Rank #1: 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.

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. Episode Links:

Rank #12: Episode 5 - Whirlpooling Around the Yeast Bay

Podcast cover
Read more
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. This time we're exploring if throwing hops into a whirlpool steep at a lower temperature (120F) makes a qualitative difference in the beer over throwing them in at the "new" recommended temperature of 170F. In theory, 120F should preserve more of the volatile aromatic compounds we care about, but does it actually matter? Back to the Bay Area we go with a pint at Oakland's very lovely Trappist where we talk with Nick Impellitteri of the Yeast Bay about his unique take on a yeast company and what he truly enjoys in regards to the little critters. He's got some fun directions he's hoping to take things and who knows - they may be future cross collaborations to happen! Finally we take your questions, Denny provides a little lesson in French and Drew tells us about the latest gadget he's gotten in his ill advised attempts to explode his heart via caffeine consumption. How about it, our fellow scientists - Are you ready for some hopping?!? Episode Links:

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! Back in Episode 1 we walked you through a triangle test, now it's time to use it! In this episode, we'll describe the experiment and a few episodes down the line, we'll bring you the results of the IGORs testing and take your results as well! Then we're off to the Bay Area, where if you read our blog, you'll know we talked to a bunch of brewers - this week, we bring you our interview with Jay Goodwin of the Rare Barrel in Berkeley as he drops a bunch of sour beer knowledge on our puny little heads. We'll then take your questions and see if we can't start a fight between Denny & Drew before Denny gives you a little working knowledge about your pump head and then talks to you about his love for the world's favorite silly instrument - the ukulele!

Rank #14: Episode 9 - Session, Session What's Your Libation

Podcast cover
Read more
It's Episode 9 - last call for questions before the big Q&A episode! (Send your questions to questions@experimentalbrew.com) We run off to the pub and discuss feedback abut the potential canning crisis, the unbearable BS of science, the now sold out Pacific Northwest Homebrewers Conference and Hops in Drew's hometown. And then to the lab where the guys launch the next experiment. Is there a detectable difference between adding Olive Oil as an aeration replacement and just not adding any aeration/oxygen at all! We go into the history of the whole Olive Oil excitement and why they think everyone has it a little wrong. With the approach of Session Beer Day - April 7th - we get beer writer extraordinaire and Session Beer Project creator, Lew Bryson on the phone and go through the history of the project, the beer day and what Lew ultimately wants to achieve! We take a brief detour to provide everyone with some homebrew advice so you can have a session beer of your own on tap for Session Day! Denny drops another quick tip from our AHA Forum friends - this time all about the tool box Drew then leaves us with a musical clip for the ages! Episode Links:

Rank #15: Episode 4 - Brew Year's Resolutions (A Meditation on Possible Failure) and the Best Amendment

Podcast cover
Read more
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. After that we return to Casa Verde to make plans and let the universe laugh at us as we reveal what our Brew Years Resolutions are. Seriously, that's just asking for failure. We'll see in a year no matter how much Denny protests the topic! Back to the Bay Area we go with another round of San Francisco treats as we bring you our first listener tasting ever. Things get a little dicey and Drew has to run. Warning the audio does get a little hairy! Note to listeners - if you know we'll be somewhere, feel free to bring beer for us to taste. It's a mandate of our parole from the Gambrinus Asylum for the Brewingly Insane that we taste your beer and offer critiques. Be warned though - you may end up on the air! Tasting concluded, we head to San Leandro and Rancho El Sully aka the 21st Amendment's gobsmackingly awesome production brewery in a former Kellogg's factory. We spend quite a bit of time chatting up one of the friendliest people in the brewing world, Shaun O'Sullivan and he reveals what it's like to grow from a wee little brewpub to a gianormous beer factory. Back in the lab, we take your questions about batch sparging, homebrew ruts, terrifying beer concepts and Denny's hair care regimen. Before we leave you for the episode, Drew also talks a little beer chemistry you should all know! Episode Links:

As we release this, Denny is somewhere recovering from invading the fine country of Belgium. Next episode we'll get into it. But on this episode, we wanted to step back and take a look at where we started on our journey of New England "Hazy" IPA (Episode 15), revisit one of the strange beer ideas Drew still gets questions about with Russell Everett's Cool Ranch Beer from Bainbridge Brewing(Episode 23) and the infamous Gin discussion that some of you probably didn't get to because it was in our April Fools episode (Episode 63).

Rank #17: Episode 11 - First Hops Then Rodney

Podcast cover
Read more
It's Episode 11 and experimental results are back! We start with listener feedback - namely, y'all really loved the Session Beer Recipe collection and the Q&A episode. Looks like we're going to have to keep answering questions!
At the pub, we talk about how hops are being explored as actual medicine and why sadly this doesn't mean your Quadruple IPA is about to become "healthy", how our sponsor PicoBrew went to 11 for Denny and discuss why we feel that bars and breweries should offer samplers (and why the money crunchers back us up on this assertion).
Then to the lab where we comb through the results of Denny's favorite experiment - First Wort Hopping vs. 60 minute bittering. First though we start with listener Tim Hagan's fairly clear explanation of the meaning of P-Value. We also talk about why some folks are encouraging a move away from P-Value as the end all be all of science. And then we dig into the experiment! What new and interesting twists did our IGORs find this time? Is there an actual impact here or are we living in a land of make believe?
We go to the Pacific Northwest Homebrewers Conference where Denny interviews Rodney Kibzey, multiple award winning brewer - no seriously, the man won the Sam Adams Longshot Competition twice. Rodney talks up his "secrets" for winning. So you might want to listen to the man.
Denny drops another quick tip from our AHA Forum friends - Don't Get Caught Up With The Shiny Gear!
Drew then leaves us with two something other than beers - Falcons nesting at Briess and then, because you, the listeners, asked Drew talks about how he lost 112 lbs in 13 months and still drank beer.

Rank #18: Episode 7 - A New Faction

Podcast cover
Read more
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. And then to the lab where the guys launch the next experiment - all about the First Wort Hop. This time out the crew is set on re-creating Denny's classic experiment that yielded inconclusive results about FWH. Ignore the recipe content in the podcast because the IGORs asked for a recipe change and who are the guys to deny them that? Once again, hoppy times are brought to you by NikoBrew.com! Time to announce the podcast's first charity project - Freedom Service Dogs of America. They're dedicated to rescuing and training shelter dogs to serve as support animals for the disabled, including returning vets. Join the podcast as a Patreon supporter to help rescue some pups! Back to the Bay Area for one last time as the gang returns to Faction Brewing in Alameda and the wide ranging Rodger Davis. We clarify (maybe) Rodger's dry hopping procedure for his infinitely hoppy beers. The guys talk through a bunch of other things like the love/not love of fork lifts, his team - the genesis of the White Stout style (found the culprit!) and his experimental hop series. (WARNING - Rodger is also prolific with his utterances and we're still working out where the line is and whether or not we caught them all - so be careful in this segment with the kids if you don't want them learning some words!) Finally Denny and Drew take your questions. Quick announcement about questions - looks like every 10th episode, the show will become an all (mostly?) Q&A show - so get your questions in and see how long you can make D&D answer questions! Denny takes a tip from Jeff Gladish about blending and Drew recommends a few new choice selections for your reading library (of non-beery things) So, are you guys psyched to get your First Wort Hop on?

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!
Then to the lab where Marshall joins the guys as they discuss the IGOR's results of their Olive Oil vs. No Aeration efforts. Can you use Olive Oil to cheaply replace aeration?
We go to Dallas where Drew talks with Barrett Tillman of both Black Man Yeast and Deep Ellum Brewing Company about his experiences as a brewer, his love of all things sour and funky and why he decided to start a mini-yeast company.
After that, we're off to the books as we try and answer more listener questions.
Drew adds a quick tip about immersion circulators and brewing
Lastly, the guys hit the kitchen as Denny offers some sourdough advice and Drew deals with a bunch of nut sacks.

Rank #20: Episode 14 - Season of the Bruce

Podcast cover

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.
In the library we discuss Scott Janish's great article about how dry hopping adds bitterness, just not the way you think it does!
At the lab where we talk the next experiment you can join in on - Saison Yeast and the dreaded "stall". Drew's advocated a simple change - open fermentation - to avoid the nasty tendency that WLP 565 and Wyeast 3724 have to start strong, take a two week nap and then finish the job. Is he right? Let's see!
We launch a new variety of interviews that we're tentatively calling "Unknown All-Stars" where we interview brewers that you may not have heard of, but that we think you should. For our first crack, we're talking with one of Drew's brewing mentors - Bruce Brode. A long time brewer, ex-President of the Maltose Falcons and one of the shaping forces of the BJCP Guidelines. You'll really want to hear all the knowledge Bruce can drop.
After that, we're off to the books as we try and answer more listener questions.
Lastly, the guys talk a bit about Prince (boo) and Drew's most recent YouTube obsession.
