Great video! I laughed out loud. Love the dog licking your bunghole, but for me the best part was when you're standing around, KNOWing it's too full, and I could just see the thoughts going through your head as you try to convince yourself it's ok to just pour the yeast in. That was awesome! Thanks so much for posting this.

Thanks for sharing! It's good to laugh at yourself man, none of us are perfect but having fun learning makes that truth A LOT easier.

I'm pretty sure we've *ALL* had that moment where we stood there and said, from your video, and verbatim... 'It's gonna *have* to be ok. It's gonna *have* to be ok.'

LOL, great video. And resourceful - using the pool as part of your cooling equipment...

Just wondering... why have the kettle in the pool when you had an actual wort chiller? Did you really think it would help the IC that much?

Oh, and I love the way you say wort (eg, "wart"), you big noobie . I would probably pass on one of your beers if you first told me that you rehydrated dry yeast in "warm" water!

That was brilliant. Made me laugh out loud. Think I snorted too. The Benny Hill music was the icing on the cake. Thanks for posting. Made my day.

Am I the only person that equates brewing to cooking?
Meaning that I like to do it in a clean, controlled environment from start to finish?

I wouldn't chill in a pool, leave the kettle open for God knows what to fall in it, have animals running around, etc. But hey if it works, more power to you!

You've never grilled, I take it?
