Motivation for Sanitation

Brewing beer is a fun and rewarding hobby.  It is also relatively easy to do.  By using good ingredients, following a recipe, and consulting a good homebrew book, almost anyone can brew a good and drinkable beer.  However it is possible to brew a stinking mess and apparently if a homebrew goes completely wrong your kitchen brewery can be mistaken for a meth lab.

Workers at an apartment complex in Colorado Springs, CO encountered what was described as “a noxious smell” after entering a unit.  After starting to feel ill, the workers called authorities fearing they had stumbled upon a meth lab.  Eventually, the authorities were able to determine that the smell was coming from a homebrew kit gone horribly wrong.  As if ruining your beer wasn’t punishment enough for a poor sanitization job, now you can be mistaken for a drug dealer!
