It's back - it's science time! But first... we hit the feedback back, talk about some elections and other beer news - including Sierra Nevada's throwback beer move and the new beer style that's got people up in arms. In the library we discuss whether or not Prohibition was a good thing for beer and why American versions of British beers seem to fall short - according to the Brits. In the brewery, Drew discusses a very cool charity he just worked with and YCHops sets the record straight on the hop glut. In the lab, we look at the hot hop topic of BioTransform from the results of our IGORs. In the lounge, we sit down with Brad Ring from BYO to discuss their boot camp format before we close out with the Q's & the A's, quick tip and say goodbye to one of the best actors Denny ever got to work with.


The Brew is Out There! 

The Olympics may be over, but that doesn't mean we're not still pursuing our dreams of winning medals in our favorite sport. To help you get onto the podium, we sit down and talk with Nick Corona of QUAFF and the 2016 American Homebrewers Association's Homebrewer of the Year. He talks his way of planning his entries and the subtle strategy of style choice.

A lot of people are asking questions about cryo hops.  Here's a blog post I did for YCH....


In a first for the podcast, we have a guest interview. IGOR Eric Pierce brings us a conversation with John Wei of Brewlander & Co in Singapore. How did he get started with good beer? What does it take to find ingredients and why did make the job to go pro? Find out! We also sit down and cover the beer world - Hazy IPA going national, Drew's quixotic LA quest, the notion of courtesy scoring and hey.. what's that? Why yes, we're announcing another experiment! Sit back and get ready to listen!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brew Files Podcast Ep. 30 - Wild for Mild
« on: February 21, 2018, 04:53:57 PM »

With Session Beer Day right around the corner (April 7th), it's time to visit one of Drew's absolute favorite beer styles - Mild. This blandly named style has a long and interesting history with many variations of what it means to be mild. So how about digging into one of the best beers you can quaff over a long session. Flat caps optional, but awesome beer is mandatory.


You know the rule - when the remainder of the division of an episode number and the number of months in the Gregorian calendar is zero, the sleeper awakens and sounds forth with pronouncements induced by the querying missives of the seekers of truth.

*cough* What we mean to say is every 12 episodes, we take your questions and try our best to give you an answer or two or three in some cases. Sit back! It's answering time!


The Brew is Out There!

Last year, Peter Symons led us all through a discussion of early Australian brewing practices and he promised he had more up his sleeve. Get ready to look up his sleeve and we explore the unique Australian take on Prohibition and how the Australian brewing industry modernized in his new book 6 O'Clock Brews


In our ongoing efforts to try and learn everything - and fail miserably - we revisit Denny's question from Episode 58 about dried lager strains labelled like ale strains. After much listener input, Drew sits down with Bryan Heit of Sui Generis Brewing to get the current scientific picture on yeast genetics. It turns out science makes for really complicated answers! Plus, we talk retirement, rough times for craft brewers, charity and how lasers are making better beer before digging into your questions. Finally, we close out with Denny's favorite new cooking show!

The Brew is Out There!

Although the season marches invariably onwards towards the warmer temperatures of Spring and Summer, we still have our nice cool climes and the opportunity to enjoy our cellar treasures. But while we're digging into the cellar for those riches, maybe we should replenish them while long brewing days are still pleasant! In this episode, we'll walk you through our expriences making big beers - our secrets - and offer up two of the finest we've made. Sit back and break out the barleywine!


On this week's episode, it's fully the new years which means it time to see just what we're going to fail at this year! And we're bringing you along for the ride! But first, a Christmas Miracle, some expired LME and being mindful in the pub. In the Brewery, Denny has some questions about dried lager yeast - can you help him out? In the Lab, we get an update on the IBU test Denny's operating through. And then finally we hit the list - we talk about how "well" we did last year and what we plan to try and win at this year! You listeners also had a bunch of suggestions for resolutions, so let's see! Finally, we close out with a pair of new history podcasts from Drew and get you on your merry way!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brew Files Podcast Episode 27 - Lager Myths
« on: January 10, 2018, 08:12:34 PM »

The Brew is Out There!

While it's nice and chilly in most of the US, we figured what better time to sit down and talk with Zymurgy editor and Lager afficionado, Dave Carpenter about the wide world of lagers, myths about them and why you should be making them at home. Oh and did we mention Dave has a book about Lager as well?


On this week's episode, we announce our new charity - it has a personal connection for Denny. We hit the pub and talk a fund raiser for IGOR Miguel's daughter's cancer fight at Rouleur Brewery and we dig out the crystal balls to see what we can see for the world of homebrewing and craft brewing for 2018. In the brewery we look through Drew's notes from the latest Zymurgy Live with Dogfish Head. In the Lounge, we sit down with Garrett Garfield, a transplanted Texan turned Chilean homebrewer and professional mead maker about the scene in Chile and what challenges he faces.

And after we tackle a few listener questions, Drew will leave you thunderstruck with his something other than beer.


The Brew is Out There!

New Years is almost here with it's Janus like powers of transformational drive. Denny and Drew sit down and review how they organize things in the brewhouse to make the brew day easier and more likely to happen. How do you organize things?


On this week's episode, we hit the pub to talk the beer business before jumping into the hot unwanted guest topic of the day - What is Saccharomyces Distaticus, why is it in the news and how do we kill it? And then we take a listener suggestion for an end of the year wrap up - with a revisit on some of our favorite questions and answers from the non-all Q&A shows.

And then of course Drew leaves you with the most obvious current movie recommendation every because yeah..
