I was matching MythBusters, and they did an experiment to see if talking to plants or playing music made any difference in their growth. It turns out the peas with music grew best (heavy metal peas grew the best, strangely).

So, my thoughts on the subject came to yeast. I wonder if playing music for fermenting beer might improve its performance or quality of finished product.

I'd try it, but my fermenter sits next to my bed, so it would drive me up a wall. Some day, I'll have a batch that's totally pumped up on Industrial.

Just something I thought I'd throw out there.

Ha Ha! I'm sure it couldn't hurt anything. I saw that Mythbusters (one of my favorite shows). Try it sometime and let me know what happens. My carboy is in my closet, so like you, it would make me crazy, otherwise I'd probably give it a shot too.
Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA
