Went to get my bottling fermenter today, and there's a drowned cockroach in it. :angry:

It looked about 4 times wider than the grommet hole. :huh:

I have foil jammed in all grommet holes now. B)

It wasn't drowned, it was drunk and only sleeping it off. nothing kills them except a large boot.
Turned my back on an open fermenter to grab the lid once and in less then 5sec a large spider had jumped in :blink: it did not kill him/her also. :angry:

When I was washing bottles a couple of weeks ago a large huntsman fell out of one bottle. It was dead. Obviously had drunk itself to death.
Must have been some beer left in the bottle.
Looks like the insect/creepy crawly world has found out how good homebrew is.

Lock up those fermenters!!!

I had much the same problem johnno except with two mice. I'd left a few dregs in the bottom of the stubbie in the patio. One mouse climbed in, but couldn't get out...and another joined it.

Oh the stench :angry:

I'm glad we dont have many cockroaches down here :ph34r:

No big deal really.

I know someone here in Adelaide who tried "dry roaching" a beer once. :p

Nothing wrong with a bit of protein in your beer TDA. I seem to recall that Bradmcm particularly enjoyed the moment.
