    I just realized why there are no more Brewing TV episodes. I am glad I stumbled across your new venture in the comments of a NB post on Facebook.

  2. Robert Vasecka

    Chip…..Wow I just stumbled across you on the web. I really miss the old Brewing TV. You guys were awesome. Thanks for keeping your mad video skills alive and sharing with the rest of us homebrewers.

    Hey Chip! Awesome to see you’ve taken the step out on your own since the fall of BTV, i really enjoyed those episodes, and have followed everyones personal pages/videos etc to keep the watching and learning up!

    Great to see the passion for food a brewing together in one place! Love it!

    Any chance you can add the batch size for the Double IPA recipes. I would guess 5 gallon, but, it is not specified. Thanks.

    Now, this may be a subject that would be helpful to newer brewers like myself. What about an episode dedicated to “rookie mistakes”. As a newer brewer, I’ve made mistakes that could’ve been avoided with a decent instructional. For example: fermenting temps and how they effect the outcome, oxidation, water profiles and such.

    This could be handled by the new boring “BrewTv”, but I more enjoy watching you and your fellas with your interpretations and comedy. But as always, I’ll be looking forward to new episodes! Thanks!

    • This is actually in the works. Ted W. from past episodes had the same idea. I think we’ll approach it as a sort of roundtable discussion instead of trying to stage all the scenarios. Be on the lookout for it!

    Great beer AND great food in one place? What more could anyone ask for? You’re a rockstar Chip! Keep up the fantastic work!

    Any chance a kombucha episode might make an appearance in the future? I’ve been thinking about trying my hand at it, but I’m not really sure where to start. Any thoughts/advice?


    • I have made kombucha in the past and have some friends that do it much more regularly. I think it’s on the short list for this spring hopefully! Basically make a simple sweet tea with equal parts honey and sugar and a nice black tea. Then add the SCOBY. I’ll see if I can find a recipe for you in lieu of an actual episode.

    Wow, Just finished watching all the BrewTV videos and thought I was caught up, Surprise. I was pissed. Well I now feel better. AND is you want to come to Western Montana and see Craft Brews here ??? We have fly fishing and I have a boat.

    Hello,’I’m a big fan of the show.

    I’m writing because I’m curious if and when you’ll be releasing the episode on the saison you brewed at like 95 degrees.

    I’m curious because I brewed a few hot saisons and wanted to see others experience. Thanks a bunch!

    • I totally plan on doing the episode. I brewed it last summer. Shamefully, I have had to prioritize other footage first, but I hope to have it release in the next two or three episodes! Thanks for asking. Good memory!

    Hey, Chip,
    I’ve been a big fan of yours since your debut with NB. I must say,” You, Mike Dawson, and Jake Keeler are very inspirational figures for me, I’ve learned to take my brewing to a different level just by watching your video’s.” It made my brewing a big difference.
    Warm regards from Virginia,
    Don Martin

  12. Howdy excellent website! Does running a blog such as
    this take a large amount of work? I’ve very little knowledge of coding however I had been hoping
    to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for
    new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask.
    Appreciate it!
