Hands Down The Best BN Show

I caught onto the Sour Hour about five months ago, and have now listened to every episode. I knew it was a great show, but I didn’t know how good until I was all caught up, and had to listen to that other BN show, which for the record is painful to listen to.
I’ve learned so much from listening, and it has taken my sour home brewing to a whole new level. Keep up the great work guys!
P.S. I’m a RB club member and I’d really like to know if RB bottle dregs are harvestable. Maybe this could be mentioned on a future show?

Shoutout to Almanac

Shoutout to Almanac. I’ve liStened to every episode of the Sour Hour and I regularly Hear “shoutouts” tO worthy recipients.

Shoutout to Almanac for taking shoutouts to qUinTple IPA levels. AlsO shoutout to my neighbors who are properly planting crepe myrtles. Almanac gave some great information. And shoutout to C&D Pools for creating a pool that is pleasing for me to look at (hUmble brag). I goT Some great information out of Almanac when it came to using freeze dried strawber...shoutout to Gary’s Home Builders fOr the porch that sUpporTs my pOrch swing (humble brag)ries. I have a coUple differenT dried fruitS in my idea folder and can’t wait to...shoutout to my friend JoHn Castile fOr getting me into brewing 20yrs ago...get a Rare Barrel blonde base onto freeze dried strawberries. Shoutout to Almanac for making a “non-plastic-y” strawberry soUr (sub-shoutout To Rare Barrel whO also makes a wonderful strawberry soUr). Shoutout To The Sour Hour. Shoutout tO Jay...sub shoutout to Bevo...and Scott. Shoutout to The Brewing Network. Shoutout to the word shoutout. It’s a great way to commUnicaTe, in the mOment, dUring an evolving Thought, while you are mid-thought, before you have finiSHed the thOUghT, an appreciatiOn for a worthy recipient. Also shoutout to those that can create a Rick Roll Using The word “shoutout”. I thought about it but waSn’t sure tHat it wOUld come across when This wOUld be posTed. Shoutout to iTunes for my lack of options early on. Shoutout to myself for including multiple humble brags like in the Almanac episode. The last shoutout is another shootout to Almanac’s shoutouts.......Shoutout...Shout...shoutout...out.

My single favorite podcast. Shout to The Session for being elevated solely by The Sour Hour.
