My dogs have a bad habit of liking iodophor solution too much. I have a bad habit of putting the solution in a square container that looks like their water bowl, straight onto the floor. It doesn't help that I like to give them "overage" beer in the same container.

So uh... a few years ago I was trying a recipe from a book for a light ale. The recipe description said it was a great lawn-mowing beer so I figured I'd call it "LawnMower" creatively enough. So, in order to 'make the recipe my own' as it were I thought, "Hey, I have some fresh lawn clippings in the yard. What if I grabbed a handfull and threw that in the boil toward the end?" I figured that would work great as a fining agent.

As it turns out... this was a tremendously bad idea. I don't know what the hell was in those lawn clippings but the beer that ensued was so damn awful I had to dump the whole batch. I didn't want to. I was early enough into brewing that the idea of throwing out one of my creations no matter who badly botched was anathema.

But ultimately, LawnMower HAD to die. It just HAD to.

One of my buddies started to barf, another laughed uncontrollably for a few minutes. Most of us just stared at each other in a shocked daze for a few seconds. Lot's of "WTF"s all around.

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.
Lessons to live by.

NO! lol, but it was hard to ignore the poodle's indignant cries.

Yes, reboiling it would've done the job just fine. I mean, you can brew beer with water from a duck pond and it'll come out just fine. I believe in this case, the issue was that we saw what the secret ingredient was and how it got in there. It was just wrong...

The secret ingredient? you mean the homeless guy or his trenchcoat?
