Episode 59 - Yeast Mysteries with Sui Generis

Podcast cover

In our ongoing efforts to try and learn everything - and fail miserably - we revisit Denny's question from Episode 58 about dried lager strains labelled like ale strains. After much listener input, Drew sits down with Bryan Heit of Sui Generis Brewing to get the current scientific picture on yeast genetics. It turns out science makes for really complicated answers! Plus, we talk retirement, rough times for craft brewers, charity and how lasers are making better beer before digging into your questions. Finally, we close out with Denny's favorite new cooking show!

Episode 15 - All About the New England IPA

Podcast cover
Read more
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
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! The Brewers Association gets their history on with one of America's great institutions - The Smithsonian. Denny talks his overwhelming experience at the Craft Brewers Conference. And lastly we ask "Has Craft Beer Gone Too Far?"
In the library we discuss a great article from the Counter Brew website that does a really excellent job laying in the ground work for your knowledge about Brett.
At the lab where we talk the recent obsession with the hazy style called "New England IPA". Specifically we cover the history and the theories behind the style and the infamous, hotly debated murk. And so we're going to launch a full series of explorations, because of course we will. For this first time, we're going to look at yeast impact - namely Wyeast 1056 and Wyeast 1318 in the same wort. Is one murk-tastic? And to back it up, listener Jason Faylor sent in a pair of beers with exactly this same premise so we get our tasting on (and prove that Denny and Drew can really disagree about things)
For the interview segment, we grab some time with John Holl - editor of All About Beer Magazine. We offer him a chance to lay down his opinions and his colorful New Jersey beliefs. It's an interview that exercised Denny's bleeping finger. We think we got them all!
After that, we're off to the books as we try and answer more listener questions.
Denny reminds us all to test your thermometers!
Lastly, Drew fondly explores the world of CorgiOrgy.com and some incredibly sexy Russian cakes.

Episode 42 - Hopping and Festing With Nick

Podcast cover
Read more
Hey, guess what - it's our first repeat guest! (We think - who can keep track?)
But first, an announcement:
Homebrew Con (15-17)
14th - 6:00 PM Trivia at Chop & Bru Party - See ChopandBrew.com for ticket details
15th - Hold My Beer and Watch Me Science
16th - Panel: Building a Great Homebrew Club / Craftmeister / Book Signing / Podcast at BrewCraftUSA Booth
17th - Denny Rests, Maybe
In the feedback, we take a moment to re-visit some questions about Bio-Transformation and address some very pointed criticism about our Brew-Tan experiment.
In the pub, we enjoy a pint or two we raise a pint to Peter Simpson, talk a big beer slide, how to avoid selling out to the IPA-borg and a Chinese Bud Bust.
Inspired by the MBAA Master Brewers podcast, we stop by the library and look at Barth-Haas's latest dissection of hop flavor and aroma as spurred by all these fancy new hops we have at hand.
We stop in the brewery to review Drew's reviews of several malts, including those from our sponsor, Mecca Grade Estate. Which malt will reign supreme?
Then in the Lounge, it's a double dose of interviews - first, live from the Southern California Homebrewers Fest, Drew and Marshall Schott (Brülosophy) interview Kevin Baranowski about his attempt to wake everyone up at the Fest with a Sweet Stout served through a Randall stuffed with Bourbon soaked coffee beans. Then, with podcast magic, we blink our eyes and suddenly Drew swings up to the Bay Area and catches up with Nick Impellitteri about what's happening with the Yeast Bay.
Finally we tackle questions we can answer. Drop a quick tip from a listener and inspired by our last Brew Files episode and Denny talks about his newest PBS obsession!

Episode 65 - Travels with Paula

Podcast cover

We're still in New Zealand, but this time we're joined by Denny's better half as she walks us through her experience exploring the beers of New Zealand. What stories did she discover about the breweries (and her thought about their IPAs)? And then Denny hits the fields to discover how hop research is carried out in New Zealand! IN the pub, it's all the news fit to drink to, including Denny's anniversary and ABI's impact on homebrewing. In the library we cover some great recipes from Jester King before talking about a new IPA style and why people are confusing it for something Belgian, a little science tease and of course a quick tip and Denny's new cooking obsession.

The Brew is Out There! TECHNIQUE SHOW
Water is an important chemical - without it we wouldn't have beer! And for something that comprises so much of our beer, the chemistry we need to know to brew our best beer is Daunting - with a capital D. Drew sits down with Martin Brungard, creator of Bru'n Water, to demystify water chemistry and realize the functionality of Martin's mathmagical spreadsheet.

On this week's episode, it's fully the new years which means it time to see just what we're going to fail at this year! And we're bringing you along for the ride! But first, a Christmas Miracle, some expired LME and being mindful in the pub. In the Brewery, Denny has some questions about dried lager yeast - can you help him out? In the Lab, we get an update on the IBU test Denny's operating through. And then finally we hit the list - we talk about how "well" we did last year and what we plan to try and win at this year! You listeners also had a bunch of suggestions for resolutions, so let's see! Finally, we close out with a pair of new history podcasts from Drew and get you on your merry way!

The Brew is Out There!
PROCESS SHOW
Drew sits down with Jeff Alworth, writer of the Beervana blog and podcast and the recent The Secrets of Master Brewers to talk what lessons Jeff discovered while touring a bunch of different brewing cultures. Together they explore the notion of national brewing identities and why many factors, including the Cold War, make the beers of Bohemia radically different from the beers of neighboring Bavaria. Also, does the US have a "brewing identity"?

Episode 62 - Transforming the Boot Camp

Podcast cover
Read more

It's back - it's science time! But first... we hit the feedback back, talk about some elections and other beer news - including Sierra Nevada's throwback beer move and the new beer style that's got people up in arms. In the library we discuss whether or not Prohibition was a good thing for beer and why American versions of British beers seem to fall short - according to the Brits. In the brewery, Drew discusses a very cool charity he just worked with and YCHops sets the record straight on the hop glut. In the lab, we look at the hot hop topic of BioTransform from the results of our IGORs. In the lounge, we sit down with Brad Ring from BYO to discuss their boot camp format before we close out with the Q's & the A's, quick tip and say goodbye to one of the best actors Denny ever got to work with.

The Brew is Out There!
The Maltose Falcons needed a lot of beer for our 45th Anniversary Party and we got some of our favorite breweries in LA involved in the mayhem. In this episode, Drew sits done with the wild and wacky crew at Transplants Brewing Company to discuss making a Pumpkin Beer that's not a Pumpkin Beer in more than just one way. And then Drew shares his thoughts on the final beer along with the recipe that inspired it.

Episode 105 - Revisit - You've Got Questions, We've got "Answers"

Podcast cover
Read more
Denny and Drew are recovering from their road trip! So here's a revisit of our very first Q&A show
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. And then to the lecture hall where "Professors" Denny and Drew sit down and try and see how long they can fake actually knowing anything. For listener ease we've broken the questions up into categories so you can find things more easily. OVer the course of twenty some odd questions we tackle questions about ingredients, process, styles, yeast and everything else. Before we leave, Drew gives a brief shout out to two very impactful passings that recently occurred. One to the man whose decision in the 70's still impacts us to this day. The other, well, that one's more important to Chihuahua owners.
