Ok....I bottled my 1st homebrew last night. Everything went well with no apparent issues. My question is......will by beer be hexxed by the beer gods because I was drinking Bud Light Lime while I was bottling?

HA! No chance, but only because it was your 1st homebrew. Make sure to keep at least a six-pack of your first batch to enjoy during the creating and packaging of your second batch.

I'd be careful going outside when it's cloudy for awhile. Odin might just change his mind...

Yes....you're doomed to be visited by "Evil Beer Gnomes" and they are mean bastards.

And ugly too....

I mean what's worse than finding THIS in your beer closet or kegerator.

You'll need to cultivate some beer fairies to protect your stuff. You do that by leaving a bottle capful of wort for them, as tribute. (They like sweet stuff.) You do that and they will keep the beergnomes at bay.

I'm lucky, mine are hot....

Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

She has wings? I was pretty much focused on the fact she isn't wearing panties...

The only thing I've done with bud light lime as far as consuming it goes is adding a few touches of it to homemade salsa. Of everything in the coolers in the beer aisle, Bud Light Lime would be the last thing I grab for actual drinking. BLEH
Primary 1: Whiskey Stout
Primary 2: Apfelwein
Bottled: Oat Red Ale, Peach Wheat, Strawberry Dirty Blonde Ale, Brown Sugar IPA

In line: Cucumber Summer Blonde, Kona Pipeline Porter Clone, Bacon Porter

The best yet: St. Nick's Dirty Stout (Vanilla Gingerbread Stout) - guessed at the recipe when boiling, didn't write anything down... DAMN.
