Default Am I the only one?

M i the only one who does this, i go down to the basement and can just stare a the bubbling airlock for an hour, hypnotized by the gurgling and bubbling of the little yeasties working hard for no other reason then to produce my beer! Thanks yeasties!!!

Sometimes I smell the fumes blowing gently from atop the airlock while I watch in wonder as it bubbles. So no you're not the only one.

^This!

I just can't resist taking a whiff every time I pass by when my beer is fermenting. Smells SO good!

I need to invent an air freshener that smells of fermenting beer.
