Default Lessons Learned... Don't inhale!!

I opened my chest freezer yesterday to check on my vigorously fermenting Breakfast Stout clone. Well I leaned in too far and inhaled and I got a rush of off-gasses from the blow-off tube container. I felt like I inhaled acid and it was burning my sinuses and it really hurt like heck!! Of course my wife just laughed her *ss off.

The lesson here? Be smarter than me and don't inhale while your head is in a gas filled chest freezer...

I just had to share.

hah, it's a lesson everyone who uses a chest freezer as a fermentation chamber must learn on their own.

Huffing carbon dioxide is never fun unless you're a plant based life form

I was going to clean a fermenter for the first time and got a big whiff of co2...about fell off the ladder I was on.

That stuff is no joke, let it vent and even then be careful because it lingers for quite a while.
