Default Do you name your fermenters?

I'm wondering...am I the ONLY one here who names their fermenters? I would LOVE to hear what you call your little buddies who help you make beer

I have four fermenter buckets and I call them Chuck-V, Viola, Crisco, and Herr Flick.

It makes it easier to remember what brew is in what fermenter if they have names, and it makes me feel less weird when I decide to have conversations with them and give them encouragement too. LOL

I call mine "this one" and "that one". They don't seem to mind.

"The one that needs cleaning", "The slightly melted bucket that I left too close to the burner", "The one with the spigot I never use"........Currently, The one that needs cleaning is not talking the one one with the spigot I never use. I think they fell out because I stacked one of them inside "Slut bucket" and got her pregnant. The one one with the spigot I never use can't get inside anyone as he has a spigot that gets in the way. I think it makes him grouchy.


Or, the short answer, NO I don't name my fooking fermenters!

Of course not. Naming them could lead to anthropomorphic personification. Which is a perfect indication of insanity.

Can't say if I've ever thought of naming them. But I do know people on the forum like to dress them up in T-shirts...
