Here we go again...

If your dad used rotting apples that sat around nasty food for a while, then maybe you will die from it. Since that is just ridiculous, no need to worry.

How many times do we have a chance to taste history, good or bad? Since nothing pathogenic can grow in fermented beverages, there should be no concern about the harmful aspects. So what's left? If it's vinegar you'll know if it's bad before you taste it...if it's anything else, like oxidyzed, so what? You spit it out...

But it may be amazing. If anything it may be a once in a lifetime experience. Why would you even hesitate? Why would you ever consider passing this up?

Read this.. We tried 48 year old beer today.

I don't get it...why the hell don't people jump into this when they have an opportunity?
AMEN!!!! We should all be so lucky to have the opportunity. I won't likely ever be that lucky, so it irritates me also.

I didn't bring it up but am guilty of thinkin it! In my defense I'm very new and don't know much yet...
But I'm guessing no matter good brew or bad nothing is gonna hurt you... Right?
If you mess up everything, is the worst thing it could be is vinegar or oxidation? I just don't wanna give anyone Malaria, Gonaherpalitus or the Black Plague!
