Please Come Back!
Although I enjoy a good beer every once in a while, I know very little about the various styles and what makes them different from an ingredients and brewing perspective. I am brewing my first batch of mead now and want to try brewing beer as well. I have listened to all of the episodes to date and found this podcast well done and very informative. Thanks and please come back!
Liked the old format
Enjoyed the new show, it was nice to hear two people talk together, but I liked the old style head to head showdowns
