Basic Brewing Video is all about brewing beer (and mead) and making it better. We also cook up some great food to go along with our tasty brews.

James, Andy and Brian take a look around Great Divide Brewing in Denver, Colorado.
James and Steve taste a peachy mead and a porter made with vanilla beans. Also, Steve insults a South American navy.
Adding flavors to already tasty brews

Five yeasts for five meads
It begins again! We employ five different yeasts to see how they ferment and flavor five small mead batches.

Three ways to smoky homebrew
We talk about three ways to get a smoky flavor into your homebrews, and Steve whips up a smoked salmon pasta with a mouth-watering appetizer.
Good beer in cans? No. GREAT beer in cans!
Dale Katechis, the "Dale" behind Dale's Pale Ale and other tasty brews, gives us a tour around Oskar Blues, the first American microbrewery to put beer in cans.
We check in one last time with the 2006 Mead Experiment and talk a bit about small batches.
