We here at Low Oxygen Brewing have years of research and testing behind our methods and processes. We continue to push the envelope and push the boundaries of where homebrewing meets commercial brewing.

Derek Scott –
Derek is an electrical engineer who started brewing, like many, with an extract kit gifted from his wife on his birthday in 2015. He is nearly completed with a brewhouse overhaul that started with his conversion earlier this year to Low O2 methods following a successful mini-mash. Like Bryan he uses Kunze as a main resource and enjoys re-reading it and applying commercial concepts at our scale. He is a small batch brewer and brings that perspective in contrast to The Beerery and Kit’s traditional cooler setup. Derek authored and developed the original Low O2 Brewing spreadsheet and strengthened and revised it with critical empirical support from Bryan and The Beerery. Derek is currently working on an original set of four Trappist inspired beers using Low Oxygen Techniques.
