Hello, and welcome to the 10-Minute Masterclass from I Am A Brewer. I’m Daniel Neilson and in this episode Canadian writer Stephen Beaumont is in conversation with the masterful brewer and blender, Armand Debelder of Belgium’s Drie-Fonteinen. He’s been making and drinking lambic since 1953. he talks about his Flemish origins, the amazing revival of spontaneous fermentation and the the most important thing for setting up a coolship.    

This episode of the 10 Minute Masterclass is brought to you by Crisp Malt which has lived and breathed malting since 1870. They combine traditional and modern techniques to create an impressive range of malted and non-malted products, including several unique and exclusive barley malts.

Next week I speak to Carl Heron, a brewmaster and brewing sales manager of Crisp Malt.
