My cat the other night somehow got locked in my fermentation room with 2 - 5 gallon batches... She lived but was hungry the next morning when I found her!

I had an CO2-related incident when I worked in a lab a few years back. We had a large freezer for dry ice. I was working by myself at night. I put on gloves and reached into the freezer to grab a few pieces of ice at the very bottom of the freezer. My feet were almost off the floor. Of course the freezer was completely filled with CO2 vapors. I instinctively took a deep breath while I was in there and started to black out. Luckily I pulled myself out before I did. I could have easily suffocated.

It would have been an embarassing way to die. They would have found me Monday morning with my feet sticking out of the top of the freezer. Knowing my boss he would have bitched about all the dry ice that I let evaporate.

Ok, thanks for clearing that up for all us parrot owners, now the next question to consider is:

How do we know if the airlock has started/stopped bubbling or if it's just the parrot?

OK. I don't quite get why it has taken 8 pages to do what I could do with two letters.

No

So if you put the parrot in a sealed room with the fermenting beer, the parrot is both alive and dead until you open the door?

Ok, anyone who has a parrot and brews has to teach it to say "I don't want to go on the cart"
