This is the inaugural episode of Brewing TV. We get off to a rolling boil with Fulton Brewing Company -- four guys that made their garage hobby a larger-scale business. Jake's brewing an extract / partial boil batch of American Wheat. Then, we're behind-the-scenes at the Upper Mississippi Mash Out, one of the nation's largest homebrew competitions.

In this episode of Brewing TV we've invited John Palmer to discuss his new book, "Water, a Comprehensive Guide for Brewers." He discusses water's role in the brewing process, how its composition can affect different beer styles, its effect on mash pH levels, and much more.
