9 Batches under my belt, I by no way am crazy about sanitizing, I do it but I don't over do it and not a single infection yet.

12 batches an not a single infection.

Quite frankly I just don't worry about it. I just do basic sanitizing steps (good ole Star San) and just make beer. It takes really bad luck or carelessness to end up with infection. Just imagine the people brewing beer thousands of years ago. Do you believe for a second they had Star San or bleach or whatever available to them? Nope. You can bet that had infection been a signficant problem that brewing would have been quickly ignored.

Its all good.

Still a newbie, no infections so far. (~10 batches)
I understand though that you should not grind grain where you brew(?)

But I don't see any reason that an infection is inevitable.
