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.

Episode 29 - Recipe Development
/

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.

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…. 😜😜

Episode 26 - Oxygen
/

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!

We’ve added a newsletter. Just want to be able to keep you guys abreast of any giveaways, podcast releases and general happenings around the podcast and website. Check out the next episode release for the reason why you really should sign up. #freebies

Episode 25 - Cleaning and Sanitation

Episode 25 is live!

So this isn’t a topic a lot of people cover, but after Tricky giving us a glimpse into his routine, we thought it might be good to cover this one in detail to dispel some myths and reasons why you shouldn’t use certain products without understanding the potential pitfalls.

Enjoy!
