Experimental Brewing podcast Episode 25
« on: October 12, 2016, 04:45:47 PM »
https://www.experimentalbrew.com/podcast/episode-25-brewtan-your-questions-away

Second half of the Q&A episode is now ready for your listening and "learning" pleasure!

But first, before we dive into your questions, we're back with your feedback from the first Q&A episode and some Barley Crop Reports that we've cribbed from our friend Teri Fahrendorf and Denny reports on his eggs, because they're expensive!

Then we grabbed a chance to talk with multiple (no, really, multiple) award-winning homebrewer Joe Formanek. Normally we'd subject Joe to the whole twenty questions routine because seriously the man's impressive, but you can go read his profile in Homebrew All-Stars until we get back to that. Why the wait? Because Joe has an interesting new brewing product that he's helping spread the word on - Brewtan B. What is Brewtan B? Well, listen to the episode and find out.

Speaking of finding out - we're happy to announce our next experiment - this one is completely focused on figuring out if Brewtan B does what it says on the tin. (And in that spirit we're giving our IGORs some time to have some fun as well)

Then we get into your questions. For convenience's sake we've divided the questions into general topic categories. This episode we tackle Packaging and Philosophy Questions.  We even have more "live" callers!

Maybe it hadn't propagated yet?  Just checked Apple Podcast on my iPad and it was there now.

Per 5 gallons is my understanding. But I'm not sure what to use if I have 4 gallons of strike water, or 4.5 gallons of strike water and 3.5 gallons of sparge water...

Probably should weigh out a 1/4 tsp and go by weight/volume of water.  Maybe do a few samples to average the weight, if 1/4 tsp is difficult to measure out...

Try measuring 1/12 of a teaspoon for my little 1.7-gallon batches.

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

Same here. Could be one of many causes including the fact that the podcast app sucks. It works better than it did, but it often stalls on downloads and doesn't update the feed very quickly.
