Default Brewing and drinking

So for the first time in my life, I've currently drinking some of my own beer while I brew another batch. This is pretty damn exciting for me.

+1 Indeed, I think that's the best part.

drinking while brewing tends to make cleaning up a b*tch

Drinking while you brew is a good way to cause an accident. I don't recommend it.

drinking too much while brewing, is dangerous. i say feel free to have a couple beers -- and some moderation and responsibility -- while brewing.

one of my favorite parts of brew day is enjoying one of my beers while making more.

Drinking while brewing is a great way to get friends to help, especially when bottling. One time in University I actually ran short of bottles and had to have my friends drink a few aged ones to free up some bottles.

I sure had a pipeline then, usually a minimum of 10 cases bottled and four or five batches in various stages of fermentation.

I get pretty flustered and impatient when I'm waiting for something to happen when I'm brewing and like today I literally left the kitchen for maybe 30 seconds total in 5 hours of brewing. So cracking a beer (homebrew or otherwise) helps to ease my mind.

I always keep a nice 2.8% Ordinary Bitters on tap to sip on during brew day. Tough to smell that malted barley boiling away and not want to wet the whistle with a finished product.

Once the beer is in the fermenters...then I'll slide down a few taps and draw a nice Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale.
