Brewing Websites: BrauKaiser.com
God bless wireless internet service. I know its been around since the late 90’s, but there is such a convenience factor of having a laptop that can go just about anywhere and still be able to catch up on your blog lists, snoop for deals on Craigslist, and read previews of this summer’s World Cup. Even sitting out on the porch in the 34° night air (I’m brewing at the moment – yes, I’m a night owl brewer), the breadth of the digital information on the internet is at my fingertips.
Cutting to the relevance of this little rant, while watching the mercury fall out here as I’m waiting between hop additions, I was able to peruse through various beer-related sites. One in particular stood out, which is worth sharing. This very interesting and information-packed brewing website is BrauKaiser.com (which was recommended on The Brewing Network’s forum). It’s a Wiki format website with content teaching on brewing techniques and the science behind it - with a particular slant toward German brewing.
The tone of the website is reminiscent Palmer’s book How to Brew - fairly technical in nature with a drive to understand how things work. What I like about BrauKaiser is that its format is stripped down and it’s written with a ‘get-to-the-point’ tone.
If you decide to do a quick flyby of the site, take a walk through the following topics, which jumped out at my particular interests:
The site is worth a mouse click and a few minutes exploring around – I certainly picked up one or two pearls from the site. Let us know your thoughts on it. Additionally, if there are other useful/informative brewing websites on your mind, don’t be shy in sharing.
