Using one faucet for different beverages, upgrading from bucket to conical, & adding things to a kölsch recipe — Ep. 171


How are you doing, homebrewer?

Welcome back to our Homebrew Happy Hour podcast… the podcast where we answer all of your home brewing questions and discuss anything related to craft beer!

On Today’s Show:

We’ve got a fun show for you today! Todd and James were both able to join me and we discussed listener-submitted questions about using the same faucet and beer line to dispense different types of beverages, a listener who is upgrading from his trusty ol’ brew bucket to a shiny new stainless steel conical fermenter, and a question about… you’re not going to believe this… KOLSCH!

Can we (and by “we” I mean “me” and by “me I mean that it’s me, Joshua) go a week without mentioning kölsch? Spoiler: NO, probably not.

By the way, you can pick up James’s delicious Kolsch recipe or ANY of his delicious “True to Style” recipe kits here.

We want to hear from you!
