Vinnie Cilurzo returns to The Session

At long last, homebrew and craft beer favorite Vinnie Cilurzo from Russian River Brewing Company returns to The Session! Vinnie has become one of the best brewers in the nation (world?) and is our guru for all things hops and sour. This time around Vinnie talks about his new brewery and the challenges it brings, hops and their use in Belgian styles, the use of pediococcus, lactobacillus and brettanomyces, and some simple insight into using wood and barrel aging techniques. It's another one of our legendary long BN shows, and it's worth every minute!

Longer shelf life for xxIPA hop flavor? by Jason Engelund, January 17, 2010
Question about maintaining big hop flavor. Love RR brews, and started home-brewing after being inspired by Pliny the Elder. Read your tips and I'm a big fan of mash hopping. Q: For my double IPA my amarillo dry hop flavor starts to drop out after a few weeks. I'm now trying to go heavy on 1 minute additions and then aging it longer. Any tips on getting big hop flavor to have a longer shelf life in double IPAs?

Keep your beer as cold as possible and minimize oxygen to keep the hop flavor .That said Hoppy beers should be drunk as fresh as possible .
