So, I was watching Dirty Jobs a few weeks ago and Mike Rowe and the crew was at Coastal Extreme Brewing Co. They mentioned the unwritten law that while someone brews beer they must drink beer. They mentioned what the law was called, but I can't find it anywhere.
Does anyone know what this "law" is called? And no, it isn't RDWHAHB

It's just one of those "unwritten" laws that make the brew day less nerve wracking. Since the beer partially wrecks your nerves,lol.

I've found myself almost eliminating drinking while brewing. Far to often i ended up socializing and not paying attention.

From another thread. This one made me think of it.

I could be wrong but I believe the official law is titled: "Those who brew should sip a brew while brewing or be at the risk of angering the beer Gods and be cursed for the rest of their brew days by making bad beer and never making a good beer again for the next 3 generations of brewers in their family." But dont quote me.

My law is: "If the burner is lit, so shall I be."

Another rule is to always mash high.
