Are there more detailed videos concerning mashing?

I've never heard of roasting hops.

interesting concept ... But he boiled the grain for an hour in the brew pot actually looked like a 10 gallon corny painted black ? Also the black hose I hope it was food grade and not just a rubber garden hose , think I would pass on this.

Hi, Of course we did not use the water in the black hose, we used that water through a wort chiller to fresh water for the beer. It is a 10 gal corny and we did not boil the grains either.

Hi, we do not presently have videos of the all-grain batch we did the week before because the video team could not make it, but we did do an all grain batch and it is like a decoction. Roasting Hops bring out all the smell of its close cousins, they burn like cigarettes and the ash can color the beer. It also changes the flavor of the hops to a spicer note.

ohh it wasn't clear on the video that water was used to heat the fresh water with a chiller like a water heater. I got the impression that the grain was boiled for an hour . I did see around 7.10 the video says the grain is steeped but then around around 7.26 it states that the grain was boiled in the pot for an hour.

interesting and thanks for clearing that up
