In this episode, we talk about the experiences we’ve had with our new GigaYeast double pitch packs and have a short phone call with GigaYeast founder, Jim Withee. We haven’t had their products for very long, but we like what we’ve tried so far and we have a handful of beers we’ve brewed with them that we sample and discuss. We also have a split batch that we’ve used other yeast on to help us compare the differences. And who brought that split batch to help us out? Our friend Brandon Martin, who is joining us in the discussion.

In this longer than usual episode, we’ve invited our friend Kevin Lane from Fermentis back into the studio to join us in a discussion about the basics of recipe formulation. Hopefully, to help clarify the process for those of you that are still looking for answers. And later in the episode, we also had a surprise guest stop in to contribute to the show because James Lallande came by to add his thoughts on recipe development.

In this episode, we’ll discuss the process of getting started with kegging--from post fermentation practices like clarification through carbonation. We'll even cover some bottling. We almost always recommend that our customers move to kegging as soon as they have the space for a temperature controlled chest freezer or a standing refrigerator. We know that it’s an investment, but there hasn’t been a brewer yet to tell us that they regretted their decision to replace bottle conditioning with keg serving and storage. In fact, it often opens up a whole new avenue in the hobby of homebrewing, by allowing homebrewers a coordinated setup to play with, where they can start collecting things like tap handles or maybe even turn their chest freezer into a piece of fine beer filled furniture that fits in any room of their home.

In this episode, we invited our friends Amy Jones and Steve and Vicki Brown to sit in and talk with us about winemaking from ingredient kits and wine made from scratch using hand picked fruit (for example, mustang grapes). With a kit you can have a 5 to 6 gallon batch prepped and in a fermenter in around 30 minutes. Then, about a month later you’ll have 30 bottles ready to drink or lay down. While wine from scratch can take a little more time and effort.  But your reward is that it’s your creation. And you can apply that knowledge to more than just grapes. Hopefully our discussion helps you take that first step into new territory.

Episode 17 is all about the regular and imperial version of the standard English and American IPA. We cover some of the history and dive into some of the things you need to think about during recipe development to hit those target flavors you’re looking for in all three versions. Also, we have somelocal friends stop by who are working on their own podcast, Brew Styles.

In this episode, we have a discussion about the various techniques you might consider for chilling your wort after your boil and we also mention a few ways you can keep your fermenting beer temperature controlled. These are two areas that can and do make a large difference on your beer quality. We focus mostly on wort chilling and the ways you can accomplish the task. Ice bath chilling, immersion chillers, counterflow chillers, plate chillers, HERMS systems where the HLT is filled with ice water around the coil, we even hit no chill brewing and more! Hopefully everything you can think of as far as getting your boiled beer down to the proper pitching temps.

This episode covers several things, including why kettles are generally better than keggles for brewing, the good times we recently had in New Braunfels, TX at Guadalupe Brewing Co's third anniversary party, and a subject that many homebrewers are not aware of--keg and tap handle theft and the impact it has on the craft brewing industry.

This year's National Homebrewers Conference was in somewhat sunny San Diego and we were there! In this episode, we recap some of our experience and present a couple of interviews from the conference with Jim Ladd of the Cascade Beer Candi company and Denny Conn and Drew Beechum, authors of Experimental Homebrewing. Overall, we had a great time and met lots of great people in San Diego and wanted to share a few of the details.

In this episode, we talk to JB Flowers, head distiller and production manager, for The Acre Distillery LLC that is aiming for a grand opening this August in downtown Fort Worth. JB and other distillers are leading the way in a wave of craft distilled liquor that is growing as as fast as craft beer has for the last several years. So to all you appreciators of quality distilled spirits, keep your eyes open. Your selection is about to dramatically increase because they’ll have a full line up of spirits of all types, including specialties and bitters!

In this episode, we welcome the crew from The Best Little Brewfest in Texas, the only pro-brewers competition and 100% charity craft beer fest in the state of Texas. Every June, their goal is to impress you with over 80 breweries and 200+ craft brews--many of which are from Texas. In addition to that, you’ll also find craft ciders, Texas wines, and distilled spirits for sampling. All done with a focus on craft beer and making a difference.

In this episode, we sit down with Kevin Lane--the technical sales manager of the United States and Canada for Fermentis--to discuss yeast and the misunderstandings many brewers have about attenuation and flocculation. Fermentis is the supplier of many of your favorite dry yeasts, including Safale US-05 and S-04. Two of the most commonly used yeasts in homebrewing. And Kevin is a product expert. In fact, he will be presenting a seminar at the upcoming National Homebrewers Conference in San Diego entitled Selecting Yeast Based on Strain Characteristics and Applying Environmental Conditions to Promote Flavor and Aroma Production. So, if you’re going to the 2015 NHC, be sure to check him out and ask the questions you need answered.

In this episode we discuss a recent brewstand build that Derek and Pete recently completed. We also branch out a little and talk about some of the thoughts behind brewstand builds and the various things you should be thinking about if you are thinking of building your own stand. 

We hope you enjoy! Thanks for listening!

May 12, 2015

In this episode, we welcome our friend--and previous TBI employee--Brandon Martin to sit in with us as we discuss the steps, stages, and gear changes you need to move from extract brewer to all grain brewer. Brandon is a devout homebrewer and certified BJCP judge who has a special interest in helping brewers make that transition from basic to advanced. And you already know we all want you to be a better brewer.

Hope y'all enjoy! And be sure to contact us with feedback or show ideas!

Episode 8 delves into brewing on an electric system: how to build one, use one, and any points that should be considered if you’re thinking of making the transition to an all electric or hybrid system. Craig Gilbreath and Adam Blackard, both regular TBI employees, join in with their know-how and experience that ranges from beginning to advanced. Then we move onto coverage of the organization Homebrew for Heroes. A group founded to give something back to our heroes in the armed forces and who work as first responders. HB4h has grown over the last few years and with your help, they can only do more. In fact, later this year they’ll host their first homebrew competition at Shannon Brewing Co in Keller, TX with Operation Bravo. 

Hope you enjoy!

In this episode, we sit down with brewer Austin Heisch of Rahr and Son’s Brewing Co. to discuss brewing and fermenting lager beer styles and the history of the style. Rahr and Son’s Brewing is the grandaddy of the local Fort Worth craft brewery scene and they led the way over the last decade by brewing a variety of multiple-award winning beers, including both lagers and ales.

Episode 6 recaps our experience at the 2015 Bluebonnet Brew Off that occurred March 20th and 21st. It includes a chat with Justin Crossley from The Brewing Network, who was there as the keynote speaker, then we’ll move onto a discussion we had with Barrett Tillman of Black Man Brewing, who has an innovative new series of dry sour yeast packets.
