In this episode, Stubby had just returned from a trip to Germany where he had a few beer related adventures with Fritz Rahr of Rahr and Sons Brewing, including a trip to the Weyerman anniversary party, Rahr winning a bronze medal at the Euro Beer Star Awards for their Oktoberfest bronze medal, plenty of Krombacher pils, and of course, a few potato pancakes. We also continue discussing Big Beer buyouts in the craft beer industry and now the homebrew industry. 

Plus, in the second half we try a series of weizenbocks where we split out a single 5 gallon Brewing Classic Styles recipe with Mangrove Jack Bavarian Wheat, Lallemande MunichWyeast 3068 Weihenstephan WeizenWyeast 3056 Bavarian Wheat, and Safbrew WB-06. Which we also compare against some German examples. 

We had a few technical issues just before the break as we were learning to combine the recording of the podcast with Facebook Live. You'll know when you hear it. :) But be sure to check out the Texas Brewing Inc. Facebook page on most Thursdays around 8 PM-ish CST for the live version of the show.
