How NOT to Brew - Chapter 3: The Chill
Go ahead, count the mistakes in this video. Feel free to laugh at my stupidity, it's OK.

Disclaimer: this is several years ago. I don't use the pool, the pool noodle / duct tape assy, that pot, or that glass carboy anymore (broke the carboy in the pool, no big surprise there). I now have a pump, and Marlee doesn't lick my carboys.

Found this video while going through old family footage.

ai think the pool was a great idea. But why didn't you just pour some of the wort out before adding the yeast? Good flick either way. :0)

Well, just let the blow-off tube empty into the pool, and I'm sure it'll be fine :mug:

How many times did you lose a whole batch into the pool using that set up? Haha.

Thanks for the laugh :mug:

me dumb. I was pretty nooby. Believe me, I cringe at the things I see myself do in that video.

Easily the best home brew video I've seen. Takes balls to make that stuff public. :mug:

Wow. How high were you when you shot that video?

Cheers! ;)

And how's your back, man? Mine started to twinge when you plucked the pot out of the pool and was in full ache watching you hold it over the carboy. :eek:

The thing that confused me the most is that you were "experienced" enough to have a big ass flask and make yeast starters but not experienced enough to care out your dog licking the bunghole?

cheers, thanks for the laughs.

That's a great lookin' starter though. ;)
