Is it just me?

Or do air locks remind anybody else of coffee percolators?

Now that you mention it...

I can stare at an airlock for hours.  It's like watching a camp fire.

I was thinking of making a looping video of an airlock bubbling and watching it on christmas in place of the yule log.

Awesome idea !  A bubbling airlock is always a happy sight for a homebrewer.

Yes, it's just you.

For me it's the churning chunks in the carboy that I could watch.  And my fish tank.

+1 I love watching a yeast chunk as it's falling and spewing CO2.

I enjoy watching the airlock for awhile but I wish someone would make a screensaver that is a carboy during fermentation. Watching everything moving around is very interesting to me.
