Setting Carboy directly on ground not safe?
 
Has anyone else heard about the Earths ability to draw energy from an object that is in direct contact with the ground before? My local brew shop owner suggests placing your fermenters on wood planks or some other item in order to separate the fermenter from the ground. He claims that the earth naturally draws energy into itself and it will draw energy from anything in contact with the ground. The wood planks are to separate the fermenter and earth and this will keep your yeast safe and active during fermentation. Anyone else do this/hear about this before? Or is my brew store owner crazy?

Huh? I keep mine off the concrete floor in my basement because it's cold. Sounds like a bunch of spiritual mumbo jumbo to me.

Yeah. At a Grateful Dead show. From some guy named Crisper who was twirling glow in the dark sticks and wearing a Lizard costume. It was pretty cool. But I just kept walking.

Not actually crazy, but ...... aw shiat, yes, he actually does sound crazy.

Are you afraid of walking barefoot and having all your life energy sucked out through the bottom of your feet?
