Brewmasters: Punkin

Tonight, another new episode of Brewmasters aired on Discovery channel. This episode covered two beers; Punkin which was Sams fourth recipe as a home brewer and includes pumpkin, nutmeg, and allspice. The second brew was called Portamarillo and it is a porter that includes Tamarillo fruit from New Zealand. I will cover this beer in a separate post.

At the factory they started construction to increase the amount of beer they produce and had a small disaster when thet received a shipment of twist off beer bottles from the glass supplier. Since Dogfish Head does not use twist off bottle caps, they had to quarantine a number of pallets of beer so they did not ship the defective bottles to customers.

Once Sam returned home from New Zealand, he decided that he would make the defective beer "Paycheck Cases" instead of dumping all of it out. Thats right, if you work at Dogfish Head not only do you get a paycheck but you get to take home a case of beer! I wonder if they have and opening for a newbie Brewmaster?
