Greetings All!

I know I'm still new at this...but I am freekin' mesmerized and nearly hypnotized by the bubbling air-lock! My wife is worried that she can no longer lure me away with her feminine wiles!

Who's guilty? Confess and you shall be free!

Whoops! I spelled guilty wrong. One day I'll learn how to type and drink at the same time...

I'll admit it, as long as you admit that you've also sniffed the airlock.

C'mon, I know you have.

I'm also guilty of staring at the yeast blizzard going on in my carboy as well.

I have a very hoppy American IPA going in my primary currently - you bet your biffy I have been sniffing that airlock! Wonderful hop aroma is being painfully drained out of my IPA...

I use the triple ripple airlocks because I enjoy the action of them more than the three piece airlocks.

I'm not ashamed to admit I sniff it as well.

I'm half tempted at times to drink the vodka from it after racking off the beer.
