Homebrew Wednesday 36: SJ Porr Challenge 2014 Recap

Episode Summary:

Congrats to the top 4 winners of the US finals of the 2014 SJ Porr Challenge! In this week’s Homebrew Wednesday I recap my experiences with the challenge (I placed 6th in the US finals) and then share some updates on what’s coming up in terms of my brewing and kegging adventures. Including showing you some footage of me kegging my pilsner so that I can lager it in my keezer for 4-5 weeks.

Episode Breakdown:

  • My experiences with the SJ Porr Challenge 2014: Where I placed, how I’m going to tweak my challenge beer (my black rye IPA) next time I brew it, and a quick tasting of of the beer. In this episode I reference the July/August issue of Zymurgy magazine. As such, if you are an AHA member and or have access that issue, the recipe I referenced is on page 29.
  • Recent purchases: Small bungs for counter pressure filling bottles and growlers from my kegs, the Craft Beer Cookbook, and the grains for a 3 gallon batch of a Farmhouse Pale Ale that will be my next brew.
  • Kegging My Pilsner: Racking it to a keg, sealing it with CO2, and bottling the beer that didn’t fit into the keg.


In my next post: Liquid Sustenance (Farmhouse Pale Ale) brew day footage & more.
