I made one bad extract batch in the last fifteen years that I dumped. But my all grain batches have all been awesome!

I haven't dumped one yet, but my first batch was not good due to lack of understanding the importance of temp control. It was only a 2 gallon MR Beer batch and I punished myself for making bad beer by drinking it. Only did a few more MR Beer kits before diving into AG and each batch is better than the last now thanks to all the wisdom on this forum.

My first batch was extract with specialty grains. Came out great. Second was a partial mash. It got infected and was undrinkable. Since then I have gone all grain with no problems. Well, my son did a Guiness clone kit with my supervision and its got the plastic taste. I won't drink it. He might ;-) A couple of mine have been "interesting" experiments but they seem to get consumed. Only up to about 20 batches so plenty of opportunity left for failure. ;-)

Brewed a bock that caught a contaminant and tasted like bandaids. Gave it time to see if it would "clear up" and cracked one every so often. I've done that through an entire case and I just poured a bottle of 98% foam. Bandaid tasting foam.

At least I have a HB IPA to drown my sorrows while I watch the rest of these swirl down the drain

Batch #101 and counting...no dumps. Did have to age a BoPils for like 5 months to get all the spices to settle, no idea what I was thinking, added like 7 spices. After it mellowed, it was a slightly cinnamon pils and quite delicious.

I dumped #6 due to having 5 gallons of vinegar bottled. (#7 came out good, so I think it was bottle or bottling bucket sanitation that got me).
#8 is unknown (Highly inaccurate thermometer resulting in mashing at about 180 degrees) - about another week in the keg before I know for sure. Hopefully it will be a good low alchohol sweet beer).
