I watched some Craigtube videos after having brewed for about 3/4 year. I had also been reading a lot on this site and elsewhere.

I may not have seen his best but I was not impressed. The ones I saw he was taking a lot of questionable shortcuts, IMO.

In one he even said his goal was to make beer not to make his beer better.

Haven't seen the other one, I'll have to look it up.

I like his personality, I don't think his goal is to educate people but to show people how HE makes beer.

I watched his vids when I started brewing and thought he had a lot of useful info for the beginner, now that I've been brewing for almost 2 years I have MY way of brewing and it is different than his way.

I was happy to see his first AG, I think he has come full circle. No matter how he brews I still look forward to his next vid.

Hes an enjoyable person to watch. Regular joe, makin beer. I am sure if grains and hops, yeast, didnt cost so much he wouldnt really make kits. Its the cheapest fastest way. I think he knows what makes the best flavored.beer. Its just how much time you have to put in it.

Thanks for turning me on to this guy. After watching a few episodes I would say it's fairly entertaining despite the low budget. I wouldn't be opposed to gaining new brewers through this guy.

Thats what he does. He gives you a real can do attitude without being condasending or making the process seem like it is to difficult to do. Originally he was only brewing kits and said he was to lazy to brew any differently. But after a few years of having his channel he has turned into a lagitamate brewer. I love the guy. I think he is an asset to the homebrew world. I dont brew the way he does but I would be lying if I said I havn't had a good Idea from him.

I enjoy craigtube videos. I got into them after getting my first kit, and for a beginner he gives a lot of useful information. I find him entertaining and watch his HBW videos every week. Not into his singing videos, but his voice isn't half bad.

I joined the 17 brew crew web site, seems like a smaller version of this site but it never hurts to have more than one place to look for more beer/cider recipes.

I haven't watched for a few years. Back then he was adamant that he didn't want to mess around with anything but the cheap kits. I think he'll find that All Grain is actually a lot cheaper. I have no idea what the 17 thing is...
