Milk the Funk: The Podcast

What beverage is created by processes including wort souring, Brettanomyces fermentation, and turbid mashing? If you guessed beer, you are right! Those interested in learning how beer is brewed may enjoy Milk the Funk: The Podcast. Launched in 2013 as Wiki page and Facebook pages for home-brewing enthusiasts, Milk the Funk has since become "a communal authority on alternative yeast and bacteria fermentation with an emphasis in alternative brewing techniques." Due to the large following garnered by the pages, the group expanded their offerings to include a podcast in 2017. The Milk the Funk: The Podcast features "the most up to date discussion on the science and techniques of mixed fermentation" (think, Microbiology: The Miller Lite edition). Listeners learn from experts in the field, including researchers, brewers, and even "beer historians," who cover topics such as brewing yeasts and fermentation techniques. The podcast is hosted by Art Whitaker, Dan Pixley, and Dr. Matt Humbard, all of whom have impressive experience in the brewing industry. As of this write-up, the team has released 16 episodes, which vary in length from about 20 minutes to 2 hours. These podcast can be streamed at the link above and is also available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher.
