The ultimate keg fridge

As some followers of this blog know, I have a penchant for an obsession with shiny things. In the last year I’ve spent a lot of time on building my new brewery… and with this new brewery, I have a slightly larger brewing capacity. Each brew day typically leaves me with a full 50L keg of beer to share. These 50L kegs take up a lot of space however, and if I wanted to have more than two beers on tap at a time I was going to need to figure something else out.

Hops in 3D!

After coming across Scott Janish’s exciting hop visualizations and tools yesterday, I needed to explore this Hopunion dataset for myself. I was excited to throw some statistical clustering and dimension reduction methods at the hop varieties on the basis of their oil composition. The oil composition of hops drive their distinct flavour and aroma contribution to beer… you can see why a brewer would be interested. In a simple case this information could be used to inform hop substitution, but more excitedly it could perhaps help develop new hop combinations in beer.
