Brewing TV: Episode 16 - Brewing with the Keelers/"Beer O' Clock" radio show


Mobile friendly version!

Original postdate: August 27, 2010

- Jake & Lucretia Keeler brewing a Chocolate Milk Stout
- "Beer O'Clock" radio show with host The Beer Goddess

This one's for the ladies! We begin in the Keeler kitchen, where Jake is joined by his wife - Lucretia - in the brewing of a Chocolate Milk Stout. How's the old saying go? "Give a woman a beer, please her for a day. Teach her to brew, please her for a lifetime..." Right?  Then, BTV on the Radio. We visit Lisa Morrison aka The Beer Goddess during an episode of her craft beer radio show "Beer O'Clock" to get her input on women in craft beer and homebrewing.

Hey guys! Just wanted to say thanks for doing an episode like this. It's great to see other women excited about good beer and the craft beer movement. And hey, with any luck, I'll be one of those female brewers that Lisa was talking about! Keep up the good work. All for brew and brew for all.

fun episode! had me laughing out loud at several points.

any way to get some of those BNA5 taster glasses?

Another great video! My girlfriend also loves the beers listed. There is one problem, we've been vegan for a couple years now and haven't been able to enjoy them. Is there a substitute for lactose? Another desert beer style that work in substitution? I would love to get my girlfriend interested brewing.

It's nice to see a family brewday. I enjoy mine. We just picked our hops. Brew On!

Awesome show. Please don't ever stop. I'll give ya a million dollars to keep it going.

This was a great episode, awesome work!

Todd - look into oatmeal stouts, they're very similar to milk/sweet stouts. Also use of caramel malts can leave residual sweetness.

Where has the real Michael Dawson been?

Another great episode, can't wait till the next.

There was lots of innuendos this episode!

Great to see the lady taking a slight interest...reminds me of my girlfriend.

Milwaukee is not only a macro brewing place. We got many awesome microbrewer's here. I.E. Lakefront, Milwaukee ale house. Milwaukee still kicks ass a Micro scene and home brewing scene.

Thanks for digging on this episode everyone. I know Lucretia had a good time....she makes Dawson and I look so tame and ordinary. And, to be clear Juno was stating that Milwaukee has been KNOWN as a Macro town...he was making the point that it doesn't have as many micro-breweries as Portland or Ashland currently(which are the two cities competing year after year for the title of Beertown), but it never the less is the ORIGINAL Beertown USA. He's a native of MKE, so he was jokingly "allowing" Portland/Ashland to assume the title. But in Brewing TV's eyes, Milwaukee will always be Beertown USA!

Jeez.... sixteen episodes! Congrats, guys! It's been wonderful, keep it up!

And, absolutely agree on getting the lady involved in brewing.... it makes the hobby that much more enjoyable, and they're usually open to the beer-related expenditures that may need to come out of the budget ;)

Great strategy on getting the wifey involved, as well, Jake! I brewed a cherry wheat for my girlfriend when I started brewing, at her request... she was hooked when she tasted it, and accepted my obsession. Every third, or so, batch was a recipe I let her select or made something she earlier requested... it kept her hooked. And when I start brewing again, I hope to get her involved in the actual brewing process, as well... or at least let her keep picking recipes for me to do.

Three cheers forwives in the brew house!! Mrs. Venzetti is a constant help and gives tons of moral support through some of the darkest brewing hours. I just wish she would leave some IPA for me:-(

16 episodes and this is the first poop joke?

August 31, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterscott

Ha! Scott, you'd think between Dawson and I something would have been said...but alas, it took the sensibilities of a lady to produce the high level of humor associated with feces. (to be fair, I think Dawson made a quasi-poop joke in the blooper portion of episode #1)

I really enjoy the episodes and look forward to each new show. One thing I really appreciate is the fact you two DONT brew with some gloriously shiny un-affordable set up with all the gadgets and gizmos . I think for someone considering brewing as a hobby, and watching an episode to see what it's all about would find your simple approach completely do-able. Thanks for making your show fun to watch, looking forward to Fri. Kurt

seems to be a lot of extract brewing here, why don't you guys show us some ability and cook up an all-grain episode?

September 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBB

@BB - we've actually had four (soon to be five) episodes with AG brew sessions - #2, 3, 9, 10, and 17 - and three with extract brew sessions. Not that I'm counting. : )

Hey guys,

Love your show. Keep up the great work. Quick question. There used to be a link for BTV on the NB main page. I did not see it there. Am i blind?
