Chop & Brew is a webshow about life’s great food and fermentations. A large focus is on homebrewing of all sorts – extract, partial mash, BIAB, and all-grain; ales, lagers, and experimental brews. We hope to feature and highlight other home fermentations such as wine, mead, sake and kombucha. Some videos and blogs also discuss cooking, barbecuing, grilling, roasting, smoking, curing, freezing — and the spaces wherein food and fermentation meet.

Producer Chip Walton, former videographer/editor/producer of Brewing TV and Northern Brewer video projects, presents this show alongside amateur and professional foodies and homebrewers. Full-length Episodes are complemented with short-form video Lagniappes on all topics of fermentation and food.

    Hi Chip
    I missed very much brewing tv, happy to see you again and your video and your recipes!
    Chop for chop and brew for brew!

    HB from Italy

  2. Lorenzo Farfarelli

    Hi Chip, it is an honour for me!
    Here in Italy homebrewing scene it’s growing faster and strong.
    Nothing like your country but now associations of hb are growing and it is easy now to find HB competition to share knowledge and ideas.
    At the same time professional breweries pop up everywere riding the great wave of craft beer. Most of them make bad beer but some (birra del borgo, baladin, opperbacco, toccalmatto ecc.ecc.) are now creating great beers. We haven’t got your tradition about brewing, but we can use our knowledge of wine and good food to improve our creation. We are all togheter tryning to find an Italian way to make beer.
    Here in Rome, my city, now you can find great pubs where to drink craft beer, and it is a joy for beers lovers.
    Thank you for your time looking for new videos and ideas (in september I’m gonna try you bitter man!) and……sorry for my english


  3. Chip,

    I was thinking… My wife makes real good bread and I brew beer. Have you ever heard of someone taking their used malt grains and putting them in bread. I think why not do it. What goes good with beer but Beer Bread. Think about a bread made with roasted and chocolate malts. Yumm.

    I’m so glad I found you all after BrewTV started to suck.

    Thanks Chip, Keep up the great work.

    • People do it, but I never have. Search the homebrewtalk and other forums like reddit, people have posted recipes and experiences there. Hopefully we will be able to make some soon!

      Peter Reinhart. Amazing author on the subject of bread. He has recipes on using spent grain in bread. I’ve never tried them but I trust they are great.

    Always present when you speak about food. Here in Italy lots of H.B. makes breads with used malt grains, We use to do also pizza with the fermentation yeast, that means a pizza with a good and strong aroma of hop, if you make that pizza plain, it is perfect to open it and put inside good ham. Speeking about beer ingredients used in kitchen, We have traditional recipes that use hops to make rice, and also we use turnip tops hops to make omelette….

    I’ve watched all of the Brewing TV shows several times on Roku. My present computer is too old (2005 mac mini) .. and doesn’t do “flash” very well .. so I haven’t watched your Chop & Brew videos. Is there any way you can get the Chop & Brew videos on Roku .. so I can keep my computer out of the loop .. and still watch the videos?

    • Shamefully, I am not sure how to get the episodes on Roku. I believe Brewing TV was on Roku via Blip which we used to post to iTunes. I’m hoping to get this up and running after the new year. Sorry for the inconvenience.
