Episode 69 - Sunshine Hop Dreams and Disastrous Days

drew's picture

Two big things on today's show as we get ready for HomeBrewCon! The first, we asked you for your Brewday disasters and boy did you deliver. So we're going to run through some of our favorite stories of things gone horribly wrong. And in more positive and hopful news, Drew talks with Richard Smith of Florida Hops, LLC about the challenges of pulling off the improbable - growing hops in the humid heat of Florida. We'll find out new techniques he's establishing and the impact of Florida terroir on our favorite hops!
