Impressive, do only intentional kills count? Do you include only mammals or do I get credit for arachnids, fowl and reptiles?

Well, if we count micro organisms I am probably in the trillions by now!

Actually, I am speaking about unintended kills. 2 sheep, 1 pigeon and a mouse.

Brain cells don't count.

I thought I had lost my hydro during a move so went and bought another one. Returned to house, found original one (that I had had for over ten years) and then it rolled off the worktop and proceeded to smash on the floor. All within a couple of minutes. A roller coaster of emotions!
...may go and buy a spare at lunchtime (lucky me has a HB shop within 15min of my work)

I broke the glass candy thermometer I was using for brewing last week... just barely hit something with the top of it and it just shattered. Never broke a hydrometer, but then again I hardly ever use it

Pastor,

Since you won't fill us in on all the gory details, let me posit a scenario that satisfies two separate but equally disturbing questions:

You were brewing in a barn, where there were several farm animals, birds, mice, etc. It was your first attempt at Wheat Beer, and you were very excited. But several minutes into the boil, tragedy struck. A boilover was imminent, so you made a mad dash to turn off the gas...but in the process, you knock over the whole rig. This ignites a horrendous fire that burns down the barn, killing two sheep, a pigeon and a mouse.

To this day, you're unable to even drink wheat beer, much less brew it, because of the horrible imagery that comes flooding back...

OH MY GOD! It is like you were right there! At last my dark secret is out. I feel such a sense of relief of all that has been pinned up inside of me.

No, it was gas.

Actually, I bloated the sheep with spent grain, pegged the pigeon from across the brewery with a full bottle of beer and crushed the mouse with a cornie of dopple bock.

Each beer was named for the deceased:
Silence of the Lambic
Pelted Pigeon Pale Ale
Rodent Back Grand Cru

Between this and your post yesterday about which of us had the most life insurance and the hottest wives....

You're quite unusual for a man of the Lord, aren't you?
