Inside Fermentarium

Weekly videos on home brewing and beer lifestyle

Inside Fermentarium is upgraded too! Every episode in 4K video, plus links and transcripts!

Every week I learn something new about home brewing and beer, and I want to share it with you!

Got an idea for a video? Want to tell me what you love and what I need to improve? I’d love to hear from you.


Almost every homebrew recipe says to add bittering hops for 60 minutes. Is 90 minutes better? Maybe it should be less? That’s what we’re going to investigate next.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
