The Brew Is Out There!

RECIPE SHOW

On this week's episode of the Brew Files, it's time to pour one out for the parents in the brew world. Drew sits down with Tiffany Ashrafi, a Los Angeles area homebrewer, beer fanatic and mom-to-be, about her unique spin on making a beer for mom. With Mom covered, Denny and Drew sit down to talk about a beer for dad to have when tots are all grown up

Stand back everyone and hold our beer - we're going for a shorter show today! (Suspect Denny might need a temporary break from editing or something)

We do the feedback circuit, including a visit to the Correctional Department of Corrections, and then hit the pub for our recollections of Session Beer Day, some of our favorite April Fool's pranks from brewers (including one that wasn't actually a prank) and the upcoming Big Brew

Episode 37 - Answering Disaster's Call

A little different show this week and we warn you - it's a long one! We hit three main topics today, but first feedback.

With April Fool's Day right around the corner, it's time to explore how foolish we brewers are with a bunch of disasters stories! Stay safe people!

Then it's back to the Jeopardy stage where we questions answers about Recipes, Water and Troubleshooting - wait, strke that, reserve it.

The Brew Is Out There!

PROCESS SHOW

On this week's episode of the Brew Files, Drew and Denny tackle a question dropped on Facebook by listener Dan Tomkins. Dan asked just how do we tackle a new recipe - something we've never brewed before? Well, sit back and we'll walk you through just how we do the voodoo that is recipe creation.

Episode 36 - Sticky Hands, Stickier Questions

Sticky Hands!

To start the show, we hit the feedback slush pile, including a voicemail feedback about the Walmart lawsuit.

In the pub, it's a little different today as we sit down with Nick Arzner of Block 15 to drink one of Denny's favorite beers - Sticky Hands IPA. We discuss the origins of the beer and the secrets behind the powerful hop character the beer carries (pro tip - new fancy hop powders)

Episode 35 - The Mead Is In Session

We start with a round of feedback including a question about a potentially new style guideline and a reflection on one listener's experiment in making Cool Ranch Beer!

 

In the pub, rumblings are a foot about the Return of the Wrath of Conn at this year's HomeBrewCon in Minneapolis.  We tackle the problematic notion of "fake craft" beer and All About Beer's newly announced policy on sexist beer names. 

 

Draft Carbonation - Modified Slam/Shake vs. Gradual Carbonation

It's happened to us all - too many kegs, not enough time left to "properly" carbonate your beer before it needs to be served. Who knows, maybe you have a party or club meeting. Maybe you just need a beer, damnit.

Experiment Status: 

Does a modified slam and shake method result in a beer observably different than one done by the longer sit and wait methodology?

Brew Files - Episode 2 - The Crushable Cream Ale

The Brew Is Out There!

STYLE SHOW

This episode we give Denny's voice a rest as Drew explores one of his favorite beers to absolutely crush. (Yes, we know the irony of just talking about crushable on the other show, but if any beer style is crushable in a way that leaves you feeling respectable - it's cream ale). So sit back and let Drew tell you the story of Cream Ale - an American Original!
