tried to save a handfull of my first brews...they became over carbonated so I thought I should probably drink them. Now I just re-brew

I actually just poured the last bottle of my first batch for my Dad on Father's Day.

I've got a few bottles from my first two batches, but I'm not sure which is which. That was when I was labeling the *boxes* and not the *bottles*.

Needless to say, I didn't make that mistake again…

I just had an old Porter that I brewed March 2010. Lets just say that it is definitly NOT a fine wine, and does not get better with age!

I don't think I've ever had a beer make it past 3 or 4 months. One day maybe, not yet though.

I'm saving 1 bottle of my first batch of apple wine I made 3/22/13 .
It was not sweet, but not dry either. A nice balance. Thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the 5 gal.

I have one bottle tucked in the back of the fridge from my first batch about 4 years ago now. Don't plan to ever drink it - but I'll keep it tucked back there out of the way.

I have a 12 oz bottle of my Heff sitting on my desk. I'm not going to drink it. The yeast looks gray and if you swirl the bottle it does not look good. It has settled a lot now and it looks fine until you look at the color of the cake.

I'm glad I didn't. It was awful.
