The last batch that I wanted to dump was a Porter that didn't come well at all, to me anyway. I have a friend that is a heavy "Smokeless Tobacco" user and really doesn't have any taste buds to speak of and he thought it was great or maybe is was the free beer. Haven't dumped a batch in 4 years.

Knock on wood!!!!

Of the 100-ish brews I've done since starting this fair hobby, I've dumped two. One was intentional, the other only somewhat so.

I dumped my tripel after letting it ride for a year. A month ago it still tasted of DMS and solvent, so down the drain it went.

I had also entertained the idea of dumping a purported Orval clone that tasted WAY too much like a barnyard. But then a bottle exploded and, mercifully, set off a chain reaction of all the other bottles in the case, so my decision was made for me.

Switched to an electric e-keggle two months ago. Awesome I must say. However, got lazy and didnt clean the elements. My Samual Smith Winter Welcome tasted literally like a liquid ashtray. Dumped the whole thing after 3 weeks of fermenting. The taste was not going anywhere. Awful, but lessoned learned.

probably just jinxed myself though
Wait...you dumped 465 gallons of beer?

Oh yeah, in the words of my fiancee, "that was the worst beer I've had that you've made."

Sitting on a wee heavy that resembles everclear more than beer. I have never dumped a batch before, but I feel like this will be my first.....

I just hate having a keg taken up when I could have something that tastes good on tap.....
