i am SO PARANOID about sanitation. it's a love/hate thing i guess.
i kinda wanna step up to 10 gallon batches, but then i read the size/scope of the equipment required and said forget it. (but i still yearn to go big, lol)

My New Pet Peeve is,

Not having a brew stand setup yet, AG full boils on the stove are a pain in the arse.

Soon I will build it, then all will be right with the world, at least my brewing world.

Cheers

For me, it's trying to do it out here in BFE. Went to Wal-Mart last night. No Oxy Clean to clean empty bottles with. No paint strainer bags to do BIAB with. Only 5 gallon round coolers, and only 1 rectangular one with a spout on the side. Nearest Lowe's is an hour away. Nearest HD is 2.

The cost of never-ending upgrades and the amount of room required to store and condition hundreds of bottles.

I hate that I don't have the space or bank account to brew 50 gallon batches!

My biggest pet peeve is that I haven't met or seen any other female brewers. I know that brewing, and even liking beer, is kind of a boy's club but I get soooo pissed at dumb BMC drinking dudes who think they know more about beer just because I have boobs.
