  1. You left out the process of racking.

  2. Good Video Tutorial! Great for if you just starting out!

  3. I understand the sanitizer is food safe but wasn't that alot of sanitizer going into the batch?

  4. fantastic video! to the point! 17!

  5. This was a really informative, clean and easy to understand tutorial vid. Thanks!

  6. Learned so much from this video, thanks!

  7. very good thanks

  8. will it work without the specialty grains?

  9. does anyone know who has the best prices online and in large quantities?

  10. I am a keen home brewer and have done a large amount of bar work over the years. One publican would boost the alcohol content of his delivered beer by putting it on stillage, knocking in a spile, allow the excess gas to escape. He would then place the cask on its end, knock out the cork bung, add some sugar – usually a syrup or a brewers sugar then plunge his penis into the barrel. He had a yeast infection around his glans and the natural yeast would cause a third fermentation. Some of his beers would rise by as much as 2%abv. Sadly he was convicted in 2010 and is serving a 7 year term. Still.

  11. Very helpful. Thanks for the great video.

  12. Can you show us how to make the Moonshine

  13. MMMMMMMmmmmmmmm

  14. Great vid. but didn't tell me hoe it got so full right before you transfered to you bottling bucket. did you top up or should it be that high when you start?

  15. Muslim bag.. turn the caption on

  16. Don't forget to sanitize! If your new to brewing beer make sure that whatever you have touching the beer is germ free to prevent off flavors which make a beer nasty.

  17. thanks shia labeouf now i know how to make beer

  18. Make better beer with Brew Tracker. It's free from the App store.
    You can track recipes, dates and processes. Help understand why some brews turn out better than others.

  19. This video is incredibly well made. Good job, I learned a lot.

  20. Lt Colonel Nikolai Petrovich Radchenko

    Fuck a kettle ama use my grandma's bigsss black cauldron n brew a shit load lol

  21. It was nice! Thank you.

  22. what are the bags called?

  23. Thank you for this video. I can read all of the books that i can and still would mess this sort of thing up. I learn best by watching a thing being made/crafted. Two questions, One– can you use a bag of, like the one in the video. some sort for all grain brewing?( so as to avoid what is called a "stuck sparge"). Two– can you use bottles that you get when you buy your beer in a store, or is that not a wise thing to do. ??

  24. Ah, extract brewing… the ultimate cheat in the world of alcohol…

  25. I have recently decided to brew a 40% vol wash in a 1 litre bottle how much sugar and yeast would i need ? help appreciated.

  26. i usually heat the malt extract in hot water before pouring it in the crock pot.

  27. Great !

  28. There is no such thing as "nearest home brew store" except United States. so use the old school methods

  29. ShaunshankRedemption

    The only thing not mentioned in this video is the sediment in the bottom of the fermenting vessel. It's not apparent in this video as i'm fairly sure his beer wasnt fermented. You dont want any sediment/dead yeast when bottling or racking your beer as it introduces 'off' flavours to your brew.

  30. thanks for that very informative video on how to brew beer…..

  31. i have no intentions of doing this, yet i find it very therapeutic to drink a good beer and watch a video about making beer.

  32. What is that alien language? Ohhh its imperial system xD

  33. Maximilliano Bannatazzarrinio

    there's sanitizer in there! all u had to do is rinse it a couple more times.

  34. I guess the only part that might really suck is the bottling part.. sanitize all those bottles and fill em up… man… that must take ages and be hella boring and laborious.

  35. Great vid mate! Very informative

  36. This look easy

  37. Sebastian Steiner

    Very good explanation of how easy brewing is but I prefer all grain brewing.

  38. 12 minutes 0f credibility taken away by that lousy pour at the end

  39. I thought beer companies do not add malt extract

  40. i stoped the video at 0:30.
    No brewer would put extract in his beer.
    This video is clearly for people that don't want to brew beer, but would like to say to others that they do.

  41. dude thank you!

  42. Out of curiosity, if I wanted to add say, a light apple flavor or fruit-like flavor to me beer, how would I go about doing this? I don't want a super overpowering fruit flavor (I'd just make wine at that point), but flavoring it would be nice!

  43. When you poor cold water in, is that cold water sanitized somehow? Do we need to boil it before it's cold? Thanks
