Dr. Homebrew | Episode #154: Kentucky Common and Bell's Two Hearted Clone

9/23/2019
More
Keeping with the theme of random beer styles, we judge a Kentucky Common on the show today - pretty cool! Then keeping with yet another theme, we judge a homebrewed version of Bell's famous Two Hearted Ale. The best part is we had a commercial version next to it in order to truly get a proper comparison.

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #153 | English Barleywine & American Pale Ale

9/23/2019
More
Normally when we hear "Barleywine" we think of big, chewy beers with a large hop charge and an even larger alcohol presence. However, the English version of the Barleywine is not that at all, and one that we don't see all too often, but are pleased to judge today, Then, an American Pale Ale makes an appearance on the judging table.

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #152: Dark Mild and Saison Dupont

8/27/2019
More
We had traveling Mike on the show to discuss his Dark Mild homebrew that he sent in. Of course Jason was very excited for this one. Then it was Commercial Calibration time! Brian Cooper really wanted to run through a Saison, and there are no better commercial examples of that style than Saison Dupont. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #151: Irish Extra Stout and Cream Ale

8/22/2019
More
Even though the style of "Irish Extra Stout" doesn't ring any bells, we had one to judge tonight. More Sheaf Stout than Guinness, it's an interesting style that we don't see much of. We also had another Cream Ale lined up for us, something we always welcome! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In this episode of Dr. Homebrew, we are joined by George Bailey if Sensafe, makers of the iDip Water Testing Kit for brewers.

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #149: Live From HomebrewCon 2019

7/30/2019
More
In this special episode of Dr. Homebrew, we record live from HomebrewCon in Providence, RI, and are joined by the legendary John Mallett from Bell's Brewery. John talks to us about the world famous Two Hearted Ale, and helps to announce a new collaboration project between Bell's General Store and Dr. Homebrew, where we enlist fans of the show to brew Bell's clone kits and have them evaluated on the shows. We are also joined by Jeff, from the Mad Zymurgists Homebrew Club, who shared with us...

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #148: American Pale Ale and Kolsch

6/19/2019
More
On today's Dr. Homebrew, we are sent in two beers we love very much: American Pale Ale and Kolsch. Well, the Pale Ale is more along the lines of a session IPA, but we forgave Andy for that transgression, and this beer is currently in the second round of the National Homebrew Competition for 2019, so listen up and cheer Andy on this year!

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #147: Bell's Two Hearted clone and Leffe Blonde clone

6/19/2019
More
It's been awhile since we've had a commercial beer to taste alongside it's clone, but that's exactly what we have here today with an attempt at Bell's Two Hearted IPA. Homebrewer Branden was kind enough to send us a few cans of this elusive beer (at least on the West Coast) for us to judge right next to his clone attempt. Then we had a Leffe Blonde clone from Jason. How did they do? Find out! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #146: California Common and Doppelbock

5/30/2019
More
Despite the commercial label in the photo, there's a homebrew in that reused Moose Drool bottle - we swear! On today's show, we had a California Common sent to us, and a Doppelbock that was in-studio. See how these beers did, and how they can improve, on Dr. Homebrew! Learn more about your ad choices.

Dr. Homebrew | Episode #145: Pilsner and American Pale Ale

5/30/2019
More
Tonight on Dr. Homebrew, we have a clone of the world-famous Pivo Pils from Firestone-Walker, and a classic American Pale Ale. Branden, who sent in the Pivo clone, was kind enough to send us two versions, actually - one was dry hopped and one was standard, so we had a good time comparing the two.

It's commercial calibration time again! Today on the show we have not one, but TWO different versions of Guinness Stout! That's right, one is the draught version in the can, and the other is from the bottle, sans widget. But first, we have a Cream Ale from Scott. Learn more about your ad choices.

Ginger Hibiscus Saison and a Bourbon Maple Porter are on the table tonight, and we're fairly certain they are both truly unique beers to Dr. Homebrew! However, to do that we'd have to keep track of our past submissions and we have too much golf to play. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Every day you learn something new. Today, Jason learned there is no "T" in "Schwarzbier", and he's been saying it all wrong this entire time. But we are fairly certain that Chris (who brewed the thing) knew that! We also had Josh on with his Chocolate Rum Milk Stout, which was a very excellent beer. Learn more about your ad choices.

Talk about polar opposite beers ... an American Pale Ale and a Christmas Cookie Stout With Coconut. Not typically two beers you'd find on the judging table together, but we are pros, so we carry on! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

A French Saison and an English Brown Ale with Chai Spiced - two things we rarely get. Chris's French Saison was hit with a treatment of Clarity-Ferm after fermentation to remove most of the gluten - something we hadn't seen before with such a wheat-based recipe. Avery's English Brown Ale made with Chai Tea spices hit us next, and tasted more like an oatmeal raisin cookie than anything. Good Stuff! Learn more about your ad choices.

German Hefeweizen and Imperial Stout are on the docket today! Collin's Imperial Stout was left sitting on JP's counter for a year - which is definitely something new for this show. Ian's Hefe was treated normally by JP, so nobody can blame him for anything - which is NOT normal. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Today on Dr. Homebrew, we chat with Walter once again - this time with his take on the Sierra Nevada beer "Resilience IPA". Then a call all the way to Sweden, lagers, and what the homebrewing scene is like over there. It's a great show, so sit back and relax! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Awhile back we were introduced to a beer that Brian has been working on forever, the aptly-named "Kick Your Own Ass" ale. Back then, Keith and Jason judged it and gave Brian some feedback on how to make it a bit more approachable, while still maintaining the spirit of the thing. Well, Brian is back with a brand new version, brewed by the folks at PicoBrew for inclusion into one of their kits! Brian Schar and JP run through this beer again, but first we dive into a homebrewed Foreign Extra...

We have seen some weird beers come through, but possibly none as weird as tonight's show. Sure, it all starts out innocently enough with a German Pils sent in by Scott, but then things get weird. Gabe is back with another coffee beer, but this time ... it's sour. Yes, a sour coffee beer. Find out if it worked! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

With the recent BJCP expansion, we suddenly have several new beer styles to play with! It's a good thing we have two Master BJCP judges in the studio to help our learning along, because our friend Vaughan sent over something called a "Catharina Sour" - something we've never had the pleasure of trying before! Then, we hit up a Mint Chocolate Stout from Logan. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
