Title: I have joined the very exclusive group of brewers.
Post by: rabid_dingo on January 29, 2011, 05:46:58 PM
So I called my wife at work, this is how it went...

"Start thinking of colors you want in the main floor sitting area. I'd like to get that painted soon..."

"I'd like to get the boys room painted first."

I said. Ok we'll live with the beer stains for a while...

...(two long pauses) I think I heard a sigh.


What did you do?

This:

The trub/wort hit 5 separate walls and that includes 3 areas on the ceiling separated by the beams.

Sprayed down a bathroom with a hefeweizen one time. Not funny then but now? FUNNY. ;D

Looking at the beams you must live in a round house?

Nice work!

I still have hops crusted to the ceiling of my basement.  Thank goodness it was unfinished (and still is for obvious reasons...)

You know you're a home brewer if you've ever used a mop on a ceiling.

Fellow in our club did the same this past week.  He wrote that it's not fun rigging a blow-off tube at 1:30 AM, when you are half asleep...

I have rye stout stains on my (blessedly unfinished) basement ceiling.

If the stout doesn't wash off, there are high hiding primers on the market made to permanently cover difficult stains.

Octagon...funny thing is I rarely consider the shape. It's home.

Try a RIS exploding out of the "Mr Beer" keg on the top shelf in the coat closet.

I spent the good part of a weekend afternoon repeatedly rinsing out the full-length cashmere dress coat and its pockets which caught a significant % of the beer.  Needless to say, the rest of the coat closet was collaterally damaged.  Massive darkly-colored spewage everywhere.

I cleaned up the coat closet as best as I could.  Not perfect, but, I sold the house recently, so it's not my problem anymore!  ;D

LOL, "If any of the beers you have brewed included a substantial 'Dry Cleaning' bill....you might be a home brewer"
