Who doesn't like the smell of coffee? Even the non coffee drinkers I know like the smell of it. That and a fresh jar of good quality peanut butter are two of the best food related smells I can think of. Btw, hurrah for Larry's Beans.

Homebrewing is at the top of the list as well.

Yup! I'm sipping on a homebrewed black IPA right now, and moving a huge stout into the secondary for a couple more months od fermentation. My kitchen smells amazing.

I never trusted anything to be in the secondary that long. If it was a big beer, I'd let it bottle condition for a month or two. Too much chance of infection leaving it basically inactive in the secondary that long - <--- my way of thinking.

Key word: inactive.

I brew a little of everything, but I do stouts really well. A couple of my favorites have an OG in the 1.080 and above category. These tend to drop to about 1.030 rather quickly with a good yeast starter, then they take months to finish off. The particular one I have going tends to finish at 1.010 if I leave it in the secondary for a while. The first time I did it, I bottled it too early and it just didn't taste finished. These tend to not be as susceptible to infection for some reason.

Most of the time though, I don't even do a secondary. I'm all about leaving things in the primary until kegging. The keg will blow off any sediment in the first few glasses, so there is mostly no reason for a seondary unless it is a huge beer.

We need to get together and drink beer. If I still bottled, I'd bring you a few at the ADV dinner on the 25th, but I really don't even mess with bottles anymore.

Agreed. I typically bottled/kegged when activity dropped to zero and SG reached terminal. I don't recall it ever taking more than a week or 10 days in the secondary for me.

I'd have to go back through my notes. May be that I never did anything with a OG that high. And I never lagered.

Guess I always racked to a secondary in the name of clarity - even after I started kegging. I haven't brewed in several years and my son is looking to get into it. I'm probably going to pass all my equipment along to him.

Bottles are great for portability, but other than that, I hate 'em. I did keep one bottle of every batch I brewed/bottled. Some of these date back well over 20 years.

I tried twice on my own, and twice helping a friend that does pretty good usually.

All four went horribly horribly wrong. :(

Sanitation is the key. Doesn't have to be sterile, but bleach and/or iodophor are your friends. Other than that, keep it simple.
