On Today’s Show:

We’ve been having a lot of guests on the show lately and I love it. I especially love our guest for this week’s show, Lorena Evans!
She’s been in the scene for a long time and is best known as Yooper on our favorite forums Homebrew Talk and our favorite brewing software Brewer’s Friend.
Lorena is, without a doubt, the best fermenting specialist that I know. She’s an incredible brewer and has a TON of knowledge stored in her head. Seriously – ask her anything about fermentation and she’ll have THE answer for you. It’s incredible.
If you’re not a fan of episodes we do where we digress all the time and have a hard time staying on topic, then you *might* not fully enjoy this week’s show. It was my fault but I just had so much fun with Todd and Lorena out on the ranch patio that it was hard for me to not geek out and enjoy myself in the conversation.
However, if you’re a fan of fun and organic conversations among friends then I highly recommend that you stick around and enjoy an interview with one of our most favorite people in the world.
