Default Favorite Brewing Podcast?

So, I have really been getting into the brewing podcasts especially

Basic Brewing Radio/Video and The Brewing Network I have been listening when I am in the car for like 3 months now catching up on old episodes.

1. Just want to see who people thought was a better Podcast?

2. If there are any other brewing podcasts that compete with these?

Personally, for brewing knowledge I go with Basic Brewing, I know I am going to get some good information out of each Podcast whereas the Brewing Network is more entertaining and you get some good tidbits of brew knowledge.


Primary: JAOM, Edwort's Applewine, Irish Red, Koed Cream Ale, Cell Phone Cider (Blackberry & Apple)
Secondary: Raise Helles Bock
Drinking: Funer Ale

Koed Brewing Co.

I have enjoyed several of the podcasts from the beersmith guy.

Single Vessel BIAB is all I need....Until we figure out the no vessel technique.

I listen to Basic Brewing Radio, the Beersmith podcast and BrewStrong pretty consistently. The other brewing network shows can have some good info, but they also have a tendency do devolve into a bunch of drunk dudes being obnoxious. BBR is probably my favorite, because of the variety of topics and the fact that James Spencer is the only beer podcaster that sounds like he's had some education in broadcasting.
Check out my blog: Small Batch Brewing, and/or follow me on twitter @SmallBatchBrew

And watch my show! www.NewBrewThursday.com

If you're into cooking, the Home Brewed Chef, on the Brewing Network, is pretty solid. More of a food focus, but definitely brings in beer as well. It's fun to listen about ways to incorporate beer and beer ingredients into meals.

BBR is the bomb. I've been listening to James, Steve, Andy and the gang on my daily commute every week day since September, and I'm just now to the 2009 shows. I have learned an unbelievable amount from them, and also use their Brewer's Logbook, which is also awesome.

I got alot of good info from Brew Strong, the shows with Dr. Charles Bamforth are great, and the Sunday Session too, they get some good guests. It's great when they have a brewer from a brewery you like talking you through the process they use. Lots of good clone recipes too.

The Jamal Show is great. I really enjoy Final Gravity though. Always fun and educational.
