Brew Files - Episode 2 - The Crushable Cream Ale

drew's picture

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!

The Brew Is Out There!

What's this? What's this? It's a new show from us! The Brew Files is our quick hit (~30 minutes) show dedicated to a specific brewing topic. No news, new extraneous guffawing and jawing - one topic, all beer, let's do this. Every week will tackle particular recipes, styles, techniques or ingredients.

RECIPE DESIGN SHOW

Episode 25 - BrewTan Your Questions Away

Joe Formanek

Second half of the Q&A episode is now ready for your listening and "learning" pleasure!

But first, before we dive into your questions, we're back with your feedback from the first Q&A episode and some Barley Crop Reports that we've cribbed from our friend Teri Fahrendorf and Denny reports on his eggs, because they're expensive!

Episode 16 - Lucky Transplants

drew's picture

It's HomebrewCon Week! As this episode goes live we're at the hotel in Baltimore getting ready to rock out with some homebrew! So this episode is going to be a real "quick" one (for us).

In feedback Denny talks about a great response he got from Spain and then Drew has to issue a correction from the Correctional Department of Corrections about a misstate he had about yeast strains. 

Episode 15 - All About the New England IPA

As we get ready to head to the NHC, our schedules get a little screwy (we have one more episode before the Wrath of Conn Con)

In feedback we hear about some fun experiences and a nice gesture on the part of a listener. Also we hear from others about Denny and Marshall's recent commentary about skipping over aeration/oxygenation

Episode 14 - Season of the Bruce

Another episode and a new feature! Read on!

In feedback we hear more about people's weight loss journies. Could we be on the way to skinny brewers? Also a listener chimes in to let us know that he won serious medalage with Drew's Peanut Butter Jelly Time recipe. 

In the pub, we talk our "plans" for Homebrew Con in Baltimore in June - a live Q&A, a Troubleshooters Corner, Book Signings and more! We talk about the 500th Anniversary of the Rheinheitsge-whatever and we revisit the Moonlight vs. Moonlight Trademark fight. 

Episode 13 - Olive Oil and Black Man

Another episode and this time we're here with Olive Oil results!

In the pub, we talk our "plans" for Homebrew Con in Baltimore in June - a live Q&A, a Troubleshooters Corner, Book Signings and more! We talk some gluten free barley, a new name for an old country and why some trademark fights make us sad.

A new room is added to the house as we sit down in the library to discuss the imminent release of Homebrew All-Stars! 

Episode 10 - You've Got Questions, We've got "Answers"

drew's picture

It's Episode 10 and it's finally time to see if we're as smart as we say we are. We discuss the listener response to our Session Beer efforts and promise to post a kickass list of session beer recipes. (Link below) We run off to the pub and discuss the recently concluded Pacific Northwest Homebrewers Conference and the lameness of "pink washing" and silly sexism.

Episode 7 - A New Faction

drew's picture

In Episode 7 - Denny and Drew take a spin through listener reactions to the first experiment results unleashed online and in the podcast. Then it's off to the pub where they discuss the rise of homebrewing around the globe (focused on an article about Indian homebrewers), Denny wields the eraser of correction about the beers he tried from Barrel of Monks and Drew talks up Lew Bryson's Session Beer Day project.

Episode 6 - What's Your Faction?

drew's picture

In Episode 6 - Denny and Drew look to even more listener feedback. In the pub we promulgate a public service announcement near and dear to Denny's heart, investigate rumors of nefarious hop dealings and reminisce about Denny's time in the big snowy territory of Vail. And then we go to the lab where we discuss the first ever results delivered by our IGOR crew. Is there a discernable difference between Wyeast 1056 and WLP001?

Episode 5 - Whirlpooling Around the Yeast Bay

drew's picture

In Episode 5 - Denny and Drew look back at the Brew Year's Resolutions where we've had a bunch of feedback from listeners. We talk in the pub about the latest in acquisitions with the sweet spicy addition of hypocrisy - throw in a little competition and Denny's soon to be appearance in Vail. After that we return to the lab to present our second experiment.

Episode 4 - Brew Year's Resolutions (A Meditation on Possible Failure) and the Best Amendment

drew's picture

In Episode 4 - Denny and Drew reflect on the feedback we received about our discussion of the decline of homebrewing before we head to the Pub to talk about socially conscious brewing projects like Lady Justice Brewing in Denver and we talk about the Brew Tube community and how they're coming together after a loss.

Episode 3 - Over a Barrel, Experimentally

drew's picture

PROFANITY WARNING - There are a few unbleeped blue utterances in this podcast - if you're sensitive to blueness, please wear headphones! In Episode 3 - Denny and Drew start out in the Pub talking about a distressing topic - the possible decline of homebrewing, the causes and what all of us can do about it. Then we get into the real meat of our whole show as we head into the Experimental Brewing Labs in Casa Verde - it's experimentation time!

Episode 2 - The Rise of the Robots

drew's picture

In Episode 2 - Denny and Drew talk about the rise of the brewing robots and what they mean for us homebrewers. Are our "jobs" about to be farmed out to a microchip that can make better beer than we can before we've have our morning coffee? Is it really still brewing if a computer is doing all the watching? Also, what does it mean to be Craft Beer?

Episode 1 - Of Triangles and Pumpkins

drew's picture

Holy Schnikes Batman - it's the first ever episode of Experimental Brewing with Denny and Drew. In this episode, you'll hear Drew actually be right (according to Denny) about the recent spate of craft beer mergers, the absolutely fundamental bedrock technique of triangle testing, Guinness, statistics and math (wait did that survive the edit?

Episode 0 - The Podcast Approacheth

drew's picture

Listen to the dulcet tones of one Mr. Denny Conn as he explains to you what Experimental Brewing with Denny and Drew will be all about! That's right two of your "favorite" authors - Drew Beechum and Denny Conn are bringing you a new show about the wackiness of beer science and the science of beer wackiness!

Where's Drew? Why isn't he in the trailer? Has he turned to the Dark Side of the Force? You'll just have to wait and see for when the podcast drops on November 11th (or the 18th - things are a bit wishy washy in the world of the Internet)!
