When I'm absent I leave my computer monitor on with lots of craft beer and home brew photos randomly showing.
The carboy must like them as I usually find foam all over my keyboard when I return.

Well, I must be doing it all wrong; I usually leave my carboy in a dark cold box with a tube jammed in it for a couple of weeks. I then move it to another dark cold box full of ice cold water while mumbling about how I'm going to drain it of all its fluids in the near future.

Oddly enough the yeast seems to actually get off on it.

I've been playing a lot of Blind Guardian and Demons & Wizards by my beer. I hope the power metal helps inspire the yeast.

I also play a lot of guitar to the yeast. Hopefully headbanging yeast make better beer.

Now would be a good time to ban posting of youtube videos on this forum.

I played just Wagner to one batch and just Satie to another batch. It wasn't a scientific experiment. One was a pale ale and the other was a dark mild, but I'll let you know how they turn out.

I will let you know.
