I found this series of videos on youtube (most of you have probably seen them) and found his method extremely simple assuming that he is using the extract method?

I'm still just in the research process of brewing beer and have yet to even purchase a kit but I'm getting close and was just curious if this is the basic method of extract brewing?


Also how much harder is all grain brewing for a novice?

Yeah, if you want to make really BAAAADDDD beer...

It's not that much more difficult to make great beer....but part of it involves NOT doing what Craig does...

There's plenty of thread discussions about him already to get an idea of why.

Step away from teh You Tube!

There are soem very good videos from members of this site that are nearly as easy, and geared to making higher quality beer. Plus, lots of information in the postings.

Also, check out the website www.howtobrew.com for some good reading.

Extract can be much easier than AG, depending on how serious and anal you get with it. To do a good job it takes practice, but after a couple of batches it gets much easier. AG can also be "easy" with experience and the right equipment.

I always like to research my ass off before any purchase even if it's a candy bar.


Are there any good AG video's around to watch the process step by step besides that Yur's Star Wars Brewing set up? WOW!

I'm more of a visual learner.
None of you all are from or near Roanoke, VA by any chance are you? Theres a huge micro brew festival this weekend maybe I can meet up and learn a thing or two.
