Default How angry would you be?

A buddy came over to help bottle my pumpkin seed porter I made a few weeks ago. He just wanted to get an idea how the process worked.

So we bottled along and for his prize, I have him a 6er of them (total, i got 50 bottle, less the 6 i gave him).

Told him to store them away for a few weeks and I'd let him know when they were ready.

Apparently "store away" to him means "set on counter." They weren't labeled at all...

They were ready to drink this past weekend. Lo and behold, I get a text from him just as I was going to tell him to throw one of those badboys into the fridge for a couple days: "my girlfriend took them out with the recycling because she didnt know there was beer in them."

Now, I know I gave those beers to him to do whatever he wanted with them, however, she recycled MY BABIES. I told him the only way he could have another one is if he gets it from me himself. Otherwise, no go as he already got 6 of them.

Bah.

</rant>

1. You weren't specific as to "How to store them"

2. His girlfriend needs to be taught about what a cap on a bottle is for.

3. Entirely up to you whether you give him more or not but another 6 out 47 is going to hurt, much.

Id be a little concerned about that one.... how do you throw away capped bottles?


edit: the more I think about this, the more ridiculous it sounds. I cant imagine someone could really be that naive. Has she ever picked up a six pack before? --theres a pretty significant difference between full and empty... dunno, maybe Im just hyper-observant.

She didn't think to ask "Why in the world are there unlabled capped beer bottles with something in them sitting on the counter and should I recycle them or are you keeping them for a reason?" I wonder what else she would throw away? You mean to say she uncapped them, dumped them out, all 6 and not once did she ask herself "Should I wait and ask him about this?"

Yeah, I would be a bit angry she did not wait and ask me about them first.

She doesn't know the difference in weight between a full bottle and an empty bottle? And totally agree with Gila, why would she throw it out when they had caps on them? Totally weird situation...

Hey,at least he didnt drink them as soon as he got home. Then called you to say "Those beers were flat"


You should give a sixer for having to deal with a girl who will throw his beer out.

I would call him every time I cracked one just to tell him how freaking good it is.

Then point and laugh.

id say, if his GF is the type that throws away full bottles of beer thinking they were empty, he has bigger problems then missing beer.
i wouldnt give him anymore of his own, but maybe let him share some of yours, under strict non-disposal supervision.
