In this episode, we took some listener requests and decided to go into a new segment we’ll call Back to Basics where we discuss some of the basics of homebrewing. Tonight, we start with extract brewing tips and will branch out to other basics in future episodes. After that, we discussed another set of hop varieties, including the versatile Columbus and the new Denali for the American hop, the widely used Fuggle and Challenger for the English hop, and also the very popular Magnum and Tettnang for the noble varieties. 

Extract brewing is always a great way to brew at home, but many brewers still have issues getting the most from their brews with liquid or dried malt extract. Well, our Back to Basics look at extract brewing is about helping you get past some of the obstacles that you might encounter along the way. 

Afterward, we jump into another series of hops to find out a little more about each varietal. Our goal again is to help you with choosing the best ingredient for your recipe or better yet, to branch out and try something new.
