Extra footage of our interview with Swedish homebrew/craft brewer Mikael Holmlund that didn’t make the cut for the original video Chop & Brew – Episode 54: Homebrew Svagdricka. Mikael talks a bit about his homebrewing set up, building a craft brewery in a historic fire house, and the Swedish beer styles of Gotlandsricka and svagdricka.
We learn to homebrew a Swedish style of beer called svagdricka with the advice and help of our friend, Swedish homebrewer/craft brewer Mikael Holmlund. Think of it as an even more sessionable version of an English dark mild. It’s a fun beer to brew and drink. [Original postdate: December 31, 2016] Related Links: Svagdricka Homebrew
