I've been homebrewing for about three months now, and I suppose it was bound to happen at some point or another, but . . .

Last night I dreamed that I was siphoning my latest APA to the priming and bottling bucket and EVERYTHING was going badly . . .

No matter what I did, I could not siphon "quietly" . . . and the beer was foaming furiously . . .

Not only that, but the tubing and bucket started filling with sediment . . .

There was something else that I can't remember, but suffice it to say, I remember it involved a spill and my unsanitized hands going places they should not have . . .



This ever happen to anyone else?

you need some serious meds!

Never dreamt about beer mishaps, but in the height of tax season while working 12-14 hour days I have had some weird nightmares about the US tax code!

I actually had a beer-mare the other night! I was bottling and none of them would seal. I'd clamp down my capper and, when I took it off, there was foam spraying everywhere. This happened to bottle after bottle with cap after cap...
I wasn't even bottling that day. I have no idea what stressed me out enough to dream about that.

I had a real life nightmare!
my first all-grain IPA was fermenting perfectly, when all of a sudden, the spigot threads broke and 6 gallons spilled all over my room! It warped my floor, molded my carpet, and of course was a huge waste! I JUST finished renovating my room from that explosion.
Watch your buckets!

My girlfriend recorded me talking about brewing and philosophy. It was somewhere along the lines of mashing in at a certain temperature and then talking about pragmatic thoughts on different mashing temperatures. Really weird stuff.

Unfortunately your nightmare is very real to some of us. If some of our misfortunes are what you can only dream of, can you imagine what our nightmares are like?

That is really funny because I know if I have a brew going, I wake up thinking about those kinds of things. It would not surprise me if I talk about such things in my sleep because they are obviously fresh on my mind when I wake up in the morning, hahaha.
