A Homebrew Podcast – Exit 12 Brewery, which is not a brewery (not one where you can go buy beer, anyway) joins the show. Nick and Brandon record their side of the episode in a house kept at 60 degrees – they are super committed to keeping those ales fermenting on the cool side. The chilly temperatures do cause some disputes about the nature of their friendship.

We discuss the delicious Founders Breakfast Stouts – Canadian Breakfast Stout for Aaron and Jason and Kentucky Breakfast Stout for Brandon and Nick.

Exit 12 shares their weirdest creation, a Thanksgiving Ale – Brown Ale with Rosemary, Nutmeg, Thyme – they suggest it is ‘drinkable’ It didn’t work nearly as well as the Cranberry Pale Ale. Their second go around featured 1/2 the cranberries in secondary instead of primary and it was a holiday favorite.

New England IPA’s are the go to beer, and they have even done some NE IPA techniques with SMaSH beers. We discuss the beginnings of the NE IPA. Alchemist, Lawson’s, Hill Farmstead, Trillium, and Treehouse. This trendy discussion of NE IPA resolves in some stories about Edward Scissorhands with King Cobra.

We discuss electric vs. propane brewing. The coolers with propane seem to give better efficiency than the Robobrew, but the coolers aren’t the best outdoors in the New England winters. Jason and I discuss our joint finances in advance of acquiring a cooler system.

Brewtubing network – most folks chronicle their brew days in a 20-25 minute video. Homebrew reviews.
Clement’s Homebrew was the channel that got them into the Brewtubing.

The community aspect of homebrewing, especially in giving free beer to friends and family has allowed Exit 12 Brewery to extend the craft beer interest to their friends and family who have traditionally been macro only drinkers.

We learn that you can, if you know the right stuff, find Zombie Dust in Germany.

Jason takes us on a journey to Athens and then Hades as we follow Thesius in the off-the-wall question.

We then discuss serving styles in response to listener Brian’s question and it gets a little dicey when we discuss counter pressure bottle fillers.
