Home Brewing/Fermentation Kits (via amazon):

I’ve brewed beer three times in the last few months and every single brew has been the best-tasting beer I’ve ever had. between the freshness and love, home-brew seems to exist in a entirely different category when comparing it to the beer your probably use to drinking. Pick out a day on the weekend where you can dedicate a few hours to brewing and give it a shot. I’m telling you, if you follow the directions in this video or whatever recipe your have, you will have incredible tasting beer for yourself and all the glorious people in your life that you can gift bottles too. Enjoy!

    Hi, does anyone know what's the name of this heater, on minute 6:55?
    I mean to get a simular one in Amazon…

  2. JohtoMaster 92 says:

    If you want to go a step further and get REALLY clear beer try putting a few grams of unflavored gelatin in the fermenter before putting it in the fridge. I started doing this and it gets crystal clear every time.

  3. Brett says:

    Can you try this morning with wild yeast?

  4. Auke De Boer says:

    If you want to add orange flavor to you beer, you could think of adding orange peel.

  5. James Heal says:

    So let me get this straight. We take yeast which is a living organism, we feed it sugar till it dies from shiting itself to death you know to produce the alcohol which is realistically yeast s***. Then we filter out the Corpses and put it in a frosty glass. Damn, people really will do anything to get high….

  6. Kevin Duquette says:

    Great video. You are inspiring me to try all grain and mango!!! I have been brewing for over 6 years now, but never saw the need to go full grain. I like your "tea bag" technique.

  7. Juan Esteban Chavarría says:

    Mango IPA: what a great idea!!!

  8. Stephan de Vries says:

    Squeezing the bag does not matter.

  9. Tis'ur"Master'" says:

    damn. I''ll just buy it from the store.

  10. ARCSTREAMS says:

    "do not drive and drink" id say that is exactly the right order ,you mean do not drink and drive,,but driving to the bar then drinking is ok

  11. Ren Hopes says:

    fix the color. of the beer

  12. Derek Frost says:

    All of this equipment is unnecessary. Instead of paying loads for a heat-resistant bag, you could just mash in a big saucepan and pour through a cheap cotton cheesecloth once cool. You need a much longer mash – 30mins is not gonna cut it.. 🙂

  13. Alfredo Marín says:

    Really enjoy your video mate! Great vid

  14. Nitroxide says:

    Great video!! Must have watched this 3 or 4 times now. Well explained, good footage, and the presenting is high quality. Keep up the good work 🙂

  15. JosheyG34 says:

    Dude you know it isn't 1842 anymore right? Why use ounces?

  16. qwerty says:

    The beer head is just the left over foam from the sanitizing liquid lol.

  17. Ryan Xu says:

    I’ve always been wanting to brew some solid ipa myself. Ok it’s time. Thanks for sharing this video man! Cheers

  18. flanker2150 says:

    for idiots ? not for me XD (joke) In my country BIAB is not popular. I and all home brewers i known using braid from hydraulic hose 😉

  19. Ryan Jesse says:

    I can’t find the priming sugar info

  20. Alex Carvell says:

    I live in Europe can someone please convert these units to metric

  21. Raymond Moreno says:

    Nice video.

    I don’t drink bier because I don’t like the bitter, hoppy, taste.

    But the other day I tried a vanilla porter from a brewery, and it was fantastic. Smooth and tasty.

    Considering trying my hand at a vanilla stout or porter.

    Thanks for the clear presentation.

  22. Lord Narayana says:

    i've been looking for a decent beer vid all day. this is perfect thanks 🙂 FYI you can just boil your tap water for a few mins to get the chlorine gas out or easier let it sit overnight 😉

    I've been fermenting tons of foods for years… kombucha, kefir, lacto pickles of all sorts and big on cheese-making. never tried beer though yet and never heard of anyone doing a fermented diet but I can totally understand why. bioavailability, krebs acids, and alchemical magic 🙂 I had a period where i fermented everything i ate lol

  27. Pavan Walvekar says:

  29. Michael Gerth says:

    Hey can you upload the link to the recipe you used for this ipa. Thanks love the video

  30. CoolCalmMaurice says:

    This was mad informative. Good work.

  31. Mr Ginger says:

    You should try testing with bentonite for clearing

  32. zerosoma33 says:

    20:11 TaStES LiKe A SoUr GuMmi WoRm oh noes

  33. LeJimster says:

    I normally aim for a 90 minute mash, but 60 is usually recommended. Also while using a pot for brew in a bag method is fine, most of us home brewers prefer using a modified cooler box as it's insulated and will only drop a couple of degrees over an hour.

  34. Michiel van den Berg says:

    How did you heat up the Mango"s? in an oven?water?

  35. joshua slater says:

    Whats the alchohol percentage in the ida

  36. Ariel Araya says:

    Nice guide mate! You should try with a passionfruit one!. Thanks for sharing this. I´ll try it in my home.

  37. Beanmachine91 says:

    hops is related to marijuana, i love drinking my weed

  38. Beanmachine91 says:

    beer is tea for strong men!

  39. Emma Fergie says:

    Hi! Thanks for the great Vid! What was the amount of barley that you used? for a 2 Gallon batch?

  40. george says:

    Hipster cunt

  41. Troy Johnson says:

    Would you mind sharing your recipe ?

  42. Paweł says:

    5:11 cracked but not turned to flower? 🙂

  43. James Isgoed Williams says:

    Hey, i set up a brewing system company in Europe, and we making a USA model. Fancy Brewing on it with me?

  44. Shane O'Neill says:

    Great vid. Thinking about stepping up from extract to all-grain, the brew bag seems like a good way to go.

    Surprised by the straight-pour racking you did during priming though. Wouldn't all that splashing unnecessarily oxygenate your beer?

  45. K F says:

    Personally I think plastic tastes funny, it may be cheaper but ill spend the thirty extra bones on glass. Really increases quality. I never use any chlorine or distilled water I use sweet tasting well water. It comes out great great video.

  46. Lazy-assed Swami says:

    i'm making beer because of this video. salamat!


    Looked a very cloudy final product. Not sure I would want to drink that. Finings would sort that out.

  48. Brian A. says:

    19:08 they all look like different versions of each other.

  49. Hank Moody says:

    I'm so fucking sick of IPA.
