I'm guessing no based on the view count. But this reminded me of the "TakeSomeAdvice" videos a bit... Rather than being psychotic about sanitation this guy just makes me smack my head and say, doh!!

Wiping things down with plain paper towels, rinsing sanitized equipment with tap water, racking with no mention of gravity readings. I don't really want to troll him, but man, I'd rather not new homebrewers took this advice...

I see your concern but lets be honest, beer was made during the dark ages when sanitation was not even a concept. Yes the beer was different than what we know it as but it was still wort, fermentation and drink all the same.

Although I am careful about my sanitation I think people put far too much paranoia into the process at times.

I got a minute or two in and shook my head. It's aerate not oxidize and he wasn't even doing that.

What's the problem here?

I do these things, end up with great beer, cider & wine. Don't want sanitizer in my beverages, and once it's done fermenting it's done and gravity readings wont change the attenuation. So I often skip taking an FG.

He's a little more cavalier than I am on the whole, but it works for him.

My qualm is that if he's brewing a hefe and using a hefe yeast, he better rig a blowoff on that thing!
