Well I think I just f***** up my second batch of beer. I is a extract Cooper's Stout. Anyhow everything was going great up untill the time for bottling. I started the cyphen from the 6.5 g carboy to the bottling bucket, no big deal right? Wrong. My g** d*** spigot was cracked! How the h*** didn't i see that before i started? Well i'm getting my bottles ready while its goin and it just leaks faster and faster, it gets down to about 1 g left in the carboy and the damn cyphen stops! WTF! I mixed my Dex priming solution in the bucket before i started the cyphen so i'm thinking ok just hurry. So I started filling my bottles. Then I remembered I HAVE ANOTHER GALLON LEFT IN THE CARBOY!!! So i start freakin. I come up with the great idea to just go ahead and pour the rest in the bucket and hope there is enough suggar left for it to prime. So when I finnialy get done fing it all up, my wife comes home and sees the mess! =--( G girl appears out of nowhere and goes nuts. So now i'm left with a F'ed up batch up beer and a pissed off wife. Please God tell me that some of the beer is salvageable...

Oh wow, that sounds like a bad night! I had one of those moments when I decided it would be a good idea to try to put my spent grain down the disposal during a brew and it completely clogged all of the plumbing so my sink started overflowing during my boil. Not a fun day, and I know we've all had a day or two like that when brewing. You'll laugh about it in the future, I promise.

Only time will tell if the bottles got enough sugar to carbonate. Try one in a few weeks and see. If they didn't you can always get some carbonation tablets to drop in and recap.

My first brew, I ended up spilling half of my grains in the sink and my hops bag broke in the boil (found out later that that was ok, but at the time was a nightmare). I didnt have the right size pot so I did two pots. I didn't even drink a beer during the whole thing, so I was completely frustrated at the end.
