Go ahead, count the mistakes in this video. Feel free to laugh at my stupidity, it's OK.


Disclaimer: this is several years ago. I don't use the pool, the pool noodle / duct tape assy, that pot, or that glass carboy anymore (broke the carboy in the pool, no big surprise there). I now have a pump, and Marlee doesn't lick my carboys.

Found this video while going through old family footage.

ai think the pool was a great idea. But why didn't you just pour some of the wort out before adding the yeast? Good flick either way. :0)

Well, just let the blow-off tube empty into the pool, and I'm sure it'll be fine

How many times did you lose a whole batch into the pool using that set up? Haha.

Thanks for the laugh

Easily the best home brew video I've seen. Takes balls to make that stuff public.

And how's your back, man? Mine started to twinge when you plucked the pot out of the pool and was in full ache watching you hold it over the carboy.

The thing that confused me the most is that you were "experienced" enough to have a big ass flask and make yeast starters but not experienced enough to care out your dog licking the bunghole?

cheers, thanks for the laughs.
