Default Crazy Stuff Found In Ingredients While Brewing

While making a strong Belgian Ale, I was melting down some blocks of raw sugar, and found a large nail in one of the blocks! It was a block made by Goya.

I have also had another rather large shipment of grain, upon close inspection was loaded with weavels. The supplier did replace that shipment.

Not that kind of a nail, a steel nail about the size of a roofing nail.

Imagine biting down on that sucker
