When you wake up from a dream where you taste tested your latest batch. It tasted -- nightmarishly -- bland, like soda.

That's me. I can't just sit and enjoy a beer anymore without thinking about how I would go about brewing something similar, so I've started looking at it as research.

I bottled a batch a while back and didn't have any star san so I soaked the bottles in bleach water. One of the guys helping me bottle didn't rinse all the bottles properly so some of them ended up with a nasty chlorphenol taste. Since then, I've had "nightmares" where I pop open a bottle and smell band-aids - and then proceed to pour and drink it and taste band-aids - and then I can't get rid of the awful taste but I can't wake up... AAAAH!!

You switch from coffee to tea just so you can steep on a daily basis.

when you no longer make coffee, you "sparge the grounds".
