Milk the Funk (MTF) began as a Facebook group to get home brewers interested in more advanced and “funky” topics talking on March 6, 2013. Since its inception, Milk the Funk is becoming a communal authority on alternative yeast and bacteria fermentation with an emphasis in alternative brewing techniques.
Similar to Wikipedia’s purpose to benefit readers by acting as an encyclopedia (a comprehensive written compendium that contains information on all branches of knowledge). Milk the Funk Wiki will provide a more focused and controlled narrative on alternative yeast and bacteria fermentation with an emphasis in alternative brewing techniques. We also wish to provide industry knowledge by providing brewery bios of breweries experimenting in the same subject that wish to participate. This Wiki is an early work in progress, but information will be continually added as it is received. YOU are what will make this Wiki successful!
Milk the Funk “The Podcast” talks about mixed and alternative fermentation for beer, wine, mead, and cider. “The Podcast” is an extension of the Milk the Funk Facebook group and wiki, where you will find the most up to date discussion on the science and techniques of mixed fermention. The goal of Milk the Funk “The Podcast” is to cover the science we talk about in Milk the Funk, and to give some airtime to members who are involved in our group, including scientists, professional brewers, homebrewers, and beer historians. Our focus will be on specific topics discussed on the group page and bringing guests who we see as experts or innovators in that topic.
