Sorry.

But, Don rocks.

Don, your batch sparging video is the one I went to when progressing to all grain. I hit it up several times while collecting my equipment, a couple of time before my first brew day and a few more during my first few batches.

again - sorry for the off topic but I needed to say my piece.

Don O! Keep up the good work, and keep fighting the good fight.

Dawson and Keeler where are you? Come on out and say hey. Your citizens miss you!

All for brew...

I'll tell you what I am, a homebrewer and beer lover who thinks pot and gay marriage should be legal. So there!

Don, I vote YOU to be the next co-host of BTV. Yes you can!!!!!

I've been following you on youtube for a year and a half, Great stuff!! You also inspired me to switch to No-Sparge brewing, I've have nothing but fantastic results with my take on your technique. I'm also a big supporter of marijuana law reform. As a matter of fact i'm gonna pack my bong and smoke one once i'm done with this post in your honor! hahahaha

I figured I should go read the rest of this thread. It's cool someone noticed fewer BTV shows.

If you get NB's catalogs or emails, you will probably have noticed a change over the last several months. (I do not work for them). It's no coincidence that Keeler and Dawson (and others) have left.

Brewing TV doesn't have the driving motivation behind it (from a company stand point) that it once did. However, as Chip says it will still exist in some form or other. I'm sure he will be bringing in guest hosts.

And however NB continues to change, they still have great products and service. And, the Grand Ave store is only about 1 mile from my house.

That's a little disconcerting to hear. I know from experience it's hard to work on a project if you're getting little to no drive from the organization behind it. It's even harder to do it if you have to fight with the organization to keep it going. I sincerely hope the latter case is not on the horizon for BTV...

I think it is foolish for NB to not support brewing tv. It is a great form of advertisement. I didn't mind that they showed off the gear that they sell. I have shopped at NB because I wanted to support the show. I am also not the only one. It's just like Bobby from NJ and his website. I haven't yet, but I'm planning on buying some of his stuff because he made awesome videos about his product and I believe he knows what he is talking about.

OK so I've been a BTV fan for about a year. Found it on my Roku and watched a back log of shows in 3 weeks the waited on new material. I looked forward to the new episodes and when I heard about the show possibly ending I was pi$$ed. That said I did enjoy the last two episodes ( your man on the cider show Chip couldn't have been more uncomfortable on camera).Some of the guys in my club made 2nd round of NHC and took pictures of the brew crew at the NB table.
Chip will you have another NHC episode? That "club night" song still sticks in my head!
Cheers!!! Kevin
