In the latest episode of Alcohol by Volume, Josh and Dennis discuss the Breckenridge Brewery buyout and some basic equipment all homebrewers should have. We also discuss a red ale that Dennis made for his wedding and Wynkoop’s black lager. If you’ve recently purchases beer starter kits and haven’t started them, listen to this episode for some great advice from Dennis! The biggest takeaway from this episode it to be patient and start small with your brewing endeavors as you learn the craft. You’ll definitely be glad you did later down the road. Thanks for listening to Alcohol by Volume Episode 8.

Our hosts, Josh and Dennis, are avid homebrewers who wanted to take their interests to the podcast format. Dennis has been brewing for a few years already. Josh is really just getting started. Together, they make a great team: a rookie and a veteran with questions and answers that will have you listening each week.

As we move forward with the podcast, we’ll step into recipes, interviews, Q&A from our listeners, etc. We want your feedback. Sure, we’re doing this show because we love it, but we’re also doing it for you. If we mess up, we expect you to tell us. If you want us to answer a question, ask it. Feel free to leave a comment, and we’ll get back to you.
