Brew Files – Episode 165 – REPLAY – Extract with Jay

The Brew Is Out There!

Given all the recent talk about extract and brewing – its time to revisit a 2017 conversation!

Drew and Denny hit the phones with Jay Ankeney, a long time homebrewer in Los Angeles who’s been brewing longer than most of us. And interestingly – Jay still brews with extract and grains. Why does he still brew with extract? What are some of his tips and tricks and what does he do that either agrees or disagrees with prevailing wisdom. Well, you’re going to have to listen!

Brew Files – Episode 163 – Tom’s Not a NZ Pilsner

The Brew Is Out There!

Competition beer styles are a funny thing – sometimes a beer finds a home where it wasn’t intended, but the beer wins out regardless. Such is the case with Tom Fontes’ NZ Pils that isn’t really. Hear about the recipe and brewing it at Lawless Brewing!
