    can someone elaborate on the copper coil for cooling? when I worked for mulptiple restaurants, we just cooled liquids by placing a plastic container with frozen water, inside the pot of hot food, cools quick enough for major chains to do it

  2. haha the song, where can i get it? lol

  3. 600th sub

  4. love the song at the end hahaha

  5. i find liquid malt is better than the ppowered malt as i think it mixes better

  6. Cool video. Trying to learn. What size cornelius container was that? Looks like a 3 gal?

  7. Outstanding video. Learning to #brew is a lot of fun, and I have learned a little from this video. Some say they'd rather just buy their beer, and that's understandable. I just love seeing my family/friends enjoying something that I made. The experience is part of the fun & reward for me anyways. #Cheers

    Thanks again #Jordan for making this video for all of us.

  8. Start by getting a decent audio track…

  9. What if using a primary fermenting bucket with no airlock, but just a lid over the top? The beer kit I purchased came with this. and then a glass carboy for the second fermenting. is it common to have a primary bucket like this? 

  10. Another way too cool the hot wort is to simply add cold water to it, say you have three gallons of wart, you need to bring the total to 6 gallons anyways so you add 3 gal. Of tap water to get the wort cooled down

  11. Thank you so much! Just finished making the first wort of my life with the help of your well constructed video. I especially like that you provide some scientific information with the instruction. Awesome <(")

  12. Love the use of Psychostick!

  13. I liked your video up until you used a chill glass on a dark beer.

  14. You da man…Beer is good yes it is!

  15. Thanks for the tips, sir.

  16. Don't get cheap-ass aluminum ones unless you plan on conditioning the inside metal before you brew with it, which is, in my opinion, more trouble than it's worth.

  17. Restaurant supply store. Any moderate sized city will have at least one, any big city will have several. 5 gallon stainless steel model shouldn't run you more than $20-25. You can get 20-24 quart ones at wally world or target for about the same price, but that extra space is a real blessing.

  18. Where can one purchase a big kettle like that inexpensively?

  19. So the steeping grains is your mash? Did you mill them? Ive never seen it done without a mash tun. But using just a mesh net looks waaaay easier. Im also assuming your grains werent malted since you added malt?

  20. This is one of the better how to homebrew videos out there. The only thing I would add is to stress the importance of cleaning and sanitizing all equipment and anything that comes into contact with the beer. The fermentation process is thriving place for bacteria which will ruin your beer.

  21. no truer words

  22. How important is it to transfer the brew into a secondary fermentation tank?

    Very informative and useful video, thanks

  24. Great vid! Question: what do you do at 4:45, adding water? Did you siphon off half of the content to make room?:s

  25. The song at the end was fuckin' hilarious! I can't wait to start home-brewing. I've been pretty heavy into craft beer for quite a few years now, and I can't wait to see where my mind takes me brewing up different stuff! 

  26. I found the video very interesting and it was worth watching.

  27. Sounds like the postal guy

  28. BEER IS GOOD.

  29. Cheers geeza. Good video :)

  30. Jordan, this is an EXCELLENT video. Thank you.

  31. Let's go drink some BEEEEER!!

  32. Yup you could just go buy some Guinness (at twice the price of making it and no sense of satisfaction)…. Just as you could eat at Mac Donald's everyday instead of learning to cook for yourself…. but there are still some of us that aren't too lazy to do for ourselves and enjoy knowing more about what we eat and drink than the price and logo on the box of can.

  33. yea I could do all this or I could just buy myself a 6 pack of Guinness and save myself some stress, time, and aggravation. 

  34. that looks delicious!

  35. Loved the Primus to Rob Zombie to Limp Bizkit music ending.

  36. best song at the end!

  37. whats in the steeping bag?
    

  38. how to make this extract at home ?

  39. Great video … I would like to start kegging my beer but do not have a lot of space… what kind (…and size) is your fridge?
