Arctic Alchemy with Chris Bowen – BSHB Podcast Episode 1

by Brad Smith on October 15, 2010 · 5 comments

In the first episode of the BeerSmith Home Brewing podcast, I interview Chris Bowen of Arctic Alchemy as he walks us through a story of how a single bottle of beer on eBay led him to a nearly 4000 mile adventure across Canada to brew beer in the arctic! Chris gives a wide ranging interview about his interest in historical beers, his adventure to the arctic circle to brew beer and film a , and his trip to Burton on Trent.

It would be really useful to have a separate podcast RSS feed from the general blog feed. This is for those of us who use podcast software that isn’t itunes (eg google reader/listen).

I can only download the last 18 podcasts on itunes and my iphone doesnt supports adobe. How can i listen to your older podcasts? I’m really enjoying these!

You can download the rest here actually – just save each of the mp3 files for the earlier episodes and drop them into a playlist in iTunes.
