Default My Barley Wine Learning Experience

Not sure this is the best place to put this, but I just threw together a fun video of my last Barley Wine attempt...

(I've noticed videos get chopped when posting here, so it's better to open a new window.)

Awesome video! Love the music and the filming of the "casualties".

"What could possibly go wrong?"

I believe that's in the book of "Famous Last Words"... Right up there with "Isn't that cute?"

Did you have to mop the walls too, or just the floor? Would have been good to have some chalk outlines on the floor. lol

I do have to wonder if fermcap would have helped you to avoid the mess...

ive gotten in the process of just putting a blow off tube on all my brews for the 1st 4-5days then replacing it with an airlock, i would rather be safe then mop the walls and ceiling

I dumped it - it sat open for several hours, so I figured that the chance it wouldn't be contaminated was small.

Wow, quite the fermentation!

I would've just skimmed off the top, santized the lid & airlock, then put it back on.....but maybe that's just me.....

Nice video! I would have gave it a chance. You never really know until its bottled and aged how it will turn out!
