    Dr. Homebrew | Gluten-Free Pale Ale and Brian's Hazy IPA Pt. 3

    Dr. Homebrew | Gluten-Free Pale Ale and Brian's Hazy IPA Pt. 3

    We don't get to judge many gluten-free or alternative grain beers, so we had to find one for ourselves! On today's show, we start off with a commercial calibration of a great Gluten-Free Pale Ale from Buck Wild Brewing, and then we wrap things up with a Hazy IPA from Brian Cooper!

    Dr. Homebrew | Celebration Ale Vertical and Delirium Noel!

    It's our holiday show, and what better way to celebrate this time with friends and family than with a vertical of Celebration Ale! Three bottles of this amazing beer - 2022, 2021, and 2014. How does this beer hold up? If you ask JP, he'd tell you it's the solution to all the world's problems, regardless of age. Then, we crack open one of the quintessential Christmastime beers - Delirium Noel. This spiced Christmas Ale is everywhere and yet nobody really drinks it. We aim to find out why.

    Dr. Homebrew | Wit Bier and IPA (LIVE at Club D.O.Z.E.)

    Dr. Homebrew | Wit Bier and IPA (LIVE at Club D.O.Z.E.)

    It's Dr. Homebrew on the road! Well, down the street, really. JP shipped the Brians off to the most recent Club D.O.Z.E. meeting, where they partook in a judging panel to help some local homebrewers with some of their beers. We had a Wit and an IPA at this meeting, and there was enough for the whole club to taste along with us. Very fun, so thanks again to D.O.Z.E. for having us!

    Dr. Homebrew | Gose, Grodziskie, and the Women's Craft Fermentation Alliance

    Dr. Homebrew | Gose, Grodziskie, and the Women's Craft Fermentation Alliance

    When is a Gose not a Gose? When it's really a Grodziskie! The Dr. Homebrew team got thrown for a loop on this week's show, as the beer we thought was a Gose turned out to be something way, WAY different. Our homebrewer this week is Michelle Wonder, and along with Melissa McCann, they run the Women's Craft Fermentation Alliance, which is an amazing organization striving to increse the reach of homebrewing and craft beer to women and non-binary folks across the world. The WCFA holds a virtual event every year that is packed with so much great information, just reading about it made our eye bulge out!

    Dr. Homebrew | Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale and A Homebrewed Clone

    Dr. Homebrew | Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale and A Homebrewed Clone

    The greatest of all Brown Ales is represented on the show today - Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale. In years past, this delightful treat of a liquid was in clear bottles, forcing any drinker to basically play the lottery when it came time to drink one - will it be skunky? Now they have shifted to brown bottles several years ago, all the loveliness of a Sam Smith's Nut Brown comes through, and we're happy to be able to dissect it with you. Plus, we have a homebrewed version of a Nut Brown, modeled after Sam Smith's, so we're in for a real treat!

    Dr. Homebrew | Wee Heavy and BJCP Score Sheet Evaluation

    Dr. Homebrew | Wee Heavy and BJCP Score Sheet Evaluation

    We're getting Scottish in the office today! Dave is back with a Wee Heavy, which is always a real treat to dive into. These beers are complex and malty, but can be very tricky to balance just right. Did Dave do those things? Plus, Brian Cooper takes us through the things that make up a good BJCP score sheet.

Informative on a Practical Level

Very interesting to listen to experienced judge’s explain what they’re tasting and what the probable causes of different flavors are. Always fun to hear the recipes as well. It’s like second-hand brewing experience to supplement my own encounters with homebrewing. Keep it up!

Good podcast could be better

I do enjoy the podcast for the most part. The only thing that I really don’t like is one of the host will ramble on for close to half an hour. I need to fast forward, or I tune it out. If they would control him more or edIt out more then half of the rambling would be 5 stars

Great Stuff!

You guys are awesome. I'm a Certified BJCP judge whos trying to improve on my own tasting score to move up in the ranks. And by listening to this show, I gain some wonderful vocabulary and ways to describe what I'm tasting in a glass. Thank-you....
