I work from home and keep my home brewing supplies in my office. I have two fermentation buckets, two carboys, and one bottling bucket. I have both carboys with stuff in them, 1 fermentation bucket filled, and then an empty one 10 feet from me. Right now, my budget is done for January for brewing, but drives me nuts having an empty fermenter, i should hide it

Anyone else have those issues?

All my fermenters are empty .

Moving to Germany at the end of the month so my (2) 6.5 gallon carboy, (1) 6 gallon, (2) 5 gallon, and my 1 bucket are empty...I also have a empty spot in the kegerator. Only 2 of my 6 kegs are filled...I can't wait to get over there and knock out some beers. Up first a quad, RIS and sour. After they move to secondary ill pump out a mild,xxx, and a IPA.

All of mine are empty as well.

Moving, hopefully today. I plan to get a starter going tonight and brew this weekend.

Luckily I do have 3.5 kegs and 4 cases to get me by while I wait for my pipeline to get re-established

All of mine are empty as I just kegged a bunch of beers. Sadly they will remain empty for awhile as our second kid is getting close to due and I have this nightmare that I'll just be getting a boil underway when the wife comes downstairs telling me she's in labor.
