When to use nitro and a question on utilizing two wort chillers — Ep. 149


Hi there, our home brewing friend!

thank you for tuning in to our home brewing podcast

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:

The gang is all back together again! Todd is here, James is here, I am, well, obviously here. If I had enough money to license “Reunited” by Peaches & Herb I would, but just hum it in your head when you first hear us all on together in this episode. 🙂

Become a Patron!

We are not only back as a threesome, we also take YOUR questions on homebrewing. Specifically, we discuss when to use nitro and why you’d want to PLUS we discuss our favorite way to chill our wort when brewing in Texas: using TWO wort chillers. It isn’t as difficult nor as expensive as you might be thinking it is. Also — here are the keg labels we had made that I talked about on today’s show, since I forgot to inject them into the video. My bad!

This episode was a ton of fun to produce so I hope you enjoy episode 149 of our show!

We want to hear from you!
