Author. Consultant. Homebrewer. Economist! Mike has made a name for himself as one of the country's most respected experts on the production of sour beer. His book "American Sour Beers" and his blog www.themadfermentationist.com are invaluable resources for brewers looking to improve on their craft. He's also consulted with breweries like Modern Times to develop recipes that we've all come to enjoy on the commercial level. Point is, he's a wealth of knowledge for homebrewers and professional brewers alike. We're lucky to have had the opportunity to bring you some of that knowledge and experience in this conversation. We geared the conversation towards providing homebrewers (and those thinking about starting) with a base knowledge of yeast and bacteria treatment in these wonderfully complex beers, as well as some insight into how to think about recipe creation. Sit back, relax, and learn something!
