I've heard of this happening, but didn't believe it happened. We moved into an apartment in the new city we're in until we find a permanent place, on with an open basement for a brewery/bar of course. While brewing my Irish Red I had a knock at the door...the cops had been called because a neighbor "smelled a funny odor"...this just happened to be after my first hop addition. After 30 minutes of showing them the boil, the cleaned out mash tun, the hops and swearing upon a stack of brewing books I wasn't smoking pot they left...I'm making an IPA next weekend just to see if they'll call the cops again! Had I been arrested this would have been not so funny...but since I'm off the hook and have my beer almost finished this is awesome!!!!!
