Okay, so my buddies died laughing at me when they watched this video I posted to youtube. I was documenting my third batch of homebrew and the dreaded boil over happened.

Hope this puts a smile on your face; it did theirs. Don't let this happen to you!!

HAHHAHAHAHAHA

Everything looked so shiny right up until it blew up! Hops will always do that, so if you are anywhere near boiling over, it is imperative to lower the heat significantly then add hops, then resume boiling slowly.

...and brew outside.

Rookie move... Nice quality video though. What did you use to record that?

Fortunately, boil-overs are self-limiting. They put out the fire all by themselves.

The hop addition got me this weekend too, although your language was a lot cleaner than mine

Yep I lol'd.

I think it's far more funny to those who have experienced the same thing...which is probably most of us. Or at least those of us who dare to be honest.
