    I like the random thoughts thread, I like the brewing forum (and everyone likes gifs) so:

    I don't know why I've never mixed Nelson and Mosaic together before, but it's money.

    Why haven't I made a Saison with Nelson Sauvin and called it Nelson Saison yet?

    Why haven't I ever used my food saver for anything but hops?

    Why do I always forget the whirlfloc?

    ...also, I'm never brewing anything in the summer except saison ever again. Super serious.

    Why does my side yard, offer zero shade? I should probably invest in a giant tent

    Why can't I get a vacuum cleaner that only removes hop matter and sediment?

    Why don't I brew a beer at the end of the month with all the left over ingredients laying around and call it, what a man is finding. Nietzsche please.

    Reported, you don't brew for Turtleback Ridge. This is copyright infringement.


    We usually call it Frankenbrew.

    Why did it take me so long to stop making beers I can buy for $8/sixer and start making sours that would set me back $10-$20 per bottle?

    Why is the wind calm until the very moment I fire up the burner to brew?

    Gotta have that windshield.

    I started doing mixed ferment saison by my 10th brew. I've been 'saving' tons of money ever since...

    I think like a lot of people the thought of moving to sours was initially intimidating. However, they're easy and fun, although they do require a bit more patience. Now I embrace the fact that all of my gear is "tainted" by lacto/pedio/brett etc.

    Unless you suck at sanitation, your gear should be clean. I still make IPAs, lagers, and whatever with just sacc using all the same gear.

    I'd like to think that's not the case. Everything still gets pbw and sanitized as usual. Aside from sours mostly into saisons, farmhouse, etc. I don't think there would be an issue with some lacto or brett sneaking in.
