Episode 42 – Hopping and Festing With Nick

Hey, guess what – it's our first repeat guest! (We think – who can keep track?)
But first, an announcement:
Homebrew Con (15-17)
14th – 6:00 PM Trivia at Chop & Bru Party – See ChopandBrew.com for ticket details
15th – Hold My Beer and Watch Me Science
16th – Panel: Building a Great Homebrew Club / Craftmeister / Book Signing / Podcast at BrewCraftUSA Booth
17th – Denny Rests, Maybe
In the feedback, we take a moment to re-visit some questions about Bio-Transformation and address some very pointed criticism about our Brew-Tan experiment.
In the pub, we enjoy a pint or two we raise a pint to Peter Simpson, talk a big beer slide, how to avoid selling out to the IPA-borg and a Chinese Bud Bust.
Inspired by the MBAA Master Brewers podcast, we stop by the library and look at Barth-Haas's latest dissection of hop flavor and aroma as spurred by all these fancy new hops we have at hand.
We stop in the brewery to review Drew's reviews of several malts, including those from our sponsor, Mecca Grade Estate. Which malt will reign supreme?
Then in the Lounge, it's a double dose of interviews – first, live from the Southern California Homebrewers Fest, Drew and Marshall Schott (Brülosophy) interview Kevin Baranowski about his attempt to wake everyone up at the Fest with a Sweet Stout served through a Randall stuffed with Bourbon soaked coffee beans. Then, with podcast magic, we blink our eyes and suddenly Drew swings up to the Bay Area and catches up with Nick Impellitteri about what's happening with the Yeast Bay.
Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip from a listener and inspired by our last Brew Files episode and Denny talks about his newest PBS obsession!
