No Pants Brewing!
« on: September 11, 2010, 02:27:15 PM »
Alright Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury.  It is often referenced and repeated, may be replicated but never duplicated,  it's fun to say and... well...could be fun to do.  :-\

Anyway, let's all put our heads together and define this interesting method of brewing.

No Pants Brewing, or Brewing No Pants - a method of brewing.

Let's hear your perceptions???

I'm wearing shorts that are quite drafty in the crotch. Does this qualify?

I've always taken it to mean not following a "style", recognized recipe or established method.

Kind of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants approach, if you were to be wearing any that is. ;D

Yup, Kilts are the only attire that can be worn while brewing...the ONLY attire.

I'm here to settle this once and for all. I know you've seen these before, but this should pretty much clear it up. For me, it's not just attire, but also a mindset. My sig on here pretty much says it all. "A man works hard all week, so he doesn't have to wear pants all weekend."  i'm most comfortable when I am pantless. 99.9% of the time, when I am at home, I'm in boxers. Period, end of story. When you truly want to relax, the pants are out the window. And isn't that what brewing is about for most of us? Relaxation? So, if you ever spend brew day with me, you can rest assure I'm free-balling in my boxers, or kilt.  ;D


It applies to cooking as well as brewing.

Some may say TMI - I say, NEI!

Tell me more of your pantsless ways! What other activities may be enjoyed sans-trousers? Do you risk burns? What's your opinion on washing dishes prior to peeing in the sink?


...and I mean this all in the most heterosexual way possible. Which, I suppose, isn't very.

My pants come off as soon as possible when I get home, and the neighbors know to call before they come over for just that reason.  So anything I do in the evenings I generally do pantsless.  That includes taking the garbage to the curb, although I at least wait until after dark.  I've also been known to garden in my kilt, very comfortable.

As for risking burns, I was in my boxers boiling some starter wort on my heated stir-plate and shattered some glassware, got second degree burns on my leg.
