 or wherever you get podcasts. 

Special thanks to Shannon Feltus and Boni Dutch for the hook-up and the road trip to the coast.
