Should you tell the bar or brewery when you taste an off-flavor plus a question on using over-sized kettles when extract brewing — HHH Ep. 110


Welcome back to another episode of our homebrew podcast!

Thanksgiving is over and we’re stuffed. We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and loved ones and we hope you also were able to score some sweet homebrewing supplies during the madness that was Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend! We’d be remiss if we also didn’t mention how thankful we are for you as a listener and supporter of our show. We still don’t fully understand what you like about this show but we’ll keep producing it if you’ll keep listening! 😉

On today’s episode we take our first voicemail call from a listener who experienced off-flavors while recently visiting an out-of-town bar and he was wondering what OUR approach would be when informing the bar or brewery about an off-flavor. We also discuss a question from a listener who bought a 15 gallon kettle even though they’re still doing 5 gallon extract batches and he’s curious if he should use a smaller kettle or what options he has so he doesn’t have to shelve his awesome new 15 gallon Spike kettle for the time being.

As always, If you have a question that you’d like us to discuss on a future episode, please click on the “Submit a Question” link at the top of our website or you can now call in your questions via our questions hotline @ 325-305-6107 and leave your message after the beep.
