Sixpack won the Brewing TV brew session and beer kit at an auction benefit for Emma German earlier this year. The brew session takes place on his birthday surrounded by friends from his Jack of All Brews homebrew club and plenty of great beer. Join us for one hop-tastic brew day filled with interesting tips, a tour of Sixpack's basement bar and some High Voltage fun. click here to watch

General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing TV - Episode 34 - Decoction Day
« on: April 08, 2011, 01:12:42 PM »

Back to the garage! Join Chip and Dawson for another brew day - this time the beer is a dark Munich lager (with a twist) brewed with a double decoction mash. The Canoe Cam is busted out for more tasting notes, the dogs play some soccer, and BTV Cub Reporter Bryon Adams shows up after the work is done for some barley wine. Alles fur Brau, und Brau fur Alles.

With wind chills way into negative territory and a four-foot snowbank at home, Brewing TV hits the road for some fun in the sun. This episode finds Jake, Mike & Chip in the Bay Area of California on a whirlwind tour of some of their homie Jon Weber's favorite craft beer spots. Jon is the blogger/photographer behind Beer Obsessed and he knows his way around the Bay Area beer scene with stops in Marin County, Berkeley, and Oakland. After all that beer in one day, we kick back for a homebrew session with the always brewtal Nathan Smith as you drops mad hop bombs on his own North Oakland Double IPA and some dry-hopping projects. Get out your sunglasses and hit the road with Brewing TV!

One beer done two ways. Dawson brews a side-by-side comparison of partial mash vs all-grain. The lucky beer - Northern Brewer's new Surly Bender beer kit, part of the new Pro Series line of beer kits. See how the intermediate brewing method of partial mash (more accurately "mini-mash") benefits the flavor of your beer without adding hours to the equation. Then sit in on a taste test of both homebrews up against the real thing.

In November 2010, homebrew guru Jamil Zainasheff broke the news to Brewing TV: he was embarking on the journey of opening a commercial brewery called Heretic Brewing Company in the East Bay area of California. Three months later, the brewery is nearly ready to produce beer. Join Brewing TV as we tour the partner brewery that Heretic shares with E.J. Phair Brewing Company. And we get in on a preview tasting panel for some of Jamil's possible recipes for Heretic. No ordinary beer here!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing TV - Epiosde 28: Back to Basics
« on: January 14, 2011, 04:43:05 PM »

We begin 2011 by getting back to the basics - stovetop extract brewing. There ain't no shame in our game! And because Jake is completely out of homebrewed goodness at his house, the boys are making two beers at once. Jake is brewing a German Alt. Dawson has something special up his sleeve - a session-fied Cascadian Dark Ale. Three dudes. Two burners. One heck of a time looking at ways to get the most out of your extract brewing experience

New Year's Eve, a great time to reflect on the year past and get excited about the year ahead.

Three dudes, a brew kettle, a beer engine and plenty of homebrew make BTV 27 much more than just a clip show!

General Homebrew Discussion / Brewing TV: Episode 26 - Big Beer Brewing
« on: December 17, 2010, 02:06:54 PM »

Brewing TV embraces December's sub-freezing temperatures. In this episode, Dawson and Chip (and the brew dogs) brave the cold for an outdoor parti-gyle brew session. The fruits of their labor - a big ol' American barleywine, a smaller beer Dawson calls an American bitter, and lots of fun. Put on your puffy coat and gloves, grab a pint and think BIG! Dawson has a lot of tricks up his sleeve for this one.

« on: November 19, 2010, 01:58:31 PM »

Guest hosts Michael Agnew (A Perfect Pint) and Mark Roberts take us inside the magical process of making sahti. This traditional Finnish beer is generally prepared unhopped, unboiled and filtered through a bed of juniper branches, twigs and berries. Dawson once described it as "drinking Christmas in a glass."

We also hand over the reins to a father/son brew team for our Time to Brew segment.

At Brewing TV, we focus mainly on homebrew and craft beer. But there is a wide range of other (often ancient) fermented beverages that homebrewers have made their own. Among them - mead. In this episode, we visit with mead master Curt Stock to learn more about the process and payoff of making your own mead.

Whether you're a homebrewer or simply a lover of great beer in America -- we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Fred Eckhardt. Brewing TV was lucky enough to chat with Fred over a few pints. This is what he had to say about the past, present and future of good beer.
