+1 to all of this.

Free preview on DISH.

Only questionable thing they said was during the episode with the parabolic mirror setup.
After putting wort in primary and adding a vial of 1056, one of the guys said it would take 5 days for it to ferment out.
Seemed like a bit of misinformation but awesome show with a ton of cool ideas.
How much you think one of those parabolic mirrors goes for?

This is a great show. The new one in Boston was really good, making beer on a sailing ship and boiling live lobsters right in the wort was awesome. And then jumping in the sour mash with Jim Cook from Sam Adams like it was a hot tub. Unfortunately, Boston was the season finale, and we will have to wait a year for more episodes.

I was a little surprised in the Portland episode where they made a beer using ZERO hops, because it would have made a lot more sense to use hops in the region where they are grown. Maybe they are saving that kind of beer for a Washington State episode.

I'd really love to see recipes for the beers they brew. I suppose it would be possible to guess and get something close, but there are things they don't mention, like yeast types or even quantities...

Perhaps if anyone does have a crack at reproducing any of the beers (or if James or Martin see this) it would be great to post up your recipes and tasting notes...

I hate to say it but I find this show awful. First off, the hosts are condescending, pretentious, and rude. They talk to people like they aren't even people. Second, doing things like making the most caffeinated beer or the most alcoholic beer are things that I just don't find appealing. Having the most alcoholic beer, IMO, is not a status symbol of master brewing - its a novelty. I've had Sink the Bismarck, and although I can't make it in my kitchen, I wouldn't want to because it tastes like stomach acid. If I want that much booze, I'll drink bourbon. Having the most alcoholic beer on Earth is like serving the most fatty steak on the planet. I don't like the way they portray brewers, the hosts aren't funny, and they make super interesting things not interesting at all.

Also, slurping beer off a tasting spoon?! Give me a break!
