When a buddy of mine comes mid brew.

"What step of the process is this? Is this the mash? How much barley is that? Woww, the smell! Okay, so this is after the boil? Do you put the hops in now? So time frame? These hops look moldy. Can I touch this? When is the apricot one going to be ready? Okay, Im gonna watch basketball, where is your computer?"

Teach him? He's clearly interested.

Limitations: not enough space in my fermenting room (a spare bathroom) for all the fermenters I want to fill, not enough money for the equipment I want, not enough time in my schedule to brew when I want.

Oh, and moronic Alabama law, which peeve will hopefully be addressed this year.

He started making wine out of our inspiration...he knows, just fun to mess with. Throws me off from time to time, but we like to keep him around

Space-money limitations are getting to me. I want to graduate, get a job, and build a home bar and 1bbl brewery like I see on here! The DIY bar and brewery threads are not helping!

That was a fun night in my house when they basically cost me my dream job.
If ever there was a valid reason for justifiable homicide, this is it. Sounds like you need new (or no) roommates.

Mine is not having a dedicated space to brewing. This is the broad peave that brings me a lot of trouble throughout the day. Basically, I'm storing things all over the place at my house. Burner and gas go in the shed in the back, Brew pots go in the closet in the basement, cooler/mash tun goes in the attic. I really don't even mind the cleaning of everything, It just seems like I could walk to California and back all the treking I do getting stuff out and putting it away.

The fact that the USPS still has not located my temp controller that arrived at my local post office on Jan 14. Scanned in and disappeared. And to think. It made it all the way from China to within 3 miles of my house before disappearing. No wonder they are hurting...
