Thanks guys. I'm a visual learner and I figured a lot of homebrewers were as well which is why I do the videos.

Love your site.
That's a common question. The main reason is boilovers. For a 2L starter I use an 8 qt. pot and the foam still gets close to the top. It'd be a mess using the flask. It's also near impossible to stir the DME clumps in the flask, whereas in the pot I can use a whisk.

The Homebrew Academy - We teach you how to brew beer that rocks.

THANK YOU!!! I am a procrastinator and haven't gotten a scale or a stir plate set-up yet. Now I think I will!
