Posted in thread: How many batches have you actually poured? on 09-19-2014 at 03:33 AM
I'm something like 14 batches in and I've never dumped one, but my second batch (a Northern
English brown) tasted weird and I've pretty much ignored it... 40-something bottles still
sitting in my clos...

Our first time brewing, we feared the foam and rinsed out the carboy with tap water in a moment
of panic before transferring the wort. Everything turned out fine but we sure felt like idiots
