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!

Episode 151 – R3's Brewing Hustle

Back in 2017, Ray Ricky Riveria was working towards having his own brewery – Norwalk Brew House. Today, NBH is a reality, but not in the way you’d normally think. We examine how he’s partnering with breweries to grow his brand – one beer at a time. Who says you need to own shining metal tanks to have great beer?
