You didn't boil off an extra gallon, you made it extra special.

That's not an infection, it's a farmhouse.

There have to be more, right?

You didn't add in the wrong ingredients, it's a limited-time-only sapecial edition.

We don't say STFU NOOB, we say RDWHAHB.

You don't have a ruined batch, you have a practice run.

Well, I boiled off extra for the second batch in a row because I suck at batch sparge calculations (going to switch to fly because I hear it's better efficiency, but mostly because it's easier). The farmhouse came about when I said 'I forgot to clean my mash tun for a month after my last brew. I used a lot of star san, but we'll see... hell, I'll just call it a farmhouse.'

You didn't forget to add the sugar during the boil, you're doing an incremental feeding to let the yeast process complex sugars first.

You didn't break your racking cane, you made a DIY dip tube for your bottling bucket. (Thanks, Revvy!)

You didn't break your glass carboy, you added speed holes. That makes it go faster.

You didn't put your bottle conditioning beer into the fridge too soon because you were an impatient newbie, you were developing your abilty to recognize green beer.

You didn't screw up and add too much hops, you made an IPA.

You didn't have a boil over on the stove, you convinced SWMBO to let you buy a turkey fryer and brew outside!
