HAD06: Homebrewing 101

You like drinking, but maybe you want something special. Maybe your favorite beer could use a little something special. Maybe honey, or cinnamon, maybe even more hops. If only you could make it yourself, you could teach them how it’s done. Today we’ll talk about how some people put their money where their mouth is and just decide to make their own beer through homebrewing. We’re going to talk about this growing hobby, how you can start doing it, and how to be your own private brewmaster. Warning: this one's a bit longer than the typical episode. So come in, and have a drink!
