I have joined the very exclusive group of brewers.
« 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

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.
Today is a good day; to learn, to do, to love, to be...
