I pee in my mash to help set the pH. Isn't that what your supposed to do for an I "PEE" A? I always take extra vitamins on brew day so the urine is full of excess vitamins for proper yeast nutrition.

Can we please stay serious here. The is a clear solution to this issue.

If a fly lands in your beer you must put in a spider to catch the fly and then a bird to catch the spider and then a cat to catch the bird and then a dog to catch the cat and then a cow to catch the dog and then a horse of course.

Fly By Night Stout?
No Flies on This?

Seriously, though, how can you even say "fly in my wort" and keep a straight face?

Wait, wait, I got it. Let it finish, bottle it, and serve it to your pesky in-laws.

Two packets? Wow, a fly got in your wort...

That requires *AT LEAST* 6 packets.

A light American lager, obviously

Unfortunately, it will probably score poorly in competition - the presence of wort pretty much ensures that it won't be to style.

You have to remember the FDA allows for a certain percentage of stuff in our food. I doubt a single fly is going to offset your brew that much.

But I gotta admit I just bottled a superior strong ale tonight that I had to go back 4 times elbow deep in the fermentor looking for a sponge I couldn't find. The sponge was in another bucket. Thought for sure I'd contaminated the batch as trying four time to fish out something that wasn't there in the first place. While I hoped I cleaned my arm up enough, I wasn't sure until tonight as I left it alone to do it's thing.

Opene it up after 5 weeks and it looked great and tasted even better.
You fished it out, don't worry, you'll be fine.

My "Skyrim Ale" turned into "Skyrim Screwdriver Ale" after flameout, but it was a tasty brew.

That'd actually help your yeast as your pee contains diamonium phoshate which is a yeast nutrient.

probably did more harm taking it out, but you will be good to go... Thats why we have the 5 sec rule... your hands are much more dirtier than the floor. :-)

The fly is more than ruined. It's DEAD! It won't revive, no matter how many packets of yeast you add.

Let him rest in peace and drink the beer in his honor.
