Infections or Off flavors,

And cleaning, hate it.

Waiting isn't so bad if you brew enough to always have beer!

I would say cleaning up the mess after I make a batch ... but I live with it since it's a part of brewing life.

Having to buy beer because you floated your last keg, and you have nothing in the pipeline...

For me it is the wait until my next brewing opportunity. My schedule is so screwy I have to plan in advance when I will have a day I can spend devoted to brewing.

Having to clean and sanitize a bunch of crap just to do one simple task.

Today I need to clean and sanitize a bottling bucket, siphon tubing, rack my beer into the bottling bucket, clean the 5 gal carboy that the beer just came from, rack the beer back into the carboy.

All just to pitch my Brett.

I know I could get another carboy to alleviate this, but I just don't feel like it right now.

I'd go with bottling as my worst...

And that's why I went to kegging

However, now that I keg, I still bottle about 6-12 beers.. It doesn't seem nearly as bad when you're only doing a few, rather then doing all your beer...

Ya...definitely the waiting.

I live in the high arctic where there are no beer or liquor stores so when my supply of store bought runs out I have to rely on home brew...this is the exact situation I am in now.

Left the civilized world with 2 flats of Urquel 500ml cans on the 13 of January.

Started a batch of IPA on the 27 January.

Ran out of beer on the 2 February.

Because fermentation went for alot longer than I though, looks like I will not get a chance to bottle till the 12th or the 13th...then 10 more days to get some bubbles.
