That's a dumper for sure! Sucks, but it happens. I bet it won't happen again! There will be a new thing to cause grief next time.

At any rate, I highly recommend StarSan as a sanitizer. So easy to use with a spray bottle and used this way will last for a LONG time. I keep a jug of it mixed with distilled water and top off the spray bottle as needed.

Maybe limit yourself to one beer during the brewing/bottling days. At least until after you're all done.

That's a great idea. I think I had two beers by that time. You can bet I will triple check the package of priming sugar on my next bottling day which will be on the 29th of this month. I have a Red Ale fermenting in the basement right now and it will be three weeks in the primary on the 29th, which should be good for bottling. I was going to let this ale sit in the primary for 4 weeks, but due to the circumstances of what happened to my English Brown Ale incident, I will bottle the Red Ale one week earlier. This Saturday I will brew an American Cream Ale, and two weeks later I plan on brewing another English Brown Ale to make up for this one I lost.

I'm just not seeing the upside to trying to save this batch. Dumping beer isn't the worst thing that can happen to a homebrewer.
No doubt. I agree. Just saying what I would do. I hate losing a batch. Makes me crazy. The best advise is to dump it.
