The Sound of Fermenting Beer

Posted on Posted in Fermenting, Thoughts

These first few posts are a little scattered, as I am going back and writing on ales I have made last year, then bottled or kegged, and consumed.  I have some follow-on to the posting layouts, future plans, how-to’s, and recipes that are yet TBD.  This posting is in reference to a text exchange my wife and I had yesterday.  My humor trends on the dry side, and so when I can make myself laugh so hard my coworkers begin to stare, I figure its worth posting about.  I  have 3 different beers from very recent brew sessions in the fermenters I got with my brewing equipment.  My wife is gracious enough to allow them in the kitchen, and they do tend to take up some room.  The constant glug and gurgle of fermenting beer is soothing to me, and I like to listen to the activity knowing that I have provided an optimum environment for the yeast activity.

LIKE THE SOUND OF ANGELS SINGING FROM HEAVEN ABOVE!

Text conversation my wife and I were having about beer.

It apparently does not have the same effect on my wife, who I love dearly, but I couldn’t resist cracking a good one as the opportunity is just right.  I need to find a fermentation chamber, or some sort of temperature control, so that I can move this stuff out of our kitchen and into a more proper place, like the garage.  We have agreed on something, but as with everything, price and timing are critical.

Pretty sure posting this will cost me a brew day or two, but I feel it’s worth it…
