My take - relative n00b with about a dozen brews under my belt - he is going to end up with beer; but could (and probably would - I do admire Alton) do better next time.

This has actually been discussed ad nauseam here before. Do a search for "Alton" - he's everywhere!

Most of us agree that he could do a lot better, but his show and a copy of TCJOHB were what sparked my interest in the hobby, so I can't badmouth him too much!

I saw the discussion, several of them, had to go find it to see what all the fuss was about.

This time there are links to the actual program in thread.

Also, someone more polite than me might be able to get those links into the Mr. Beer sticky without having the goblin delete my sarcasm.

Thank you Yuri.

First off, let me say that I love alton. He is the reason that I love to cook now. He also resparked my interest in home brewing. i had been wanting to get into it a few years back but just never got around to it, till I saw his homebrew episode. After actually brewing my own beer, I realize that his process could have been better but for a basic beer he was spot on. Will it be great, no, but drinkable at the least.

Plus they had to cram an entire brew day, and fermenting, priming, and bottling into a 30 minute episode. I thought the show was great. Good eats is my favorite show. For touching on the basics of brewing, and how to get started, I think Alton and crew hit the nail head on!

I like AB too but was dissapointed by his show on brewing beer. Kind of made me wonder about his expertise in everything else.

Damnit, I've been doing dryhopping all wrong. :D

Oh my GOD! We need to contact the food network and get that censored quickly. Think of the crappy beer people are going to have after boiling 1/2# of husks and 'sparging.' :P

What a tard. I liked his show...until now.

He's really not paid to be the master of every recipe he shows on Good Eats. They likely do 3 days worth of research on the topic, write the script, and shoot. I'd follow his process over the Mr. Beer instructions any day. I think it's most commendable that he brought home brewing to the masses even if he doesn't get it exactly right.
