i found this video awhile ago and found it interesting. its good to see things from another point of view. this video features bannana brewing in africa! i find it cool how relaxed they are with their procedures and their brewing beer which is generally lower alcohol, which means it would probably spoil before a high alcohol percent wine. i dont know for sure the percentage they are making but w.e their method is , it appears to be working!

OK, so now I don't feel so bad about sticking a straw directly into primary to sample.

I wouldn't want to drink that. People from there have an immune system that can stomach that. If I tried that, I would be on the pot for a week.

This, my friends, is a widely accepted possible method (by archaeologists) of how our modern brewing evolved! I have done research on primitive fermenting, and this matches up to what I've found. (ie open fermentation in wooden trough burried in the ground, filtered using plant material, and natural yeast and/or bacteria cultures to ferment) Funny thing is the research I did centered around mead and "ancient beers" from northern Europe (Scotland, Wales, Norway, Holland, Etc). Yeay for banana brewery!!

Not to be a know-it-all, but the yellow "gas can" is actually a water canister. Here our's are blue, clear, and brown.

The reason we sanitize is the same reason they don't, wild yeasts. They wan't them we don't. For them the wild yeast is what gets their fermentation going. For us it just causes off flavors compared to what we are originally going for.

maybe they dont all use wild yeast, maybe they use packaged yeast.
