My one-year-old recently developed a fascination with the airlock on my fermenting rye pale ale. He has pulled it off the pail about 4-5 times now and spilled vodka everywhere. I'm not sure how much has gotten into the actual beer. There usually seems to be more on the lid than anywhere else, but this little dude is going to ruin the damn thing.
I suppose I should take comfort that he is taking an interest in beer. I guess we'll just have to work on the proper care of fermentation as he gets older.
I assume others have run into the same problem: little ones who just can't keep their hands off the bubbling airlock or other fun, beer-making "toys."
