Meet Axel Jany, International Customer Consultant for Weyermann® Specialty Malt. BSG got the chance to catch up with him and dive deep into his role at Weyermann®, his experience in brewing, what interests him, and a peek into the heart of Weyermann® malts.
“With the Weyermann® Harvest Bier (Erntebier) we revive an almost forgotten, old brewing tradition. It was brewed to nourish and reward hard-working farmers and harvest workers during their strenuous work. Despite the slightly lower alcohol content, it presents a pleasant hop note, and the creamy mouthfeel turns this brew into a tasty and refreshing beer.”
We had a wonderful time seeing friends old and new at the 2019 Craft Brewers Conference in Denver - here are just a few of our fond memories from the gathering. See you next year in San Antonio!
BSG, along with Rahr Malting Co. and Gambrinus Malting, were proud to sponsor the 2018 MBAA/ASBC Brewing Summit in San Diego. We were joined by our friends from Simpsons Malt and Weyermann® Specialty Malts, and learned a bunch from the talks and abstracts presented by members of the Rahr Technical Center team while socializing with colleagues new and old.
The Rahr Technical Center Brewery has been busy brewing for the past several months, and you can have a chance to sample the results at the 2018 Craft Brewers Conference in Nashville. The RTC beers encompass a wide range of styles highlighting the flavors and aromas of some of the ingredients available from BSG’s suppliers.
New to BSG’s portfolio of malts for 2018 is Eraclea Pilsner from Weyermann® Specialty Malts. This terroir malt is grown on the fertile alluvial plain of Eraclea, near Venice, Italy, alongside similarly-renowned agricultural products including grapes for Prosecco and Soave wine, and durum wheat for pasta.
Whether you’re sticking to the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law of 1516) or want to make your own twist on the Oktoberfest Märzen style lager, BSG CraftBrewing can provide you with the ingredients you need to brew this long-time enjoyed beer. So, unless you’ve stuck to German tradition and have had your Oktoberfest already aging in a cave or cellar to be enjoyed at the end of summer, then you better get to brewing!
