Brew Files – 136 – Homebrew Summer

 

The Brew Is Out There!
We often talk about the connection between homebrewing and commercial brewing, but in the case of San Diego Beer News’ “Homebrew Summer” – it’s the literal truth. We’re talking to Brandon Hernández, who’s organized the herculean effort to bring brewers, pro and am, together to celebrate the magic of beer.

Episode 159 – pH with Martin

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!
