My first all-grain beer was a dumper - never made it to the fermentor - due to a Papazian
zappap lautertun that was hopelessly clogged (threw it way that night). This made me laugh. I

Amazingly I've been called three times. Even ended up being a 7 pt match the second time
around, but by the time the testing was complete the patient had died. Felt sad. . . I know
