Disasters. Accidents. Incidents. Call them what you will, but a moment’s missed attention in the brewery can cause bad things to happen. In this episode, Denny and Drew cover some of the more common things that can happen and importantly, how to keep them from happening again!.
Vinnie Cilurzo has never forgotten his roots as a homebrewer and freely shares his knowledge with the crowd. We’re dropping you into the chaos of the 3rd Anniversary Happy Hour of the Maltose Falcons with Russian River as Drew, Vinnie and a cast of others, taste the classic Pliny the Elder and discuss what’s changed and why it works so well.
Homebrew clubs are awesome and we can prove it! Entering it’s 6th year, the American Homebrewer’s Association’s Radegast Club of the Year Award seeks to recognize the crazy amazing things they do.

After hearing our confusion and musing on “What is Cold IPA”, listener and brewer David Basile offered us his Cold IPA and his take and notes on the style! And to double up the IPA content – Denny sent Drew his latest West Coast DIPA to break down.
Distillation is an ancient art with new modern tools to make it even easier. Drew talks with Aaron Hyde about how you can easily distill hops, herbs, water and alcohol <where legal> with countertop devices like the new Air Still Pro.
The subject of water and most importantly, pH can be utterly confounding. Buffering capacity, acids, salt concentrations, “measurements expressed as” and temperature add to a mix of questions that baffle even experienced brewers. We sit down with Martin Brungard to work through common questions we see online to see if we can get answers!
