This week on a brand new Fuhmentaboudit!, hosts Chris Cuzme and Mary Izett are talkin’ home brewing for fall and early winter with the owners of Brooklyn Homebrew, Danielle Cefaro and Benjamin Stutz. Opening the show chatting about Brooklyn Wort, the home brew competition that Danielle and Benjamin are behind, they share that 30 homebrewers are expected to compete in Gowanus on October 12th for $1000 prize money and that ticket holders are in for some great brews and food. Also talking about happenings at Brooklyn Homebrew, after the break the duo shares a peanutbutter and jelly as well as a ‘sweet potato fly’ brew with the hosts. Discussing the complexities and costs of certain ingredients, Danielle and Benjamin go into the detail of their brewing process and what’s on the horizon for Brooklyn Homebrew. Tune in to hear all about great beer and beer events to accompany the fall weather! This program was brought to you by GreatBrewers.com.

“A graf is a fictional beverage created by Stephen King… is essentially a cider that is where you add malt to the cider to add body and a little bit of residual sweetness. I’m going to switch it up a little bit!” [26:40]
