Open primary ferment bucket and wonder... Hmm how does it smell. Stick my head in the bucket and get assaulted by co2. Omg the headache.

Lucky you didn't pass out and drown. ;)

But what a way to go!! :rolleyes:

I did that once, and that was enough. No headache for me though, just a lot of nasty sinus burn. Kinda reminds me of the way a huge gob of fresh wasabi feels.

I think I kill just enough brain cells to forget what it's like.

Nope you're not the only one... every now and then I want a good deep whiff, and forgetting the wafting technique from chemistry class, I lean over and sniff... sometimes I get sinus buring, sometimes I just sit down hard... I do it just often enough to remind myself not to!

I ferment in a temperature controlled chest freezer, and I will open it up, and bend down to get something in there and, yeah. CO2 to the lungs hurts!

Oh man that's the worst, it's bad when you have to de gas your freezer

Yeah, I end up doing that a couple of times a year, with either beer or mead. I don't get a headache, just a nasty sinus tingling...
