Boiler Gold

Below are a few pictures to go with the “Boiler Gold” episode of Indiana Home Cooks. Thanks to Brian Farkas, head of the Department of Food Sciences at Purdue, and Jean Jensen, manager of the Hops and Brewing Analysis Lab at Purdue University, for providing me with background on the development of the Boiler Gold beer. They were very generous with their time, talking about the work going on in Food Sciences and the lab, and showing me around the facilities.

And did you know you can listen, and subscribe to the Indiana Home Cooks podcast, at Apple Podcasts.  You can also find the show on Stitcher. Use whichever platform is most convenient. Please subscribe (it’s free) and leave a review. It helps others find the Indiana Home Cooks podcast.  Thanks!

This is what a hop cone looks like.

 

Hops that have been pelletized. They are used in brewing in this form, or as intact cones.

I’m not a very good blogger. Christine and I had nearly finished our beers before I remembered to take a picture. Boiler Gold on the left, Thieme & Wagner Bock on right. Both were delicious!
