Default BrewShoes and other Beer Day Rituals

I am not one for superstition or rituals usually, however when it comes to brewdays, i must have on my old pair of slippers for the day to feel right. For some, reason they make me feel good as I am brewing and have become a part of my brewday,

When I get home today, the BREWSHOES ARE GOIN ON BABY!

What "BrewShoes" do you fellow homebrewers have? What rituals do you have, what special clothing do you put on, supersitions, routines, etc... anything! GIVE IT UP!

Ha! I wear my dear foam slippers while in the kitchen brewing. This made me think of the song "bbq shoes" used on bbq pit boys show. That,& one of my tuner guy tee shirts,typically. Always more comfortable that way. One more trip to the LHBS for a large ale pale,some more hops,& trade my vinator for one that actually works. Then 2 brew days comin up! It'll be nice to get where I can brew two at once. Got plenty of bottles saved for,maybe,3 batches.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I brew bare foot! In the winter I do use slippers when I'm in the garage. Easy to get on and off when running back inside for a beer.

I typically jam the Holy Diver cover by Killswitch Engage as loud as I can. I think it was just a song my brew buddy and I were diggin when we first started brewing. We had a few too many the night before brew day and waking up in time to start brewing was horrible lol. I needed some music to get us going. That was the perfect track.

I'd be way too scared to drop something heavy, glass or hot on my feet to ever brew barefoot or even in slippers/flipflops.

My only brew day ritual is to drink beer and force all visitors/assistants to do the same. But I think that's nothing out of the ordinary.

That's another one I forgot. When I/we're done brewing & setting up the fermenter,I clean everything up. Then we sit down at the comp with some HB's & videos.

This is funny. My brew buddy and I talk about this all the time. Neither one of us feels right brewing unless we are wearing our Croc's. Not usually superstitious, but the one brew day, a year or so ago, I didn't wear them, turned out really crappy. So now Croc's are "required" brew day attire. But in reality, they are just comfortable and it doesn't matter if they get wet, which when cleaning they always do! I also have to have Pandora on, tuned into an all hair bands station.

never really played any music on but im having a bunch of people over tonight to bbq for my brewday and will probably have to. dragonforce FTW!

i also forgot that i must have everything absolutely organized in a chronilogical order of need throughout the brewing process. makes life easy as pie.
