Ok i've downloaded a bunch of podcasts and i was pretty dissapointed by some of them. Some were just back and forth banter and poorly produced. I got some information but i was wondering what the best podcasts out there for moderate to advanced brewers. Thanks for the help.

It's a matter of perspective, a lot of people love the brewing network and their inane personally, I'm to old for it...The shows on there, despite having Jamil on it, drive me nuts...But it's different strokes for different brewers I guess.

My two favorites are


ANd the oldest Brewing podcast (out of Australia, it started as radio over a decade ago, and the hosts have 60 years of brewing combined..) Craftbrewer Radio

Basic Brewing is a tight, single topic show...very slickly done (the host is a proffessional voice announcer with his own production company)

The Austrailian one is Chatty, and they cover a lot of stuff in a show, BUT they talk about and do some pretty amazing techniques. AND after spening Christmas break listenning to everything of theirs in all their archives (some are on a different website and go back to the radio show days) It turns out that when they first went online some guy in America named John Palmer used to listen all the time and email asking them questions....a few years later they realize that the John Palmer learning from them, was THEE John Palmer of How to Brew fame...
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

Revvy's one of the cool reverends. He has a Harley and a t-shirt that says on the back "If you can read this, the bitch was Raptured. - Madman

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

I started out with the Basic Brewing with James Spencer. The podcasts are really good with lots of information.

However, the last few months I've been listening to The Brewing Network podcasts. There are a few different podcasts. The Sunday Session is usually pretty informative if they are concentrating on specific topics, less so if they are just interviewing a brewery, but still good. Jamil and Palmer have Brew Strong, which just started recently and they have a few shows that are pretty in depth. There is also the Jamil show which covers brewing styles and has started doing clones of commercial beers.

My brewing has improved immensely since I started listening to podcasts.

+1 for Basic Brewing.

I give them tons of credit for having gone through so many topics, and still keeping it informative and easy to understand new things.
