How to increase the ABV of your brew and making an Electric Jellyfish IPA clone — HHH Ep. 119


It’s another episode of your favorite craft beer podcast!

A listener recently pointed out to me that it’s slightly redundant that we call ourselves a podcast about homebrew and craft beer, when homebrewed beer SHOULD be considered craft beer, so I’ve adjusted the headline of these show notes to only say “craft beer podcast” and we’ll probably discuss this topic on a future episode where I’ll go down a million unrelated rabbit holes and end up back to where we started… SPEAKING OF WHICH… thank you for joining us for this week’s episode! It’s our usual Q&A style but joining me this week is our favorite guy from, Mr. Ladik Joe Ermis. We’ve had Joe on a bunch and I’m super excited he was able to join me again to help tackle your homebrew-related questions!

On Today’s Show

I know we talk about submitting your questions via voicemail or text EVERY episode but I’ve been a terrible host and really slacked on actually using your voicemail submitted questions so that changes today. Using the voicemail hotline @ 325-305-6107, Aaron asked us a question about increasing the ABV of his homebrew. Joe has some great advice for Aaron and anyone else looking to do the same. We also took a question from Jeff who, upon learning that we’re (more or less) based out of the Austin area, asked how he could brew one of his favorite local beers from Pinthouse Pizza, their “Electric Jellyfish IPA”. Joe and I discuss the style and we’ve even included a recipe for it below. If you ever do visit Austin, Pinthouse Pizzas is definitely a place you need to check out!
