Such a funny video.

I love how you captured the beer geek mantra about knowing all about the details... only to use a 15 year old can, say it was your first time then even use coconut in the batch.

Classic.

I would rather continue to believe that you were purposely mocking other newbs on youtube than hear you actually say "It was all true." :-)

I think the likelyhood that you actually had a 15 year old can is much less plausible.

Funny video!

I thought it was funny that he had no idea what "cold crashing" actually was and used it out of context at least twice.

Oh and the Fred Flintstone mash paddle too - where's the brontosaurus burgers?

How the hell could you 100% sanitize that fiber you're filtering with? There's no way even soaking it that would get all the nooks and crannies of that crap. I don't see it.

My definition of cold crashing is any means of dropping the temperature to a point at which solid proteins coagulate out of the wort. This happens when I "ice it", and again when I add my top off. Since I don't have a fridge large enough to put my fermenter in, these two things serve functionally as a poor man's quasi cold crash in a way.

I use a clean brand new piece of filter media every time I transfer, remember we just need to kill all the microbes in it, not completely flush them out. Yet to have an infection from this.

You like that broom handle, eh? I'm a pretty low tech improvisational type of guy, If something is free and it works, why spend money on something else.

Unfortunately all true. Some like to share their successes, but I think it's a lot funnier to share my failures. I was (and still am to an extent) a super nube!

Not as much as you'd think, sure a lot, but more people are nice about it. They tend to appreciate my honesty and humility, and overlook my gross stupidity and overconfidence, due to the intense comedic value of my complete and utter failure.

You're forgetting the most awesome part, that you are so willing and able to laugh at yourself. Kudos to you!!

i had a friend who had a mr beer kit. He told me to go to the local homebrew shop and buy thier kit, so i did three years ago and now i do both extract and all grain when i got time, i think the thing is to just enjoy your new hobby and move along at your own pace it can be rewarding in many ways.

Great video. Can't imagine getting used to drink vomit
Looking at the bright side, anything you brew after that will be an improvement.

I'm looking into getting into homebrewing, but I'm in college and live in a dorm. Seeing as it's sorta frowned upon to brew beer in your dorm room I was looking for somethin small. The consensus seems to be that the quality of the Mr. Beer kit is kinda questionable..do you guys have any suggestions of other smaller kits id be able to use?

Dont let anyone tell you that you cant brew good beer in a Mr. Beer. I guess the main thing I would ask is if you live in a dorm, where will you brew? Do you have a stove in there?

That looks like a great option. How many gallons does one kit make since it is a 2 gallon fermentor?
