Default Lazy?

Is it bad that I have a batch of beer but am too lazy bottle it? If I don't I will have to buy beer some time next week cause I'll be almost out of homebrew

Probably ought to bottle.

I'm lazy when it comes to bottling too.

My beer sure doesn't carb up in a week though.....

I said I'd be almost out
Yeah I might push it a little but my week and a half old beer tastes better than most that I can get at the store Wich is mostly BMC.

As my life has gotten busier, my beers have benefited, because all of them stay in primary for a minimum of 3 weeks now since I'm too tired/lazy to bottle after work. In reality, I can manage the whole process in a little over an hour, including sanitizing bottles, but something about it is very daunting. 3 carboys are currently just waiting to be bottled...

This. If I had bottled my first batch or two of beer, I would have been out of the hobby quick.
