    We're talking homebrewed Kolsch and Czech Premium Lager!

    We're buzzing in the Dr. Homebrew studio today - we get to drink two great styles of homebrew that are rarely seen together! It's the amazing combo of Kolsch and Czech Premium Lager - both great style and both very hard to do. Plus, we hear about Brian Schar's recent trip to Dubai. If that's not worth the price you paid for this show ...

On today's match made in heaven, frequent guest Colin is back, this time he sent in a rebrewed Bitter, using feedback he received on the show.

    We mix things up today, with a little celebration

    We mix things up today, with a little celebration

    8 years ago, we started this show in the hopes that we could bring some of the mystery behind beer judging to you. While we aren't sure that has happened, we've been able to help homebrewers across the world improve their beers and, hopefully, their vocabulary on just what in the hell is going on in their fermentations. So allow us a hot second to reflect, please. Oh, also we judge a Flanders Red ale. Because what's a judging show without some (beer) judging?

    Two Porters, two very different attempts!

    Two Porters, two very different attempts!

    A classic American Porter - it's hard to get more traditional than that, and it's rare that we get one on the show. Our second beer is an English Porter, sort of in name only, and it's brewed with flavored coffee. What am I talking about? Tune in and find out!

    2IPA and a (checks notes) Braggot ... Saison?

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!

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....

The whole network has given up

It's clear this whole network has given up. There's large gaps between releases, and then when there are releases it a batch of mutliple episodes at once. Editing is the biggest victim. Commerial breaks are dead silence. Commericals are annoying enough, dead air is just laziness.
