And he did, and over the years he's become one of the folks who's gotten a lot of people into the hobby. It's so funny to see the shift in just a few years.
Negativity on forums comes in waves unfortunately. HBT does a very good job of keeping things very positive and helpful for the most part. It's a community I'm proud to be a member of.

But yes, I remember all the Craigtube hate. Personally, I like his quirky-ness, but I don't really gain anything from watching his videos. They are fun to watch, but I just find too many things I don't agree with to spend my time on his channel.

I have tons of respect for him though. It takes a lot of courage to put yourself and your ideas in front of a camera for the whole world to judge and see. He's done good things for the hobby, and that should be praised.

I remember quite a few negative comments on his videos that were from people on here. I mean, they didn't even bother to have a different HBT and YouTube name. I also remember some great comments from HBT members. In particular, I recall one of Craig's rants, a great one that he took down unfortunately, that prompted BobbyM to make a really good response video.

I was watching one of his HBW recently where he mentioned the malt liquor crowd rattling his cage now. He was being a good joe about,basically saying live & let live. Idk what's wrong with some people being far too intolerant of what others like. I think Craig brews some tasty lookin stuff. I'd be perk as a ruttin buck to share some home brews & stories with him. He's been doin it for some 25 years.

What does he do on Friday nights? Is it music or beer related? I'm a big Justin tv fan, that's where I get most of my content for my roku on.

You should see the episode where a fan of his from Minnesota came to visit him, and Midwest Supplies donated a wort chiller, a boiling kettle, several pounds of dextrose, and other stuff. If I knew the link I'd post it.....

Anyway, it's just him and this guy sitting on the front porch talking, and they went out to dinner and drinks afterword.......

Any one know if he has an all grain video, I've seen his partial mash method which I'm gonna use on my next PM.

Yes, he has at least one all-grain video. I think he's only done a handful of AG batches to this point. I like the one where he spends 45 minutes hand milling his grain!
