Is anyone here superstitious about their brewing days? Do you have a certain band you have to listen to while brewing or be wearing a lucky shirt? I only ask because when I brewed with my buddy we had to listen to System of a down and somehow when we didnt something would go wrong. Im getting my own equipment and part of that list is a couple of SOAD cds. am i crazy or are there more of us superstitious brewers out there? whats your particular superstition

I think your crazy.

J/k
But I do think that some music makes people concentrate more or feel a certain way. It might be that you both concentrate more because of the music. maybe a more mild type of music makes you not think or concetnrate as much?

I know my brother couldn't do his homework unless he had some heavy metal going. it was so busy he had to really pay attention to what he was reading or writing.

I always brew with my Milwaukee Brewers hat on...think of it as a combination good luck charm/hairnet.

I usually wear the same t-shirt and pair of jeans every time I brew, but this is not because of superstition. That outfit is f*cking stained like crazy and I'd like to avoid ruining any other clothing.

That's the main reason that I wear my ugly yellow sweatshirt.

Yup. My t-shirt is an ugly brown, but I vaguely remember it being white at one time.
