Post by: gymrat on April 07, 2013, 09:41:38 AM
Am I the only one who has a brewing wardrobe?

Only from the waist up.  Can we assume no pants?

I usually use bleach as a sanitizer (I work for the country's largest bleach marketer). So I need a shirt that'll take being splashed w/bleach solutions.  That said - a few shirts have been thrown out and now I have a few "brew day" shirts. :)

The best one is one that was "ruined" but then bleached until it became homogeneous.

I thought strange ingredients at first, brewing a tire?

My only hard and fast rule is no shoes so I can tell when I forgot to close the ball valve on my mash tun. Generally the brew day begins in pajama pants, then I usually end up getting dressed to grab food before the day is over.

Usually sweats.  I've got an awesome pair of orange sweat pants.  They even have pockets.

I usually use bleach as a sanitizer (I work for the country's largest bleach marketer). So I need a shirt that'll take being splashed w/bleach solutions. 

I have a couple lab coats I used to wear when I used bleach.  Felt like a total nerd.  Don't use bleach anymore, but sometimes I throw the lab coat on when I'm using the table saw.  Keeps me from being covered in saw dust.

I've always imagined Denny brewing (and most often existing) in a utilikilt.

Maybe he is trying to be a Beer Mentat...

It is by beer alone I set my mind in motion. It is by malting barley the grain acquires sugar, the boil kettles acquire wort, the wort becomes an elixir. It is by beer alone I set my mind in motion.

Of course the eye brows might be a problem in the brew house.   ;)

It was a nice day and my little brew garage gets pretty warm with 6 gallons of liquid boiling.

Despite your fantasy ;) I usually don't even wear shorts when brewing in warm weather.  I'm extremely clumsy and I've hurt myself way too many times.  I always wear long pants and closed shoes when I brew.  After the boil, when it's down to chilling, xfer, and cleanup, I'll put on shorts and Tevas if it's a warm day.

OK, I was completely unaware of the Utiliklit...Thanks Amazon! My wife may be ashamed and the neighbors may complain, but wow!, there may be one of those in my future.

Although I do have to agree that I, too typically wear pants when brewing...

Like Denny I always go with long pants and closed shoes, at least until the boil is done.  I need to be careful to wear enough clothes for the outside temp.  This spring I came down with a good cold a day after brewing, i think because it was pretty chilly outside and I was running around too much in a t-shirt and later in the day with damp shoes.

When I brew (normally a weekend) I love to wear old clothes I have no fear about tearing, staining or wearing out.

My thesis:

All of the MOST bad a$$ manly men throughout history, until very recently, wore skirts of one kind or another.

The scotts, the romans (and associated cultures), the pacific islanders, the list goes on and on.

But they didn't have zippers.  The invention of the zipper negates the need for the skirt.

Access is maintained and the fellas stay warmer.  Good all around.

Plus, I don't have to worry about any of my guests dragging their junk along my sofa.  At least, I don't think I have to worry about that.

Germans don't wear kilts because they don't make them long enough.

Fascinating discussion. To Kilt or not to kilt...well, summers coming (I think, man it's cold :o) and we'll see if the utilikilt makes it's way into my ward drobe.

Not yet, but after my 20F rainy first-ever all-grain day, waterproof shoes have made the list of requirements.

Kilts? I could get behind that....  ;D
