The fine folks at NB filmed my talk at NHC this year. They just put it up online.

Great presentation Drew!  Wish I could have been there to taste the beer.  I've been brewing since October, and in life, I generally try to keep things simple.  I've adopted that to my brewing just so that I can get a feel for the process and also so that I can taste any changes that I make to my recipes.  It's really allowed me to also grasp what certain malts and hops do for the beer. 

I remember around January speaking w/ another homebrewer at a local brew competition (which I took 3rd in the "yellow beer" category) and he was showing me his Hefe recipe and it had about 4-5 different grains, 4 different hop additions and a dry hop.  Here I was with my simple wheat/pilsner bill w/ one dose of Hallertauer @ 60 min for my Hefe.  At that moment I felt that maybe I'm not putting enough effort into my recipes, but I continued to keep my recipes fairly simple.  So your presentation has given me a little reinforcement that maybe I'm doing alright w/ my brews by keeping them simple...although I do have a coconut milk stout that has rather large grain bill.  Every now and then it is fun to play mad scientist!  Also, it is amazing how a "simple" recipe can taste complex.

Nice talk Drew. I have the same problem as you with regards to hoarding supplies. I think for me it's more because of the shipping costs, I have to order in bulk.

I've been brewing this way for years now. My goal was simplification at all levels from ingredients to equipment.

Drew I particularly liked your pseudo decoction (making of the syrup) to enhance the brew yet remain within your criteria. Will have to try this.
