The entire web site is strictly personal views on how brewing should be done. If you speak to 20 different homebrewers or brewmasters, you are likely to get 20 different answers. Videos here represent personal brewing styles. Many homebrewers will develop their own techniques and possibly some specialized methods during the learning process.

In some early videos, a few incorrect terms were used, and were corrected in subsequent videos. You will also notice that elements that exist in one video might not exist in another. Cramming all of the brewing techniques and information used into a single video would make them substantially longer than they already are. You are highly encouraged to watch as many videos as possible, pick up small details, listen carefully, and take notes. Especially in later videos, there is more detail given about advanced brewing skills than early videos, yet early videos concentrate more on the beginning stages, such as temperatures and calculations. In short, watching all of the videos increases learning.

Again, the methods used here are strictly personal, however, new brewers are highly recommended to follow these steps until feeling comfortable enough to develop their personal methods. There are definitely wrong ways to brew, but there are multiple right ways to get the job done.

If you don't get it right the first, second, or third time, DON'T GIVE UP! This is an art, a science, and a hobby. Did you learn to drive a stick shift the first time? Probably not. Practice made you better. Same with brewing. The more you brew, the more steps here will make sense, and you will learn from errors. Take good notes too! Keep at it and don't let anybody talk to out of it. Some brewers spend years perfecting their skills.
