Aside from what happened to your actual beer, your silver rule actually falls under the RDWHAHB rule.

You...you did WHAT? You didn't even TASTE it?



Because you needed more BOTTLES? Did you know that there are plenty of sources of bottles that contain non-homebrews in them?

I sentence you to 10 lashes with a 3/8" vinyl tube.

Never crack open another homebrew beer before waiting 3 weeks.

I hold my head in shame and promise to never do it again. My self inflicted punishment shall be to drink every bottle I open tonight until I pass out.

well, about every batch I've ever tasted of mine after only a week in the bottle was flat and tasted like hammered *******. Give them 3 or 4 weeks and the transformation is amazing.

Just out of curiosity, what does hammered ******* taste like? Gimme a comparison, because I'm at a loss.

Hammered *******? I thought everyone knew about that.
Kind of a mix between crap and BMC

BMC = bud, miller, coors. Used on here to reference most beers that are mass produced.

Oh for Christ's sake. I know that! I completely forgot.

Maybe I SHOULD cut down on drinking.
