Default How homebrewing has affected real life.

I was in my office break room and made a cup of tea. After dipping the tea bag I squeezed it, then I got concerned that I may have added additional tannins to my cup.

I'm sure stuff like this happens to others as well.

I have one of those plastic, one cup coffee filter holders and I take great care to properly sparge my ground coffee in the morning.

On the way to work yesterday I heard a commercial that went something like " This Christmas don't forget the poor." For some reason I heard " This Christmas don't forget the pour."

If you drink tea, you should have known squeezing the bag was bad BEFORE you started brewing.

Anyone else always eyeing the water cooler carboy at work?

I hate it when my T-bag gets squeezed.

As I walk around the office, I notice different furniture and equipment that might be appropriate to build a brew stand/equipment out of.

There's a lab at my med school with about 20 stirplate/heatplates that NEVER get used...I am always eyeing them, oh the temptation. They also have a ton of unused erlenmeyer flasks too....what a waste. Laboratories in academia are full of brewing things. Their cup runneth over.

I precisely measure my coffee grounds each morning and monitor the grind to ensure it has exactly the same OG every morning. If not, I get pissed and pour it out and call it a bad batch.








Not really, I use starsan for other sanitation. For a while I would look at objects everywhere and see how they could be used for brewing.
