Most canned goods are heated to temperatures at/above boiling, but this is WITHOUT being sealed. They are topped similarly to the way we do in the home brew (sterilized "caps" put onto sterile product). Many canning techniques then use the vacuum generated by the cooling air above the product to seal the jar. Pressure inward and outward are two very different things. Heating any enclosed container to at/near boiling is a serious risk, and this stuff would be like napalm, thick and sticky and it would instantly cause at least 2nd degree burns if not 3rd. Warming the can in boiling water taken off the stove first would be the safest way to do it (as you know the contents of the can will never get too hot).

I dunno, I just brewed my first batch and just cracked the top on one side, and an air hole on the other. Took about a minute to drain. The slow drain time allowed me to stir with my right hand to make sure nothing stuck to the bottom or clumped together (was off the stove of course). I figure if you're going to spend 2-3 hours for the initial brew, what's an extra minute?

Ya gotta love this guy. Even though he does so much wrong he's pretty meticulous about it. He seems so proud of the equipment his Uncle passed on to him...he's discovered the joy of homebrewing - good for him. Someone just needs to give him a few pointers, and he'll be a master brewer in no time!

I already sent him advice and even the link to this site, which he thanked me for. He really does like the basic American lager type kit and he does use LME with it now.

For the thousands of "brewers" that just want to do the above and are happy with what they make and do not feel like progressing further, then most of his video is not that bad.

Sure as hell is not advanced brewing by any means though.

As for an exploding can, do you seriously think putting a can in boiling water for only 5 minutes is going to create any significant pressure?? I do not. That said I did tell him for safety's sake he should punch a hole in the can.

As for the road rage video, that was staged in a wheat field. (I'm still a tad concerned about fireing firearms out of a moving vehicle though. )

I love his videos. He seems really happy with what he makes and he also appears to be very open to criticism and advice.

Love this thread, and I'm really relieved to get the whole "what happens when I die" question resolved. Speaking of the white haired gentleman. . .he looks really familiar. Bilbo Baggins?

FYI, at normal atmospheric pressure, boiling H2O can't reach a temperature above 212. An aqueous solution of anything is going to have a boiling point higher that 212. LME has so much dissolved that its boiling point is going to be way above that, so the can can't explode. Sure, if there's something like ETOH in the can that has a boiling point lower than water's, you might have a problem.

BTW, he also has a video called "Beer and Guns" I don't have the courage to watch it.

wow! he should just drink rubbing alcohol, it would be cheaper and probably less dangerous.
