Great video as always. It's very good of you to go to so much work to get correct information on the interweb, particularly utube, which is fraught with SO much bad information.

(off hydrometer topic) I don't think I ever thanked you for your concise information on AG from your website. It helped push me over to going AG. The brewing books are great but too full of technical information when what I really needed was the meat and potatoes. You gave that to me in a step by step instruction. I'm not saying the technical info isn't necessary but sometimes you just want to know the steps! You're a good man and one of my brewing heroes. Cheers to you!

Agreed. Hopefully folks looking for brewing information on youtube will come across your videos before they find craigtube or the powdered sugar beer guy.

Thanks for all the props. I look at this hobby as a gateway to an overall better quality microbrew universe so anything established brewers can do to promote and enhance the hobby is a net gain. The exposure we have on sites like youtube is pretty awesome in that endevour. Down with craigtube!

Nice video. I understand that craigtube is a dork, but why is everyone against his videos? I cant watch them because i find him annoying.

Because he sweeps his yeast up off of the floor, and then uses it...

Great video Bobby
