Beer science, it's good and good for you!

Homebrew Jockeys expose some of the homebrewing advice we often hear, and just assume must be true.....until now. These include the necessity of racking, hot side aeration, use of aluminum pots, and more. Plus, taking dark grains out of your mash (is it worth your effort?). Fire up this episode and listen to the homebrew gospel!
