I'm I the ONLY one here who names their fermenters? I would LOVE to hear what you call your little buddies who help you make beer

I have four fermenter buckets and I call them Chuck-V, Viola, Crisco, and Herr Flick.

It makes it easier to remember what brew is in what fermenter if they have names, and it makes me feel less weird when I decide to have conversations with them and give them encouragement too. LOL
Two weeks to ferment, two more in the kegs
but in just one night it was drained to the dregs

I call mine "this one" and "that one". They don't seem to mind.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

"The one that needs cleaning", "The slightly melted bucket that I left too close to the burner", "The one with the spigot I never use"........Currently, The one that needs cleaning is not talking the one one with the spigot I never use. I think they fell out because I stacked one of them inside "Slut bucket" and got her pregnant. The one one with the spigot I never use can't get inside anyone as he has a spigot that gets in the way. I think it makes him grouchy.

Or, the short answer, NO I don't name my fooking fermenters!

Of course not. Naming them could lead to anthropomorphic personification. Which is a perfect indication of insanity.

Can't say if I've ever thought of naming them. But I do know people on the forum like to dress them up in T-shirts...
