Podcast 10-Minute Masterclass: Mastering lagers with Luc Lafontaine

Brewing perfect lagers with Luc Bim Lafontaine of Canada’s Godspeed Brewery

Hello, and welcome to the 10-Minute Masterclass from I Am A Brewer. I’m Daniel Neilson and in this episode, we cross the Atlantic and talk to Luc Bim Lafontaine whose Godspeed Brewery is producing some of Canada’s best beer. You may recognise Luc’s name from his time at the Quebec brewery Dieu du Ciel. You see Luc’s German beers such as Otsukaresama Dortmunder and Ibushi Smoked Pilsner are among the best we’ve ever tried. The Japanese names are a nod to his influences and wife. Here, he talks to me about how to get the cleanest lagers you can.

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 we have Canadian writer Stephen Beaumont talking to Dri-Fontaine’s Armand Debelder about blending.
