Nice! I dig the music and the overview. The only suggestion I would make is to focus more on giving enough information to really achieve a successful first beer, and leave out the stuff that gets more complicated. For example...

Specify say 1.25qts/lb of grain for the mash temp. Don't worry about letting people know you might need more than a 60 minute boil. Specify a sparge temp and state a certain volume. Maybe do everything based on a certain weight of grains, maybe 8lbs or 10lbs. Get all the "it depends" out of it and just create a rigid framework. With that done, you could actually walk a newbie through an entire first time brewing AG session in less than 5 minutes.

I dig the music too.

I had actually thought of doing something similar. 5 minutes to a successful first AG batch. Then do a video with a little added flexibility... Do a second batch. Then a little more flexibility and a bit more equipment and do a third batch. After about 5 or 10 batches, you could walk a newbie through a ton of little lessons that would have them drinking their way to a rather high level of brewing knowledge... And they could spend more time brewing and less time reading. It'd be a great intro to the hobby.

Of course, I would start with BIAB just for the utmost in simplicity.

Same thing for me. I ended up going to youtube and typing in jdflow homebrew and it was 1st or second on the list.

Pretty good vid.

Nicely done (though I'd expect someone with that many LPs to pick better background music).
