Ha Ha! I'm sure it couldn't hurt anything. I saw that Mythbusters (one of my favorite shows). Try it sometime and let me know what happens. My carboy is in my closet, so like you, it would make me crazy, otherwise I'd probably give it a shot too.
Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA
