Because I'm a lazy homebrewer
I want my cleaning chores to be fewer.
I could just grab my drill
And let that Carboy Cleaner whirl,
So all my old carboys look newer.

Don't be a troll about it.

Default Why I need a carboy cleaner

This is my first post. On any brewing site. I have a filthy carboy and a fermenter and a few dozen bottles and some hoses and a capper-doohikey and I don't know what else on a shelf next to me while I write this. All because a friend had to move, and I said I might like to try this brewing "thing."

You see, I've never done it. Brewing, I mean. I want to try, I mean I will try. I'll make my first batch. Over the holidays. I'll pretend to catch the flu, send the wife off to make apologies to some party or another and really really try it.

It will be good. No. It'll be great. It will be fantastic! Hoppy and smooth and full of flavors. Maybe an ale. Or a porter. Or a stout. Yeah - I like stouts! How hard could they be? I'll go down to that brewing store I've been sneaking off to. It's on the way to work and the guys there seem so cool. I'm sure they'd be helpful if I'd just ask a question. I probably need some yeast or something. Then, I'll be all set! YES!


First thing. I need to clean that carboy.

Default Carboy cleaner

I will give you a squawvalley lift ticket for one in lake tahoe, although the guy who claims to be sixty and brewing with old gear seems deserving.

I want a carboy cleaner because anything that makes brewdays easier is a thumbs up in my book.

While trying to clean my carboy after its last fermentation, there was a tragic accident. A slight slip on the wet brush handle was all it took for me to get a metal splinter in my hand from the brush handle. The pain was incredible, enough to make me almost black out, as i raced to the hospital. I fully came back to my sences just in time to swerve, but alas i was to late and could not miss the family of chipmunks that was crossing the road. With a sad heart i realized that only a carboy cleaner could have averted this disaster and ensure the safety of future chipmunk families. Well that and it will make my job alot easier.

Disclaimer: No actual chipmunks were harmed in the making of this story.

I'm sorry but I can't think of anything clever to post. I will return to my old habits and listen to my 4 year old daughter sing some silly songs while she dances around as she helps me clean.

Please choose me for my sanity, the safety of my equipment and the sanity of my beers! ;-)
