How do I know if my beer is ready to drink? — Ep. 145


Hey! We’re happy to have you back!

– 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 Carlson from CMBecker International graciously joins me to discuss some questions about determining when a homebrewed batch is ready to consume, and we also take a question about James’ decoction method.

Todd was unable to join us because he, unfortunately, is dealing with an excruciating pinched nerve and is trying to get better from that. I promise that I had NOTHING to do with it despite me challenging Todd to professional wrestling cage matches for many years.

Either way, we hope you enjoy this week’s episode as much as we enjoyed producing it!

We want to hear from you!
