I wanted to open up a thread here as a place to collect feedback on this overall project I've been working on. As many of you know, I had this article sitting around on my website for a while that described all grain brewing in a nutshell. I moved website servers a few months ago and eventually got around to republishing the text HERE.

Over the last couple years, I felt like I should have provided a lot more detail in the original text but decided to leave the original alone and use youtube to provide the details instead. It's been slow going but I've got the first three episodes up now.




If you like to use youtube's playlist feature, that's http://www.youtube.com/user/BobbyFromNJ#grid/user/D29FE33E17F07F8D.

I'm completely open to criticisms of all kinds so if you see something that would make future videos better, let me know.

Well, let's see. Ep 2 was in August and Ep 3 was done this past weekend. I think you're looking at Summer for 4. Just kidding.... I hope. I'd really like to hit these every other weekend but the editing time is what kills me.

Nice videos so far. I really liked them so far and don't mnf if they get a bit long, as long as there's some good info in there. I really like to know the science and technique involved in stuff I really get into, and your videos have provided me with a bit more knowledge so far. Thanks, and I can't wait for the upcoming videos!

Even though I have read How to Brew and I am confident I knew most of what you had said I still feel as if I learned something from your videos. I think your delivery of the information is good and by the 3rd video you can tell that you're getting more comfortable in front of the camera.
Also, I like how you use proper terminology, but also include the lay description (whether you say it or it appears on the screen). Overall I would say these are the best brewing videos I have seen so far. Can't wait for #4.

As a newer brewer (ha, that rhymes!), I think these are great. It's nice to know what is going on scientifically, and it helps to have an experienced brewer explain how everything works. I'm looking forward to #4.

Nothing I have read so far has "clicked" the way your videos and primer article have. Thanks Bobby!

I agree. Three years ago I read "How to Beer" and "Joy of" and still wasn't comfortable with AG. I joined HBT, read your AG primer, and went out and built an MLT the next day....
