Default Beer Fermentation Time Lapse Video

Recent time lapse fermentation video I made. Enjoy!


Feel free to shoot me some suggestions for other thoughts on my second attempt for a time lapse. I am really curious to monitor fermentation with a temperature probe during the entire fermentation to determine how much extra heat is generated during the fermentation cycle relative to the room temperature.

Yes, I will definitely use a lighter beer in my next vid...

It is actually surprising to see how much the cake moves around during this time. Pretty cool, though I'd use less Frames.

No need to get too worked up about the light. My wife works at a local homebrewing supply store and gets all sorts of stuff for free (this batch cost me nothing). The whole point of this batch was to get a time lapse video of the fermentation. Beside the light is artificial, not UV (sun), so I should not be too worried about any degradation of alpha acids to 3-methyl-2-butene-1-thiol (skunky flavor).

The other thing I don't like about this fermentation is the lack of temperature control. For all beer I make I place the carboy in a water bath and maintain +/- 1°F. Fermenting in open air is terrible temperature control which is why I want to prove that the fermentor gets hot in open air, much hotter than the temperature you think the room is at. That was my major quality concern with this batch - but who cares it was free to me!

I bet it still tastes great when complete.

Thanks for all the time you put in to the video. I learned a bit about the process. I, too, was amazed at how much movement occurs while the brewer sleeps. This video is almost like shooting the inside of the fridge after the door closes. We know what to expect yet still watch intently.
