Default What your pet peeve about Brewing

I would like to say its the washing and cleaning up everything after brewing, but then I think that isn't really it.

My pet peeve is, now that Im making good beer, I just can't afford to give some to everyone to enjoy.

Whats your pet peeve ?

Cheers

Good/Great beer takes time! if you want a quick beer go to the store or bar!

Bottling. Not really sure why either. The truth is, it usually doesn't take too long. I think it's the tedium of it.

Delabeling and cleaning bottles. I like having them in bottles, but its tedious. And of course cleaning/sanitizing equipment for brewing/racking/bottling. Its all worth it when you have the first finished product of the batch though.

Beersmith. For me that thing crashes more than Billy Joel.

Leaking kegs. I just refilled my CO2, and put it in the garage to carbonate one new batch. A week later my task is empty and my beer is flat. This seems to happen when I'm least expecting it.

Best answer. All others are, well, secondary.

Secondary answer: "beginner" brew kits rarely include kettles. You START with a kettle, dang it. Plastic buckets and tubing you can get anywhere.

I give away so much beer. For New Year's, I'm putting together four-packs - for eighteen people! That's three cases of beer, if my math is right.

But its not a pet peeve, I like giving my beer away.

Lets see, pet peeve . . . oh I have one - how fast I go through PBW and how expensive it is.
