This episode is mostly about getting ready for harvest, but we do start out with some discussion of labor and demand during this strange year. Also Gunk, Shnibbins, Goop, Coyotes & Frogs.
We tried something different this week and recorded a Zoom call with our friend and chemist Joe. The video version will be on our YouTube channel. In all honesty, the audio isn’t up to our usual standards but it’s still usable. My (Gregg’s) is pretty muddy, but since my contributions to chemistry are usually just […]
It’s another one of THOSE episodes where we shoot the breeze on a half dozen different topics. Drinking out during COVID, glass vs plastic, hoarding Bud Light, hops we’d like to see come back and of course what we’re currently drinking. It’s like being in the room with us, only better since you can leave […]

First we get into Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, your Big 3, along with some of the secondary nutrients. Week 2 will be dedicated to the micronutrients, […]
Dude. DUDE! John here, your friendly neighborhood taproom server. I’m a homebrewer when I’m not slinging suds and have lots of opinions about the beer you’ve been drinking. Learn about me, some other caricatures of taproom servers and how to put the right faces in front of your beer on this week’s episode.
We hope you’re feeling like some hard-core horticulture today. James digs into roots, we continue the campaign against bull shoots, and there might be a Ferris Bueller reference in there somewhere.
