Default My Fermentation 'closet'



The only free room we had was SWMBO's shower. She can use mine

We live in a condo with 2.5 baths, so we have one other full bathroom with tub/shower that we use (my bathroom). I don't have room anywhere else in the house to put all of this stuff, and incase I get any leaks or bottle bombs, it goes down the drain

Did your duckies help brew your beer?

I've been brewing over 13 years and never had one of those problems...hmmm...

Looking at your pic I'd like to offer you a bit of advice...if you got a piece of plywood and put it over the tub you'd have a larger surface area for storage.

For anticipated "drainage" you could drill a couple of holes...

homebrewer99, I haven't either, and I'm not anticipating it, but I have nothing to worry about it if it does happen. I wish I had a spare bedroom or even a spare corner of a room I could put everything in, but this truly is the only spare area in our house that will fit everything.

and yeah, good ole popov for the airlocks. Smells like jet fuel though.
