My family and I took a trip down to Blank Slate Brewing Company in Cincinnati Ohio. I was there to pick up some equipment that was no longer needed. I got to pick the brains of brewer/owner Scott LaFollette – a former polymer chemist like myself. Anyways, he currently runs a 7bbl system and kegs. He told me he is expanding into a taproom soon. I was able to sample two of his beers which were truly excellent. This man makes great beer! A chemist by trade, he knows all about brewing water, chemistry and how it affects beer flavor and the water treatment needed before brewing a batch. He also spoke of his unique style on seasonal beers that don’t follow the masses.
