Default This doesn't look wrong at all.

I had to laugh as I was weighing out my hops and mash salts. If someone happened to walk by who didn't know about homebrewing...

Be better (or worse) if you were using leaf hops.

Wonder if drug smugglers have ever thought about pelletizing marijuana? Seems like it would take up less space.

LOL. A buddy of mine had the cops show up at his while he was sitting at a table in his front window measuring out a shrink wrapping hops from a massive order he did. One of the neighbors across the street who didn't like him any way made the call.

The funny thing is my buddy is a Police Dispatcher, and everyone in his department knows he brews. So the cops had a fun time showing up at his door when they got the call.

Now maybe im just a vindictive person but it would seem an unwise move to piss off the neighbor if he works at the police dept.

Guinea pig steroid doping. It's a serious problem.

I went to Walmart to buy a scale for brewing, and needed aluminum foil and small plastic bags. They gave me an odd look when I was at the U-Scan buying only those items, then I looked at what I was buying together and realized why.

i had our local county meth task force show up on a brew day this summer. these guys dont come up and knock on your door. i turned and saw a black fatigued officer with what looked like a "k" version of an AR-15.

after i was allowed to get off the ground him and his 4 comrads inspected my home and subsequently left while giving me a clean bill of health and i they a basic knowledge of homebrewing.

now, about the asshole across the commons that thought i was cooking dope.....

My wife is really into gardening so come March she sets up lights and starts flowers for the summer gardens. Between that and the hops in the freezer and my yeast starters, people probably think we grow some mad bud and cook up a bit of meth on the side.
