Brewer's Perspective - Recipe Development October 2021

In this episode of Brewer’s Perspective, we’re joined by Richard Watkins, Co-Founder and Head Brewer at BentSpoke Brewing Co.

During the conversation, we discuss recipe development and how brewers can plan for a beer’s ultimate purpose from the first stages of conception and planning.

Crowned three times as Australian Champion Brewer, Richard also believes he is Australia’s longest-serving craft brewer. He spent much of his career as head brewer at Canberra’s renowned Wig & Pen before embarking on the venture that is BentSpoke Brewing Co with partner Tracy Margrain.
