Episode 12 - Going Stale

drew's picture

It's Episode 12 and we're announcing our next experiment amongst other things! We start with listener feedback - everyone was intrigued by and puzzled by the results of our First Wort Hop experiment. So were we!

At the pub, we talk about how the results of the GC election with lots of teasing that's not meant to be taken seriously! We announce that we have "plans" for Homebrew Con in Baltimore in June. Denny gets to rant and rave at the moon with his latest pet peeve and Drew shares an awesome example of how sometimes the customer isn't right at all.

We make a quick stop in the brewery to talk about getting your beer can on

Then to the lab where we dig into every homebrewer's experience. You go to the homebrew shop full of good intentions, buy some grain and mill it. Then you can't brew for a month or two - is your grain still good? Oh bother - guess we'll find out, won't we? 

We go to the Pacific Northwest Homebrewers Conference where Denny interviews Annie Johnson - one of our favorite brewers. Not only has she won two amazing brewing achievements - AHA Homebrewer of the Year and Pilsner Urquell's Masterhomebrewer, but she manages to keep a playful side to her brewing. Listen and learn! (Including her secret obsession)

After Annie, we hit the books for a couple of questions, including one that really made us do some research to avoid our knee jerk "are you kidding us?" reaction. That was awesome!

Denny drops his quick tip about being a yeast abuser. 

And then Denny talks about his soon to be assembled chicken coop and the artisans behind it. Drew then drops two things - Billy Dee is back as Colt 45's spokesman and Sweden has a phone number. Yup, Sweden. It's awesome.

Well

Is my iTunes download horked up or does this episode really sound like you guys are broadcasting it from the bottom of a well in the middle of a crowd for the first 12min 30sec or so?  Your voices are almost completely inaudible.

One more issue...

At around 1hr 9min or so there's some loud music that plays over your first question in the Q&A section.  Only lasts like a minute or two.

Oh, and I deleted my iTunes version of the podcast then re-downloaded and the first 12min or so was indeed fixed.

iTunes Podcast problem?

It looks like Episode 11 is under a whole new podcast (having the same thumbnail and name) that is not linked to the other 10 episodes in terms of subscription and other settings.

Episode 12 is not showing up in iTunes at all.

Maybe it's just me?
