Nice

I’m a home brewer and this podcast coupled with the basic brewing YouTube videos give me great inspiration for brewing

Reliable Infotainment

Like a venerable in-line 6 cylinder engine James and BBR always deliver. Add Steve into the mix and the fun is doubled! The content and production quality are equally good. My favorite homebrewing pod!

Resource
