On Today’s Show:

First and foremost – we hope you are hanging in there and keeping healthy during these weird times. “Weird” is about as appropriate word as we can think of. I said this in a newsletter and I’ll say it again — if you need anything, ANYTHING, that we can provide or help you with then please don’t hesitate to ask. We love you guys and will get through all of this together.

On the show — James and Todd join me, remotely, to take your questions on adjusting your brew days when life throws you lemons (i.e – when you’re in quarantine at home!), choosing a grain mill to buy, and mill settings when crushing grains for partial mash brewing.

We want to hear from you!
