TILT

Great show. Now I need to go buy a TILT so I can monitor my fermentation and know for sure when it is done.

Denny the online bully

Oe mic, Denny preaches "does what works for you." But on social media and forums, he is nothing less than an online bully constantly belittling questions, opinions and other comments that differ from his know it all perspective.

Informative podcast

I was wrong on my first assessment of them social media tends to make things look one way when it’s not really that way. You will learn a lot from them. I must say their books are really well written
