Glitches. Usually I roll with it when the unexpected happens, but when glitch after glitch piles up and makes a crappy brewday, it sucks.

Funny how the more I drink, the more glitches there are. I may need to study this further.

Yea, the issues I have during a brew day directly correlate to the amount of beer I have consumed. Like at midnight, drunk and pouring 5 gallons of work out of my keggle though the top into a funnel in a glass car boy since my siphon had clogged.

All the cleaning of every mind numbing little thing. But even moreso,not being able to afford to do 2 batches at once every time. It'd be nice to have more beer available more consistently. And I wish the lhbs would have the type & brands of grains I use for the same price or close as midwest.

My last batch had glitches due to poor cleanup from the batch before where I was a little hammered during cleanup time.

it's the opposite with me. the more I drink the less problems I tend to run into.


as for my peeve, not as much time as I would like. and milling. I have been using a Corona mill with a 2# hopper & can't wait to get something better.

I hear you on that one. Everyone wants to be a home brewer but nobody wants to be a home brewer. I've spent a few lonely nights in the garage over my kettle after "something suddenly came up" with my friends who want to brew beer. Never a problem when the beer is ready to drink though.

The feeling of always looking at new brewing equipment and gadgets and justifying why I should buy or build them. My rig is good but can't seem to shake the constant search for an improvement or good deal. Pisses my wife off too.

Lets see, pet peeve . . . oh I have one - how fast I go through PBW and how expensive it is.
I would like to be able to afford to give beer away like that, money is just still a bit tight for us with this economy.

Cheers and nicely done Pappers
