Michael Agnew is a relatively prominent figure in the Twin Cities beer scene.  He regularly writes beer columns for the major local publications.  I ran into him at the Autumn Brew Review in Minneapolis back in September.  Nice guy, and extremely knowledgeable!

Congrats on the co-authorship, Denny!  That's awesome!

Diane, that's not the book that Drew and I are doing.  This is another one, where I just contributed a few recipes.  "Experimental Brewing" is still in progress, hopefully finished by the end of this year and released next Nov.
You're supposed to be retired now! Good-oh for having an opportunity to do even more in a pursuit you're both knowledgable and passionate about. (See, I don't hold any hard feelings about the "16" you scored my beer in that "mystery beer" challenge....btw, you were the high score of the 4 judges......you slime sucking !@$$#) I still think it was funny you guys had to taste that stuff.

I gotta say that after smelling it, we all looked at each other like "Oh my God, we've got to drink this!".  But we did....

I was just a minor contributor, but it's still a thrill to see my name on the cover.

Sounds like Pro Brewer advice for the home brewer? If so - I'm in!

Billy Broas has a nice homebrewing blog: BillyBrew.com. He also writes for HomebrewAcademy.com. Both he and Denny are good candidates for picking brewers' brains.

Couldn't find much info via Google search... is it still in the works?

Available on Amazon for Pre-Order. Looks like January release.

Ships Dec. 16. goes on sale Jan. 1.
So you say . . . but amazon says it won't be delivered until 1/17. ;)

So Denny, now that your a hip celebrity, and spending all this time writing books, when are you going to have time to brew now? :))

Now that he's a hip celebrity, does this mean we are one step closer to the Denny and Keith reality TV show?

When the book's done!  Actually, with the weather the way it is, the brewery is closed down until it warms up.

Diane, that's not the book that Drew and I are doing.  This is another one, where I just contributed a few recipes.  "Experimental Brewing" is still in progress, hopefully finished by the end of this year and released next Nov.

Tell me how and when I can get my signed copy ;D

Do we have to bring you beer in exchange for a signature?
