Default Beer Voyeurism

I brought this up no too long ago, I have a four cell Mag size D flashlight and like to watch my glass carboys. Is that make me a weriod, or do more people do this too? LOL

I ferment in buckets so I can't see what's going on. The only time I pay attention to my fermenters is when they are blowing off. I had a friend brew with me once though and his blow off tube clogged. Blew the bucket lid off. I siphoned a gallon from it into a glass jug and put a new lid on to stop the blow off. It was pretty cool watching the beer in the glass jug. It was churning like crazy.

It is quite hypnotic.

I often find myself in the basement sniffing the burps coming out of the airlock, especially on hoppier brews.

Yep, I do it so often that my 2 1/2 year old daughter even likes to use the flashlight to look at the carboy.

Guilty... Of watching and sniffing... Several times a day, every day. It's fascinating, especially when the thing is churning

I have an extremely bright LED light that i use to monitor my carboys.......

I like to take my time... you know, take my carboy out to dinner, have some drinks... some laughs... then we can cuddle up by the fireplace, put on some slow music, and then i stare deeply into its wort.....

There is absolutely nothing wrong with carboyeurism. It is one of the neatest science experiments you can do and with real benefits!
