Brewing TV - Episode 35: High Voltage 1800



Original Postdate: April 22, 2011

Guest host Kent "Sixpack" Olsen brews a batch of Town Hall 1800 English IPA (he later dubbed his version "Dirty Deeds English IPA"). Sixpack won the Brewing TV brew session and beer kit at an auction benefit for Emma German earlier this year. The brew session takes place on his birthday surrounded by friends from his Jack of All Brews homebrew club and plenty of great beer. Join us for one hop-tastic brew day filled with interesting tips, a tour of Sixpack's basement bar and some High Voltage fun.

    They even kill the girls when they first open their eyes in the world. They killed them because they give importance to the man world. They think that more girls more issues will happen. In many villages it used to happen.

    They are out of the concepts that the color, age, and religion matters no they start learning that everybody is important and popular because of their skills. The man is popular because of the work he presents.

This episode is worth a watch, especially if you're an extract brewer. I batch sparge as well, and while this video won't teach you everything you need to know about batch sparging, it'll give you a pretty good idea about how easy it is. So as far as spreading Denny Conn's gospel of batch sparging, I approve of this vid.

Honestly, to all the guys posting the negative comments, WEAK! You guys are missing the whole point of this hobby. Its all about enjoying a great creative hobby with an end product that produces, what is most likely the counterpart for our first favorite hobby. Up until now, I've enjoyed ALWAYS seeing people's positive and constructive posts, which is a far cry from the rest of the comment sections on every other interweb site and now you've ruined that record run! Thanks!

Sixpack, I love the setup and process you've got going on. You definitely were a super entertaining. Looking forward to the encore!

No need for the elitism here, we all learn and improve. Seriously those are some minor gripes to post. Good episode.

Being new to brewing I enjoyed seeing the process being done, but this guy drove me up a wall! I almost stopped watching it everytime he came into frame!

hahaha... what a surprise... someone is posting negative home brew-snobbery on an anonymous web-based commentary forum.

nice episode. nice brew day... i batch sparge in a cooler, as well. well, now i stove-top BIAB because of limited space... but still, it was nice to see normal brew session with a normal guy. i;m never going to brew with the guys on the BN, so i come here to watch someone else do it. i have, however, brewed in my driveway before, so i can relate to that.

chooch. lol... what a joke of a human. only a chooch calls someone else a chooch.

I couldn't finish this episode. I love BTV, but this was boring! Plus this guy's process is driving me nuts. Sure I'm a bit of a perfectionist with my own process, but this guy didn't care about his at all. I suggest to any new all-grain brewers watching this episode to not copy any of this guy's process. None of it will lend toward consistency in you're batches and will cause other homebrewers who know what they are doing to ask, "Where the hell did you come up with that?"

Thanks, everyone, for all of the comments on this episode. Kent was a very good sport about brewing on-camera for a critical audience; he won the guest-host gig via a charity beer tasting/auction (put on by his homebrew club) for a little girl with cancer, and for that alone I commend his approach to Homebrewing (capitals mine) ... which, I think if you're watching our show in the first place you're probably inclined to agree, is about more than just how you sparge or whether you use pellets or whole cone or extract vs. AG or kegs or bottles. In my mind I often equate homebrewing with things like surfing, fly fishing, martial arts, etc. - a craft with a skill set that has to be acquired through practice, which itself becomes more than simply riding a plank of wood, standing in a river waving a stick, and kicking people in the head, respectively ... "holistic" is a word Keeler and I toss around a fair bit. I think you've become a great homebrewer when it positively informs how you live your life and participate in our awesome nerdy little community, not when you win a gold medal or get 95% mash efficiency (admirable though those things are). /soapbox. Cheers.
