On Today’s Show:

Can you believe that it’s already the middle of August? Sorry, the thought just popped in my head that 2020 has been such a weird year AND it feels like its flying by. Crazy…

ANYWAY – we have a great show because Todd and James were both able to join me and take YOUR questions because we all know I couldn’t do it by myself.

Specifically: we compare 110v and 220v all-in-one brewing systems (like the Robobrew, Mash & Boil, Grainfather, Anvil Foundry, etc) and why you might want one version over another. We also discuss what could be causing a “sour apple” off flavor that a listener is experiencing in her batches of beer, then we talk about adding adjuncts to your beer and when is the best time to do it.

We want to hear from you!
