Well I was pretty excited to make my brew but those f'ers didnt send me any sanitizer!!!! I could not wait so I peed in a bucked and washed my equipment with it. I think things went pretty well. Has anyone every used this method? By my calculations it should work ok. Cheers... :mug:

It would certainly be cheaper than the commercial sanitizers. Plus all homebrewers have the fantastic ability to turn our homebrew into urine. It only makes sense that this would work... it's the circle of life.

Healthy urine is sterile, however what it passes through on the way out… probably not.

Hope it doesn’t leave an off-flavor.

Use chlorine next time. Boil some water for rinsing.

You are supposed to GIVE the brewing gifts out, not keep them. Or, are you just running quality tests to make sure the brew kiddies don't hurt themselves?

I do a lot of hording. Just last year you were going to get a new fermenter, but then you did "that thing" and so you got bumped to the bad list and I kept the fermenter.

You're right. Last year I did ask for a 20 gallon steam-heated RIMS with internal glycol cooling, but all I got was a broken hydrometer!

Here I am painting my house and I miss all of this fun!



The forum has been a bit strange these days...

:drunk:


At least this was posted in an appropriate place and not cross posted or posted in regards to putting out a "hop fire".

Ok all, Its several months later. The beet tasted fine! I have only 3 left as a matter of fact. I have since invested in a sanitizer, but if it doesnt work, i'm going back au natural.

One thing to note: while the urine in your bladder is probably sterile (assuming your healthy), your... (searching for appropriate word)... outflow hole likely is not. If you or anyone else ever has the nightmarish compulsion to try this again, it'd probably be a good idea to swab the "exit valve" with some rubbing alcohol. Oh yeah, and wash your hands, please.

Kudos to your bravery, and :mug: to a good brew.
