In this episode, we tag along with Furthermore brewer Aran Madden as he deconstructs IPA and rebuilds it ... with spices. Then in Time To Brew, Jake and Michael take it out and chop it up with a split batch.

Brewing TV episode 1.8 now up!

We recap the 2010 National Homebrewer's Conference.
It was a grueling week, and some long hours were spent getting this to you all.   We hope this is a trip down memory lane, or chance to live vicariously through BTV at this year's record breaking conference.

all for brew, brew for all!

- Time to Brew: Tasting the Topless Hefeweizen
- Mark Stutrud, founder of Summit Brewing Company and keynote speaker at 2010 National Homebrewers Conference

BTV viewers asked for it, here it is. We begin this episode with some quick tasting notes on Dawson's Topless Hefeweizen brewed and open-fermented in Episode 4.

Our main segment focuses on Mark Stutrud, founder of Summit Brewing Company. Mark tells us about the changes he's seen in beer culture over the last 30 years, the argument of style vs. brand, and importance of homebrewing

Going to NHC this summer? Brewing TV will be there, too. Maybe you'll make it into a future episode.


General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing TV ep. 5
« on: June 04, 2010, 01:37:27 PM »
1.5 - Green Dragon Project/Jake's ESB

Episode 5 is up at

In this episode, we profile the Green Dragon project in Portland OR. One lucky member of the Oregon Brew Crew gets to brew a batch on John Maier's (of Rogue Ales) old rig, then serve it (and sell it!) to the public.

During Time to Brew, Jake's forgets the simplest piece of equipment, so some MacGyver tactics are needed to keep the brewing mojo going.

Episode #4 now up at

We talk with Jeremy King, a yeast guru about the mystery of open fermentation.  Turns out, not so mysterious after all and totally doable for homebrewers. BTV's own Mike Dawson gives it a whirl and takes his top off.

What is Brewing TV?

Brewing TV's mission is to cover the world of homebrewing through the magic of video. There are so many stories to be told, brews to be brewed, and people to profile … in other words, no shortage of segments and content to be shot. The homebrewing community has always been a strong one, whether it's your LHBS, a club in your city, you and some friends brewing in your kitchen on a weekend afternoon, or an online forum with rabid regulars. Brewing TV is a place where those different communities can connect and hear about what homebrewing has been, what it is, and where it is going. Brewing TV is a voice for homebrewing culture ... the "why," not the "how."

Site is up and alive now. 1st episode drops May 7th. Check it, after all, it's for you guys!

Events / Northern Brewer NHC events planned!

Howdy everybody.
We posted a page detailing our pre-con and conference events and plans.

The big event is a joint party with The Brewing Network to celebrate their 5 year anniversary and our, uh, 17 year anniversary.
It's on the 16th, so we hope to as many pre-con goers as possible.  Tons of great craft brew and homebrew...FREE shuttle buses to and from the event and the hotel....swag...raffle...antics.  It will be in our new 6000 sq. feet of warehouse space (knocked holes in the walls just the other day).

If you can't make the party, come on by for a tour of our warehouse, or at least have a beer with us at our booth in the Hospitality suite.

We're going all out this year.  Heck, it's our hometown!
Can't wait to see you all!
