The Brew Is Out There!


On this week's episode of the Brew Files, 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!

I thoroughly enjoyed this

I thoroughly enjoyed this segment. Sometimes experience speaks volumes. I have a buddy who uses the plastic bag for fermenting in a bucket.
