Joe Postma is one of the most knowledgeable homebrewers I've ever known—he's always a great source of advice for others attempting to brew their own beer. His finely tuned palate—and truly delicious homebrew—impressed me back when he joined me for tastings for Serious Eats' first beer column, so I knew I wanted to bring him to the Drinks team as a resource for homebrewing recipes and troubleshooting tips. Got questions for Joe about homebrewing? Topics or styles of beer you wish he'd cover?
