By The Mash Tun
Monthly+
 
By The Mash Tun is a podcast hosted by a couple of nerds where we brew some beer, drink some beer and have a chat about beer. Each episode we brew a particular style of beer and during the “mashing in” (when the grains steep in warm water to extract their sugars and delicious flavours in something called a “Mash Tun”) we talk about that beer, how we’ve built our own recipe and drink other commercial examples of the style. All this, recorded whilst we sit By The Mash Tun.

One of the key parts of beer is the delicious grain that gives it its body, sweetness, colour and potentially many of its other attributes, the malted barley. If you're a fan of a big malt character in your beers, then Old Ale might be a great style to try, since it's packed full of big, biting and tasty malt flavours. In this episode Mike chat ...…
 
This week we take on the cultural and cinematic behemoth that is 2008’s TWILIGHT. After some…contrasting reviews, we have a surprisingly enjoyable (and extended: strap in, listeners!) time talking about genre mash-ups, missed moments of poignancy, the traumas of High School, and how this isn’t really a film about vampires at all. Next Week Our ...…
 
Many people relish getting nerdy about homebrewing (maybe you’re one?), but there is also another type of brewing that gets equally deep, and that's coffee. Coffee has been well studied and well enjoyed by many nerds and can add fantastic flavours to your beers, from dark lingering roasty bitterness to big rich fruity notes. In this special on- ...…
 
This week we take on the classic vampire/superhero/martial arts (what even is it?) film, BLADE (1998). After some glowing reviews, we talk about subcultures in the 90s, before getting onto liminality, race, class, and the various oppressed groups explored in a vampire movie like this. Next TimeOur next film is the — culturally undoubtedly impor ...…
 
When it comes to hops usually fresh is best. So what could be better than fresh undried hops straight from the bine! Some say it gives grassy and "green" notes, so if you're looking for the freshest hop flavour you can get, why not celebrate harvest season with a beer? We brew a Green Hop Pale Ale in the episode and try these delicious hopped b ...…
 
This week’s film is the 1988 vehicle for a young Nicolas Cage: VAMPIRE’S KISS. After some mixed reviews (this episode is basically one of us trying to persuade the other of the merits of this film…), and a little discussion of aesthetics versus narrative, we talk about misogyny, corporate greed, and the changing symbolism of vampire movies. Nex ...…
 
Mike and Cal join award winning homebrewer Daren Fearon a few days after he brewed one of the biggest styles homebrewers can try, the American take on Barleywine. By taking all that is good about beer (the malt bite, the hoppy finish, the yeasty esters and a touch of alcohol), pushing everything as high as it will go and with ABVs ranging from ...…
 
This week we look at the 1973 film GANJA & HESS. After some pretty favourable reviews, we talk about the thoroughly confusing nature of the film, the idea of cinema as an immersive experience, and the different versions of the movie Bill Gunn was forced into making (and wanted to make) — all the while dancing around the idea of the ecstatic or ...…
 
In recent years strains and cultures of yeasts from Norway have started to get a lot of attention in the brewing world. Unlike other strains they ferment clean even at temperatures as high as 40°C! But can it make a good lager? Using a (sort of) traditional Munich Helles as a base and an isolated strain of Kveik, Mike hopes to find out. As usua ...…
 
This week’s film is the 1963 anthology film BLACK SABBATH. In the course of our reviews, we talk about the two very different versions of the film (Italian and American), before going on to discuss the idea of cinematographic and soundscape intimacy, and lead up to a focus on some thoughts about male control in the vampire genre. Next Time Our ...…
 
Ever wandered what happens when you take the massive fruit punch of a New England IPA and push it even further? If you're adding actual fruit and other ingredients to boost that body into a creamy and sticky mess, you might be venturing towards an Icecream Pale Ale. Big in hops, fruit and body, this beer style may not be traditional, but it sur ...…
 
This week’s film, in an enforced change to our programming, is the 1959 movie CURSE OF THE UNDEAD. After some initial reviews, we talk about the film’s use of some changes in the vampire genre to focus on ideas of ‘good versus evil’, before talking about why this meeting of the vampire genre and the Western actually does work — and implications ...…
 
For people who like their dark beers both very strong and very rich, the Imperial Milk Stout takes all the body of a powerful stout and cranks it up further with additions of lactose. Being an unfermentable sugar, the yeast leave the lactose alone during fermentation giving the beer an extra luxurious sweetness. As usual, we brew one ourselves ...…
 
This week’s film is the unofficial sequel to last time’s movie, RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE (1943). After some not-entirely favourable reviews, we talk about the creation of a cinematic trope or stereotype, developments in film technology, and the idea of vampirism as infection — or lycanthropy as mental illness. Next Time Our next film takes our vam ...…
 
If you want a surefire way of brewing a delicious beer that you'll love to drink, why not start with a clone beer? Taking a tried and tested beer from another brewery and trying to recreate it as authentically as possible (or brewing a "clone" of it) can help any brewer hone their skill whilst also providing tasty and recognisable beer. In this ...…
 
The next film in our vampire sub-season is the first talkie: 1931’s DRACULA. We do some reviewing, some not-always-favourable comparison with NOSFERATU, and then talk about late-Victorian culture, temporal distance, and the fact that there are two very different sorts of vampire film. Next Time Our next film is another Bela Lugosi vehicle, from ...…
 
Episode 26 - Spruce Beer with Wild Weather Ales Cal and Mike go to visit their friends and local brewery Wild Weather Ales. In the episode we learn about the brewery itself, and their experience brewing with the fantastic extra ingredient of Spruce Tips! We try another Spruce Beer "Sprucy Banger" by Adnams and Northern Monk https://www.adnams.c ...…
 
In our first film in a new 'sub-season', we tackle the 1922 classic that kick-started the vampire film genre (no, it wasn’t absolutely the first, but it was the first ‘mainstream’ vampire movie, and has inspired so many others). We have a special guest this week, who talks to us about German Expressionism, how this film is a reflection of conte ...…
 
Many of us have tried Rye in bread and other ingredients, but the question is should it be added to beer? Well, if Rye IPAs are anything to go by then of course it should! Often reddish in colour, Rye IPAs mix the big hit of American hops with a delicious (and some say spicy) malt kick. As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then tr ...…
 
In our last episode of this mini-season, we have reached the end of our focus on the Martial Arts genre, with 2011’s THE RAID. After some perhaps surprising reviews, we talk about how who/where we are in life has a huge effect on our reception of the films we watch, as well as some discussions of cinematic violence and consequences. Next TimeOu ...…
 
Modern English IPAs (unlike their traditional counterparts) may be made with all English ingredients but still manage to hit big intensities whilst also maintaining a quaffable easiness. If you like Maris Otter malt and big hops that tend toward spicy, herbal and earthy whilst keeping some of that hoppy citrus, then look no further! As usual, w ...…
 
The penultimate film in our Martial Arts season might be seen by some as rather loosely connected to the genre: the 2004 parkour movie DISTRICT 13. We talk a bit about the film more generally, before getting into discussions of space, class, and hierarchy (not for the first — or, I suspect — last time on the Prestige…) Next Time Our final Marti ...…
 
Dating back to at least 800BC, Schwarzbier (otherwise known as Black Lager) is the oldest known style of European beer. Black in colour, but with the crisp refreshing body of a lager, this beer gets its popularity from its intricate balance mixed with delicious drinkability! As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then try these comm ...…
 
By The Mash Tun go to Craft Theory 2019! Cal and guest host Chris MacLennan (from The Space Jam Continuum) interview as many brewers/beer people as they could find and demand to know about one of the beers they’ve brought to the festival. In the bumper second part of this two-part special, they interview these lovely people: Anne-Marie from The ...…

We continue our Martial Arts season with Rob’s favourite decade (not just in terms of Martial Arts films, nor even in terms of films…just ever): the 90s. After some reviewing, we look at Jackie Chan’s use of the world around him, the difference between Chan films and Bruce Lee vehicles, and the pleasingly anarchic quality that this movie has wh ...…
 
In the third part of our Back To Basics series Mike and Cal meet up with Rob and Martin from www.themaltmiller.co.uk to chat about equipment. We cover all the kit you'll need from the lowest level all the way up to the top tier stuff, all whilst chatting about our own setups and how they've changed over time. No setup is right for everyone so i ...…
 
We continue our move into the ‘Western’ arena with another modern (ish!) classic of the Martial Arts genre: THE KARATE KID. After contrasting reviews (and a confession from Sam…) we look at the film in terms of its surprising comment on class tensions in the US, the ‘finding a family’ narrative of the film, and the way in which this episode of ...…
 
Drunk in the Cologne region of Germany for centuries, Kölsch is a light crisp refreshing beer that has all the hallmarks of a lager, but is technically an ale. If you’re interested in brewing this beer yourself, you can find the recipe here As usual, we brew one ourselves and talk about it, then try these commercial examples: Hacker Pschorr - K ...…
 
This week our focus has shifted from the Japanese and Chinese films laying the groundwork for the Martial Arts genre, as we land in the realm of a classic of ‘Western’ cinema: ENTER THE DRAGON. There’s not a lot to say in terms of reviews — it’s ENTER THE DRAGON! — but we soon get onto discussions of breakout films, Western/Eastern editing, and ...…
 
If you like your beer to have a big sweet chocolaty malt backbone behind a luscious citrus hoppy aroma, you may very well enjoy the American Brown style. This beer doesn't mess around and gives you big flavours whilst still being refreshing enough to have you asking for more. Newcastle Brown this ain't! If you're interested in brewing this beer ...…
 
This week’s movie is the seminal Hong Kong wuxia piece COME DRINK WITH ME (1966). After some initial reviews, we get into discussions of fantasy and reality, wire work, and on-screen violence. Next Week The next film in our Martial Arts season, and possibly the most famous title we’ll be looking at, is the classic ENTER THE DRAGON (1972). This ...…
 
Join Mike and Cal as they discuss the basics of brewing! If you’ve ever wanted to brew or are new to homebrewing, the Back To Basics episodes may be a good place to start! In the second of these glossary episodes, we spend a bit more time going into the fermentation process (where wort turns into beer) including general advice, pitfalls to avoi ...…
 
This week our tour through Martial Arts movies has reached the 1950s, with SAMURAI SAGA (the Westernised title). After reviews of the film we launch into a discussion that ranges from 8 MILE to Kaiju movies, via US teen high-school drama… Next Week The next film in our Martial Arts season is 1966’s COME DRINK WITH ME, available here. This Week’ ...…
 
Existing for centuries, the traditionally sour and salty style of beer from the Goslar region in Germany has recently started making a huge impact in the beer world. A Gose gives a savoury edge to your biting sours and can give a depth of flavour that quick kettle sours can lack, and pairs excellently with a vast array of different fruit flavou ...…
 
The next in our series of martial arts films — and the first ‘talkie’ — is 1943’s SUGATA SANSHIRO, the debut of our old friend Akira Kurosawa. After differing initial reviews — appropriate, given this week’s theme — we talk about everything from sports films to the MCU. Next Week Our martial arts film from the 1950s, in this decade-by-decade jo ...…
 
Dark and complex, but easy going and very sessionable, the Traditional Dark Mild has been a staple of English Beer for a very long time. Don't let the colour fool you, this is not a sipper, so get it down yer! As usual, we brew one ourselves, talk about the style and our recipe, before trying out these commercial examples: Boutilliers - Sleep D ...…
 
Our next film in Season 4 is 1931’s JIROKICHI THE RAT, the second in our chronological journey through a century of martial arts films. Sam’s a little luke-warm to start with, but is won round in the end — via discussions of cinematic archetypes, innovative camera techniques, and what it means to be a samurai. Next WeekThe next film we take on ...…
 
In this episode we travel to The Grumpy Goat in Reading (http://thegrumpygoat.co.uk/), the bottleshop where Cal and Mike buy 90% of the beers reviewed in other episodes. We talk to owners Anne-Marie and Charlie about the shop and their upcoming beer festival "Craft Theory" http://crafttheoryfestival.co.uk/ We also review these beers from previo ...…
 
Cal loves a lager, but sometimes the wait for that perfectly clean crispy beverage is just too long. One option? Brew a Steam Beer (AKA a California Common), a rough and ready lager yeast beer fermented high and rushed into your glass. We did find one example of the style, but had a bit of trouble getting the archetypal Anchor Steam Beer. So, i ...…
 
We kick off season 4 — and our chronological tour through martial arts cinema — with the 1925 film OROCHI. After some glowing reviews of the film, we talk about the number of ways in which it feels like a very modern piece of cinema: from some of the gender politics, to the stunning choreography of some of its fight scenes, and its almost nihil ...…
 
Join Mike and Cal with new homebrewer Dave Ashmore as we discuss the basics of brewing! If you've ever wanted to brew or are new to homebrewing, the Back To Basics episodes may be a good place to start! In Episode 1 don't expect a thorough scientific view or a weighing up of the pros and cons of various methods. Instead it's a quick and simple ...…

Brewing has existed for millennia so when something truly new comes along people tend to pay attention. Brut IPAs are so new and have captured so many imaginations that we had to try it out for ourselves! Focusing on more of an aged Brut Pale rather than the dry fresh and hoppy Brut IPA, we're treading fairly new ground here, but will our exper ...…

In this episode Cal gets to revisit one of his earliest brews, the Coconut Brown. Combining the sweet malty robustness of a Brown Ale with the unique creaminess of Coconut, it's a style not seen very often but enjoyed by most that try it. We try some commercial examples of beer with Coconut in: Mongozo - Coconut https://www.mongozo.com/Siren Cr ...…

As the sweet, roasty, yet smooth drinking evil twin of the Black IPA, the White Stout is lesser known but just as beloved to its fans. Is the illusion great enough to justify the "Stout" name, or is it just a Coffee Pale Ale? In this episode we're joined by Kieran Johnson (who recently brewed one with BlackJack Brewery) as we delve into what ma ...…
