A WRAP UP OF OUR LAST 2 WEEKS As study commitments came to an end with the completion of the semester, the Monash Brewlab team celebrated with two exciting brews! A Vanilla Sweet Stout was the team's first experimentation with dark malts, resulting in an incredibly dark and rich wort. The recipe featured whole vanilla beans and lactose for sweetness. This beer will be perfect for the cold winter weather! Next, the team brewed a Saison, a traditional farmhouse style originating from Belgium. This style excited the team due to the higher fermentation temperatures which should result in yeast driven and fruity ester flavours. The team are ecstatic with the progress that has been made and are so excited to share finished products!
We caught up with Gabi and asked her a couple of questions so that YOU can get to know her better! Role: Team Administrator
