I’ve been listening to James and Steve for 11 years and I’m always happy for them when June signals a well deserved podcasting break. However, I’m happier when July rolls around and We all get new episodes. Thanks for all of your humor, insight, and dedication to our hobby. I definitely recommend the show to anyone who enjoys home brewing. Cheers!
