Showing off my free Braumeister 20L

Unread postby SirGussi » Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:44 am

Ok, here's the story,
Last new years eve I promised myself I'd finally take the plunge and start making my own beer.
Been thinking about it for a few years but always pushed it off...

So I find this beginners kit at a local homebrew store, nothing fancy, at all, but something to get me started.
I make the order online on a Thursday and go to pick it up the next day, but the owner is sick and can't get me the kit until after the weekend.
This is a tiny shop and he's the only one that works there so I'm obviously not brewing my first beer that weekend like I had planned...
I was more than a little bit disappointed!

I then spend that weekend watching ALOT of the brewing videos on youtube, and I notice that some of these guys are getting sent equipment to try out, to review and what not.
And then I notice that alot of them have fewer subscribers on youtube than I do...
I am a filmmaker and I happen to live in Iceland, I make music videos in my spare time and one of my videos has about 5 million views...
Maybe I can do something with this right ?

So I start writing an email talking about how great I am, my love for beer, how many subscribers I have and so on.
I then somehow find the nerve to send it out to a few company's that make brewing equipment, the usual suspects...
What's the harm I thought...

Well...I got a couple of positive responses back straight away!
But no takers...
Not until a few days later I got an email from a guy at Speidel!

He had taken the time to watch my other videos, liked them and decided that maybe they would take a chance on me.
In return I would have to make them a video.

So, here it is, I hope you enjoy it:

Congrats on the free Braumeister. And I really like the video. Let me guess: the waterfall, steam and lava clips are no stock video, but your own footage?

Cheers!

Ofcourse!

Everything is shot by me except the lava shot, that was shot by a friend a few years ago and is from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption.

Thanks!

I had a blast doing this as it joins together both of my biggest hobbies and I am planing to make a few more of these videos.
Possibly just simply "Beer - 202" but Im not sure what to do there except just go into more detail...

Any ideas ?

Maybe one topic like cooling or kegging as a single video?

Very nice.

My only constructive criticism would be that you didn't show the top filter plate being installed after filling the malt pipe, which may confuse a new user.

But a great video all the same.
Cheers :cheers:

Damn...You are right!

Speidel didn't have an issue about it when I showed it to them so it's "ok" I guess...
But it's true I didn't notice that...I do know I shot the footage of me putting it in though...must have gotten lost in the edit.

DAMN!

A friend of mine wrote it for a TV show we were working on, it was just a demo song that didn't get used in the end but it got stuck in my head so I bought it off him to use in my beer videos

Great video, you will love brewing with the Braumeister 20L. It takes time to get use to it, about 10 brews and then its pure enjoyment thereafter. :beer: :beer:
