Yeah I agree. Rising prices. No more brew saver shipping. And now no more Dawson and Keeler.

Edit: I still support BTV though. And NB from time to time. Keep it coming Chip!

Something tells me BTV is def taking a hiatus. I've seen too many NorthernbrewerTV posts on youtube instead of brewingtv videos. Oh well I do enjoy their guest lecturer series of videos.

There's been a few recent episodes. They're maybe a week off schedule right now. During the summer they took a break for sure.

Chip! I can't wait any longer for hop madness 2012....

I want to know what you guys made, and the clip of BA eating spent hops at the end of the hop union episode has my attention.


Thanks for BTV and the videos on NB's YouTube page, Keep up the good work.

Chip! What's going on? Is BTV really gone ?
And most important, does anyone got all the episodes 'outside' interwebs (backup)? Just in case, for future hb generations...ya know.

Read the thread, BTV isn't gone......

There are other episodes in the hopper as well. It is true that we had to focus on making DVDs to accompany the Small Batch Starter Kits and new BIAB gear/recipe kits... as well as create the new Northern Brewer Video Library (www.northernbrewer.com/homebrew-video-library, which includes product videos, tips and full-length presentation from NHC and our Minneapolis store classroom. Thanks for your patience and support!

I know things are different w/o Jake and Mike, but teams change quarterbacks all the time and rise to the occasion. It's ALL for Brew, not Two for Brew. I think there are plenty of great stories and brew sessions ahead. Just a different way of thinking about presenting them. I or Northern Brewer can't control Mike and Jake's decisions. I can only look ahead. Hoping to tap the huge pool of talented brewers at Northern Brewer and pick their brains about brewing for the most part. That being said - I do love camera work and editing most, but will never shy away from an opportunity to get my ugly mug on the interwebz when possible.

YouTube, Vimeo and blip/iTunes. Got BTV out there everywhere!

This BTV episode is more about how this particular recipe came to be and what things he considered when putting it together. There is maybe about a minute and a half of overlap.

We all are still friends for sure. No reason not to be.
Chip is still doing episodes with Don Osborn, BA, they even did one with Palmer not long ago. Episodes aren't releasing at the weekly/bi weekly rate that they were when Dawson and Keeler were there, and the show definitely took a hiatus this past summer. There hasn't been a episode since last month's Hop Union episode, but according to Chip and DonO (read the whole thread), they're still making BTVs.

Just relax, ok? I'm their big fan too. I actually read the whole thread, and found that Chip was saying something about Nov. 2nd, as a release of ep 71. And DonO is not doing BTV, he was guest there. The same as Chip and Dawson in his last vid.

Didn't realize that I wasn't relaxed, guess I should pay more attention..... the newest episode was s'posed to come out last week, but like the last few, it seems that they're a bit slow getting it out. Like I said, from the looks of this thread, Chip will continue doing episodes with guests like DonO, BA and others but so far they haven't been releasing on a regular basis.

Which is, obvious pity Really. I dunno what happened (since some time imho). But it seems that for NB, project called BTV is no longer attractive 'channel' for acquiring new customers. And probably that conclusion came from the accounting dept. More and more NB is becoming a corporation focused ONLY on incomes

Despite of Chips hard work, of course - we still love your Blaaam !!
