More About Josh:

Josh Weikert took up homebrewing in 2007 as a way to stay sane during graduate school. He is a founding member of the Stoney Creek Homebrewers, has medaled in every BJCP beer category, is a BJCP Grand Master Judge and Certified Cicerone, and was twice the Eastern Pennsylvania Homebrewer of the Year. 

His writing is featured in several brewing publications including Beer Connoisseur, Brew Your Own and Craft Beer & Brewing, and he leads a double life as the jet-setting author of the Beer Simple blog (beer-simple.com).
