as i ran my Odell's Easy Street clone from the kettle to the carboy, i went to check on the chicken on the grill during which time, the funnel clogged up and spilled a gallon of the sweetest wort onto the drive, then down into the street. after swearing and spraying the driveway off, i made a sweet tea from what i had:
-8 oz corn sugar
-4 oz honey
-6 oz of light malt extract
-8 oz chopped lemongrass
i boiled the tea for 5 min. with 3 qts of water, then chilled and added it to the fermenter.
with my bad luck, it will be the best beer ever made, never to be duplicated.
what is your best save a brew tragedy story?
