    I brewed up my first batch yesterday. It began fermenting (bubbling the airlock every 3 or 4 seconds) today. It's shut in a closet in a spare bedroom that stays shut. My question is - would it be OK to paint elsewhere inside the house while it is fermenting? I'd like to take advantage of the days off and get some interior walls painted, but not at the expense of my beer absorbing any paint smell/taste. It is well-sealed inside the fermenting bucket, but I wanted to ask to be sure. Someone may have done this before. Thanks!
