Brad Makes Beer | It's Alive | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 14 January 2017
  • For episode 3 of "It's Alive," Bon Appetit Test Kitchen Manager, Brad Leone, visits Suarez Family Brewery in Livingston, NY. Brewmaster, Dan Suarez, may realize he's in for a little more than he bargained for when Brad gets his hands (and face) a little dirty. Will you be able to make beer at home after watching? Probably not... but as Dan Suarez said after reviewing this video "This is as technically correct as Brad Leone can be."

    Join Bon Appétit test kitchen manager, Brad Leone, on a wild, roundabout and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, to kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to make fermented and live foods yourself.

                      Seems like Dan hates his life. He probably wanted to get into the wine business and is a disappointment to his family. He's so miserable.

                              Brad should go to Germany and make some beer there, maybe in an old brewery that would be so sick :o

                                If I've learned anything from Breaking Bad, it's that this plant and those big machines are used for much more than just brewing beer....

                                      Brad should make hard cider, complexity added by wild yeasts from the apples etc, it is an awesome process.
