...that the first taste you got from the tap almost made you cry. So you gave some to a friend and nearly saw a tear well up in his eye. Then you call up the friend that you gave a keg to in order to try and get it back from him because it is so freaking good and he tells you that even though it is Monday and you gave him the keg on last Tuesday, it is almost gone.

Last but not least, you come to the conclusion that since you dry hopped it, there is only about another month worth of time to drink it. That is when you slap your forehead and get back to brewing another batch in order to duplicate it.

I just tasted my IPA and about fell out of my shoes. It is by far the best beer I have brewed and damned close the the greatest IPA I have ever had. Shocked me half to death.

Sounds like you've got a winning house recipe. Bravo! Now it's just a matter of keeping that pipeline flowing.

And then the terror sets in that maybe you did something while brewing it, on accident, that you'll never be able to duplicate again...

Ah yes! The i'll never be able to make this beer again. That is especially true when you throw in an extra pound of misc. specialty grains that you had laying around for the tripel you were going to brew 6 months ago but never got around too. Top that off with a little my hydromiter broke before taking my SG and you have an AMAZING belgian quad that will never be made again. I'm bracing for the "Only put known ingrediants in a beer" comments.

Has anyone ever put some stuff in a beer that they weren't really sure what it was and it came out awesome??

I did something like that, but not my arm.

Called it "Teabag Trippel"

It was quite good!

I have made a few batches of 'Armenbrau' and all were quite good.

Also, I can attest that cat/dog/wife hair doesn't effect the finished flavor of your beer, just the texture.
