I completely understand this. I volunteer for a local small brewing company and was seriously able to cancel my gym membership. Crawling in, under, around, over, and through fermenters, mash tuns, grates, silos, mills. Think cleaning at home is a pain, try doing it on a commercial scale. Hard work but awesome work.

Yeah, I would be the worst dad in the class.

I think I could talk my wife into it if I let her pick the ingredients once in a while... and maybe even do the bottling on top of the dishwasher door like Revvy suggests. Right now I need to mop my garage floor as I have priming sugar and spilt beer from racking on the floor of the garage. I need to lean out my process, thats for sure.
I should have read the whole thread before my last post. I got a phone call from my oldest daughters Health teacher a few years ago with concerns of how much she knew about beer, my daughter had told me what happened in school so when I talked to the teacher I simply explained that I was a home brewer and that she has helped me make several batches and how she was concerned that his information was wrong and if he was going to discuss it in his class that he should have his facts straight.

This hobby might not be for lazy people.
You've got to be President to pull that off.

Zuljin you work in a brewery? I was pretty sure you were some sort of mad scientist researching DNA. Wow, hate it when I'm wrong.

No. Just in a place with rubber boots, hoses, shovels, a canoe paddle (a nasty, nasty canoe paddle) tanks, mixers, pumps, equipment, microscopes and microorganisms.

It's akin to brewing though. Have to maintain the right environment for the right bugs to do the right things.

Screw a maid though. I don't need anybody snooping around.

I feel like that post should be on the Riddle Thread.

My next query would be to ask if you work in a dairy?

I stayed a week on one when I was a kid. Got to ride a cow. Got to do farm work too. It is not for lazy people. So, no, I don't work on a dairy.

Where do you work? Curious minds want to know.
