Tonight while bottling the last of my four Christmas beers I knocked three mens health magazines into my bottling bucket full of my precious honey orange IPA.... I pulled them out immediately... You guys think I ruined it?

The principals of detection make me ask this, why where you standing on your counter with 3 mens health magazines that "fell" into the bucket, it makes me wonder if you were"pitching some yeast"

lol, hope you know I'm just messing, this is what I say (I'm still a newbie), screw it, it's already... "ruined" ...why not try to see what comes of the Tommy Hilfiger brew.

We gotta laugh at the simple things, if there was a hidden camera feed directly to HBT when I did my first brew a few weeks ago, you all would have laughed your asses off.
We all **** up here and there, give it a shot see if it comes out.

P.s. Don't keep "yeast" for next starter

It might give it a slightly body oily and kind of fleshy cover flavor but otherwise I think it'll be ok

Isn't it funny how these things happen? But, I feel your pain!

In any case I think your brew will be fine. I'm assuming it was not wort but fermented beer due to it being in the bottling bucket so that greatly reduces the number of beasties that could infect it. As for the magazines themselves, unless there were any cologne or other inserts, and as long as the ink didn't immediately start to wash off, I think your beer will be fine. Just call it Men's Health IPA.
