Dog saliva is known for its awesome antibacterial properties

I sliced and tossed a dirty beet into a beer while it was cooling. Did not end up well.

Was this a Red Tick Beer clone?

well to be honest, i polished the keg off in 2 weekends. it was Yoopers DFH60 extract brew. maybe that was the "special" ingredient that needs to be added to all my brews.

Who wants to come over and have a few beers??? LOL

I am pretty sure that the fermentation will take care of any nasties that might have been on your arm. You are probably all good. I haven't had anything too crazy happen to me so far. I have (while cooling) noticed some bee carcases in my wort before but I didn't really think much of it, lol.

We had a guy at in our club do something similar. His keggle dip tube clogged and he had to reach in to unclog it. The beer was called Arm Brau after that... he is particularly hairy too, hopefully the yeast he pitched was strong.

An immediate unsolicited and unanimous vote ensued for dumping the whole batch. Not even a thought about just boiling it for whoever long to sterilize the wort.

It was one of our most expensive recipes to begin with and it hurt all the way back to the LHMS to pick up enough ingredients for another go.

The second batch was done under a beach umbrella.
Damn, maybe I am just a dirty dirty human being...but I wouldn't ahve thought twice about finishing that beer. Scoop out anything floating, fire it up to boil another 10 minutes...and just keep on with the brewing. Anything gnarly will either get eaten by yeast or fall out and become part of the trub/yeast-cake.

Then again, I get emotional when it comes to beer.

Well nothing has ever defecated into my wort, but I've definitely lost one or more carboy bungs in a fermenter (I keep spares so I've just left them). The worst thing that's happened in recent memory is probably discovering that one of the compression fittings on my old and trusty whirlpool chiller (since retired) had apparently been banged loose by some clumsy fool. (me)

I was brewing down on 5th avenue...

this homeless guy finishes raping a poodle and walks by. A cop yells for him to stop and the homeless guy and his dirty junk and trench coat jump into my brew pot....and dissolve!!!

The boil stopped and the cop then threw up in my wort.


Most unsanitary thing EVER??????


I expected something better than this.
