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. )
