Building an Electric Home Brewery with Short Circuited Brewers

There are many things that one must consider while setting up an electric brewing system at home. Brian Huntley runs one of the best resources for electric brewing information on YouTube. Short Circuited Brewers (Youtube.com/shortcircuitedbrewers) is a channel that helps you pick a system, build a system, troubleshoot a system, etc.

On this episode, we get into a birds-eye view of the pros of going electric.

On this episode, I chat with Karl Kolbe about Pressure Drop Brewing. Karl is the head brewer/CEO and is cranking out some killer West Coast IPAs. The day I was there he was finishing off a batch of Sticky Trees. If you haven't had it yet, you should seek it out.


It was a really laid-back and nice conversation, proving how awesome the local brewers are.

One Eyed Cat Brewing

is a new proposed brewery coming to the North-East suburbs of Buffalo. On this episode, I pulled Sara and Patrick Alexanderson aside up at Santoras Pizza Pub and Grill on Transit Rd to talk about the brewery. They were there along with their partners Bill and Stephanie Beecher to showcase 6 of the beers that they plan to have on tap when they eventually open in the near future.


The event was attended by investors and local beer-lovers and was a great evening of food, beer, and really great conversations.

Beerology & The Brewers Invitational

are two of my favorite events of the year. The local breweries seem to save their special beers and on-offs for these two events in the beginning of the new year.


Beerology is a fundraiser for the Buffalo Museum of Science featuring local and regional craft beer after normal museum hours. My wife, kids, and I love the museum, we're there multiple times a month and even more in the summer, so the first time I went to Beerology it was somewhat surreal to see grown adults, in various levels of inebriation, enjoying the exhibits. It's the kind of event that bring beer-snobs, casual craft-beer lovers, and the Labatt drinkers out in equal force. The local brewers generally bring a seasonal or one-off beer, and the local homebrew clubs set up experiments to test out brewing myths or to explore ingredients in a deeper way.


This year, I'm bringing interviews with the local clubs to describe their experiments.


The second half of the episode is from New York Beer Project for the BNBA Brewers Invitational. This is another of my favorite events where the brewers seem to bring their best and newest creations. On this episode we have a Pączki beer, a Manhattan beer, some killer NEIPAs and some local favorites that have been on hiatus. 

If you've never been to this event, check out the BNBA Events page for details next year, it's worth it.

John Domres is running the greatest one-man show in Buffalo at Buffalo Brewing Company. Open since 2016 and kickstarted with a handful of backers, Buffalo Brewing Company has just completed a renovation to bring their 2-barrel operation to a 5-barrel brewhouse. Nestled in a former horse foundry about the size of a garage on Myrtle Ave, the small brewery has big plans for 2018.

What have I been doing?

Besides the holidays and the general business that 2 kids cause, I've been working on Voice Over work, side-gigs, recorded an audiobook, AND have put time into the podcast, just not in a forward-facing way:

-I've been updating the site to be more secure

-Working on a searchable water database (send any local water reports you have to Scott@WNYBrews.com)

-Recording audio of some BJCP materials for personal study guides.

-Brewing a bunch.

-Working on a Grainfather review.


Two episodes a month until the summer

After summer, I would love to get back to doing an episode a week, but it's hard to do with 2 kids and all the side-gigs I take on.


Two videos a month

Same with the episodes, except the videos take a little more time.


Get the blog moving

This is the big announcement. There are many home brewing blogs on the internet and some of them are great...some, are not. We have the collective knowledge in Buffalo to make a truly great one, but I need people to write or simply contribute

-Recipe's

-Reviews

-Moderation

-Events

-Videos

-Articles


I want to keep it simple, so if you write an article, recipe, etc. for WNY Brews, you can monetize it however you'd like. If you want to run ads on it, all of that revenue goes to you. If you write an article that brings in hundreds of thousands of views, you make any advertising revenue from that page. I keep nothing. It's not about building a media empire, it's about building a resource and making it worth it for all involved.
