Brewing with Yuri - Video series!
 
DISCLAIMER: If you're intimidated by all grain brewing after watching these videos, see this thread. Just because my rig is somewhat complex, it doesn't mean you can't brew great all grain beer with far simpler equipment.

I've been posting videos chronicling a brew day to the 888 thread all afternoon, and I thought they might warrant their own thread. I'll add them as I go, culminating with pitching the yeast.

Links to all the videos in order:

Never measure hops with one hand...it's annoyingly painstaking.

These last two were a bit rushed since I needed to get out the door for a New Year's Eve bash. Explanations could be more thorough throughout, I think, but especially in the ones below:

Oh, and truth be told...I didn't boil off too much wort...I lost it due to siphoning through my pump while I staged everything for the video. I think I lost about a gallon of precious 888 wort! Oh, well...all in the name of brew education, I guess!

Great videos. I love seeing everyone's setups in action, and yours definately has some unique wrinkles. Very nice!!

Yuri! Wow....I have never seen an AG brewing done before so thank you so much for posting this.

When you were mentioning steam, it made me think of using a steam jacketed kettle for the lauter tun (if that is correct -- the cooler thing). although finding one might be difficult.
:mug:

Allright, I will have to come back to this after dinner.....with a beer or two for proper reviewing.

A steam jacketed mash tun or MLT (mash/lauter tun, which is indeed what my cooler is) is a kind of Holy Grail for homebrewing. Micro and even macro breweries use just such animals, but you're right, they're hard to find. ...and if you find one, it's likely to be well outside your brew budget. I'm sure I could make one, but I think I'm going to stick with steam injection for now.

Very cool, not the way I will be going about AG once I start but still very cool to observe and learn what I can from your process.

Well It doesn't beat Dry Ice Soda, but they are nice just the same. :D
