I'm still amazed how comforting it is to have the bubbling of an airlock in the background!

Some people get little fountains or special alarm-clocks which make ocean wave sounds or whatever. Me, I have a carboy on the kitchen counter bubbling away most of the time.

I agree, there are moments when I just sit down and watch all my locks bubble like a proud papa

I like it to. Also a big bennie is when SWMBO starts saying "Did you fart" I can blame the Apfelwein or the lager ....

You know you are a brewer when you can't sleep without the reassuring blub-blub, blub-blub

I usually can't wait for the bubbling to slow down so I don't have to be paranoid all the time "what's the temp at? 10 minutes later, What's the temp at?"

I'm going to move to foil for my next batch, but I really am going to miss that sound.

I agree with you for once Evan! I don't use airlocks anymore, and I primary in blind buckets now too. It seems some of the sensualities of brewing have left me but I'm fine with it.
