The topic of consistency in brewing has come up multiple times here on Beer Me, and one of the best tools for that is implementing some kind of brewing lab to ensure quality control. Our guest, Merritt Waldron, Quality Director of Baxter Brewing Co. and author of “Quality Labs for Small Brewers: Building a Foundation for Great Beer” takes us through some brewing lab basics. He covers why brewing labs are necessary, how labs differ depending on the kind of brewery, and what a beginner brewing lab should include.
