Re: Chaotic, messy, and wet

OH, of course you are! Brewing is no fun without the mishaps. He had an old water jug rigged up for bottling that worked rather well...

...until it sprung a leak early in it's final batch and then the race was on to see if we could bottle more than ran out on the floor.

(god I miss it!!)

Re: Chaotic, messy, and wet

I tend to prefer when the mishaps don't result in the loss of the whole batch. Otherwise, yeah... I love having stories to tell. Even this I'll look back on and smile about eventually.

Last night, though? Boy was I upset.

(Get to it. Incidentally, have you found homebrewing yet?)

Re: Chaotic, messy, and wet

Yeah...in all the humor, I'd sort of forgotten the whole batch got scrapped. I do feel for you...

No, I haven't found homebrewing yet - thanks! I hadn't done a whole lot of looking just yet, but I saw one of your posts in mollys_cauldron, on soda brewing I think, and got intrigued. (My sister and I are going to have a Harry Potter theme weekend some time and will make all the foods, etc. I was thinking of butterbeer...but we've since out that Buttershots makes a pretty fine facsimile all on it own)

Re: Chaotic, messy, and wet

The community has a fair share of "scientific" brewers who'll occasionally point out that if you do it "that way" you won't get reproduceable results, but overall they're a good lot.

I found my way to mollys_cauldron by way of agoodshinkickin, and I think that was the first post I had seen that actually was HP themed. I may eventually post there properly. Maybe after an experiment or two.

Incidentally, I do make a mean ginger beer.
