Future proofing your brewing set up and is it necessary to take gravity readings with extract brewing? — Ep. 143


How’s it hanging, Homebrewer?

– Thank you for tuning in to our home brewing podcast –

and we welcome you to the Homebrew Happy Hour … the podcast where we answer YOUR homebrewing questions and discuss all things related to craft beer!

On Today’s Show:

James is at the beach but Todd joined me to talk recent brew days, MY upcoming beach trip ( insert smiley face here) as well as take YOUR questions on home brewing beer!

Specifically, we discuss some best practices for a listener who is wanting to “future proof” her brewing set up but still be practical and not break the bank. We also take a question from a listener who brews extract recipes only and isn’t sure how important it is for her to be taking gravity readings throughout her brew day (Spoiler alert: you SHOULD be taking readings!).

It’s always blast hanging with Todd!

We want to hear from you!
