Hello everyone, it may seem there have not been a whole lot of posts lately, and that’s true to a point. But if you have not heard we have started a podcast series. Everything is taking off very well and it seems our numbers and listenership is solid and grows monthly. If you have not checked out Brewnology, please do so. We cover mostly topics related to BJCP judging and general beer evaluation, we cover one style from the new 2015 guidelines every show, and we alternate each episode between a technical brewing topic and a beer flaw. We have 13 episodes out there now and roughly 2 years worth of content planned out. In the near future we plan on doing brewery interviews and other “on location” broadcasts as well. So please join us for this ride. We can be found on iTunes , Stitcher, Spreaker, and on our website (as well as a few other places as well). We are supported by some solid sponsors, namely SS Brew Tech, Grape Grain and Bean Homebrew Supply, Homebrew Talk, and Homebrew Supply. We can be found on Facebook as well, if you are into that or on twitter @Brewnology .
So what sparked this venture? A comment made about my free BJCP prep course that I should start a related podcast. I thought that was a great idea so I thought long and hard about a format. That format being the perspective of a new judge and someone who has been judging a while. I’d fill that veteran judging spot since I have been judging since 2005 and currently am ranked National with the BJCP. I needed to look no further than my own club for the co-host (Dean Wiensch). We already had some great people come in with interest in judging and a good friend of mine just passed the BJCP exam shortly before I thought of this podcast. But why I felt Dean would be the best fit is because he was not only new to judging, but also fairly new to brewing as a whole. I felt this would bring in a great dynamic that would appeal to the both new brewers and judges, as well as people who have been brewing for a long time. So if this sounds interesting to you, give us a listen, drop us some feedback, and best of all……subscribe and/rate us on iTunes or Stitcher. We’d really appreciate it.
