Episode 11 - The one with the Scottish Tricky.
/

Since my brother from another mother Tricky currently has a crotchfruit and house moving issue to resolve, I’ve recruited a guest cohost for this episode in Andy Lynch of The High Road Brewery channel on YouTube to come on and talk about the electric breweries we’ve built using craftbeerpi.

Tricky hasnt massaged this episode with his special blend of 11 herbs, spices and patchouli oil, but it still sounds good! Join us in the wonderful world of CraftBeerPi and building your own remote controlled electric brewery.

I guess podcasts are like buses sometimes, you wait an age for one and two arrive close together 😉 this episode wraps up the all grain series by looking at packaging options bottles, barrels, kegs and everything in between. We talk about the pros and cons of each and the different options they provide process wise.

Episode 7 - All Grain Process Series - Mashing
/

I slightly meandering journey through the process of mashing, we were both quite well oiled for this one so a few naughty words might have slipped out and the occasional rant but hopefully you will still enjoy it! In this episode we cover different types of mashing process, factors affecting mash performance and what we think is important to consider.

Episode 5 - Water Chemistry
/

Strap in folks this is a long one! This episode we try and break down water chemistry to its key elements. We also review our first beermail from a listener and take another commercial break! P.s we have given up on trying to censor the pods as it basically takes to much time in editing, so please be aware the odd expletive might be present.
