Like buses, when you havent had one for a while, 2 episodes turn up in 3 minutes…

Owen and Chris review another couple of beers and shoot the breeze about life in general. 2 beers this time cos it was a Saturday and we could!

Hope you enjoy the new podcast, we’ll be back with a full lengther when we can get the 4 of us together. Term start time is a bit of a nightmare tbh, so hopefully it should be soon!

FInally got some time to edit and upload these 2. Episode 1 was lost due to the issues we’ve been having with the software we’ve been using, but it looks to be sorted now, so heres a short one to whet your appetite for the next ones coming your way.

Chris and Owen review a commercial beer each, it was late on a thursday so just a quick one, it was a school night after all, hopefully this should get you in the mood for the next one coming in about 20 mine time.

Enjoy!

Apologies

Guys, firstly an apology, we’ve not been updating stuff. We have had some issues with recording software, but I’m also having some issues with my software and logons for the website to be able to upload things.

I think I’ve found the issue and I think its been resolved, but we still havent had the time to edit the latest episode of the podcast and get the audio up and online. I should be able to do this on friday evening with a little luck.

Please accept our apologies and we’re trying to get better, trying to find the time to be able to sort all these things with schools having gone back and external pressures on our time.

We’ll be back. Promise.

Owen went on holiday for this one, so we needed someone with as sexy a voice, and as good a knowledge of beer, so we subbed in Chris Harrison-Hawkes AKA Harrybrew for a pod. This one should give you an insight into the world of commercial and homebrew recipe development, and how you can hone a recipe in to give you what you want.

The start of The Hop Addition’s merch line!

So we’re starting small, I have a limited run of Fridge magnets which are available. I’ll be getting some other stuff done soon, but in the interests of checking the waters, I decided fridge magnets would stick to kegerators and keezer alike so I went with them.

If you want a fridge magnet, then you can send a PayPal payment to us Pm me for the address, trying to avoid the spam bots here… Friends and family or please cover the fees. The cost of them is £1.80 and that includes 2nd class postage to the UK. If you’re abroad and would like one, then PM me first and I’ll check the postage rates to wherever you are in the world.

They are rather cool, and the numbers are limited in the first instance, and prices may go up due to Brexit when I do a reorder. Please bear that in mind. Check back for more merch as and when I get it all sorted and on stream.

Love yas, even the shandy drinking southerners…. 😜😜

This episode we talk about the perils of Oxygen, what it can do to your beer and when its good, and when its not. The audio for this one got a little garbled towards the end so the last 20 minutes or so is missing. Had to do a little diatribe to explain where we went. The salient points are all in there.

Special thanks on this episode to Boel Technologies and to Martina in particular for hooking us up with an iTap with crown cap to give away! Sign up for the newsletter to be entered into the draw which we will do live during episode 28!
