I wasn't too impressed with the fist episode, other than the hunt for the little metal rod. But I enjoyed the second, Chica, episode.
Aside from the chewing and spitting of the corn, they showed one lady that let the corn germinate then used it to brew Chica. No saliva involved. Might be interesting to make a small batch that way.
I haven't watched the third episode yet, but am interested in seeing how DFH makes it Punkin Ale.
