Ep. 109: Bierstacheln

Beer + Fire = Bierstaheln! Bierstacheln (pronounced “beer shta-hll”) is an historic technique from Germany which means “Beer Spike” or “Beer Sting.” During this episode Tastemaster David is joined with Jason Stock, Kevin Templin and Joel Goodwillie to test out this old school technique. This trick is used with a heated metal rod and instantaneously forces the residual sugars in beer to caramelize and bring out a creamy marshmallow-ey character.

This is a fun Episode you do not want to miss out on!
