Default If you had to HATE one thing about Homebrewing...

Sanitization!

I decided around 8:00 pm last night to bottle my latest brew - it was close to 1:00 am when I was done and cleaned up... We all know the majority of this time was spent sanitizing the bottles! Absolutely hate it! (but love it).

What's your homebrew pet peeve?

The waiting is the hardest part.

I don't mind sanitizing as much as cleaning.

That's a LONG time for bottling a batch of beer! How many gallons was it? It takes me 2 hours at the most for 5.5 gallons, and that includes washing and sanitizing bottles!

If I HATE one thing, it's clean-up!

It was a 5 gallon batch... Let's just say I was very anal about sanitizing and had to give some time for my priming sugar solution to cool down (that probably took up a chunk of it). Also bottling alone is kinda tricky, and apparently VERY messy!

dr sanch... get yourself a Vinator. It makes sanitizing bottles super fast, and easy! It's one of the best gadgets I ever purchased!

You just gave me something to do on my lunch break tomorrow. Vinator it is! (and yes, I'm impulsive like that)

Actually I kind of like the cleaning/sanitizing. It reminds me of back when I worked as a dish washer in a restaurant: I could just turn off my mind and let my muscles go as I scrubbed pots, pans and silverware. It was a very relaxing time.

What I'm not a big fan of is having to remember to swap out the ice in my ferm chamber regularly, especially since I live in the Arizona desert.
