All About the Barley with Admiral Maltings

This episode, we’re all about the malt! Jeff is joined by Ron Silberstein, malt master extraordinaire at Admiral Maltings and Aaron “the Truth” Justus, one of our trusty Research and Development brewers.

Ron discusses how homebrewing became a “hobby spun out of control”, talks about his brewpub, ThirstyBear Organic Brewery - the first and only brewery in San Francisco to brew certified organic beer and become a certified Green Business, and what makes barley such a great sustainable crop. Aaron and Ron nerd out about malt and chat about all the effects it can have on a brew.

To order some freshly kilned, small batch malt of your own – and support a local business in the process, check out admiralmaltings.com or email Ron at ron@admiralmaltings.com.
