Juno Choi, Marketing Manager at BSG HandCraft and Founder of Chop Liver Craft Beer Festivals has been a craft beer lover since 1998 and a homebrewer since 2000. He’s worked in a number of spots in the homebrewing and craft beer industry including his current spot at BSG HandCraft and a 10 year stint at Northern Brewer. In Juno’s current role at BSG HandCraft he oversees the various marketing content of the division including but not limited to the website, social media, conferences, and new products. He is also a Certified Cicerone® and Certified Beer Judge through the BJCP.
I got to know Juno not too long after tasting a beer (recipe below) that he put together for the National Homebrewers Conference. It’s a great beer… you should brew it! Not only is Juno a great brewer and a great guy, he’s also a knowledgeable industry insider.
Juno will be here on Homebrew Finds starting at 9 AM Central on Friday February 27th. He will be taking your questions on malt, malting, recipe formulation and general questions about homebrewing and the homebrew industry.
Tune into Homebrew Finds on Friday morning to join in the discussion!

About The Beer, Estimates:
OG: 1.061 at 70% Efficiency
The all grain recipe features Patagonia Malts from beginning to end. Extract Patagonia Extra Pale Malt doesn’t exist. You could still get the same idea by substituting 8 lbs of Liquid Malt Extract for the Extra Pale and steep the caramel malts. That gets you the same gravity and pretty well everything else, although the SRM does go up to 18.74. Again, not the exact same beer, but you will get a lot of the great roasty flavors from the Patagonia Caramel Malts and all of the hop character.
