Jesus Christ! My first brew of 2012 is a drainpour! Hmmm... I hope this isn't a bad omen.

What are you brewing rituals and superstitions? How should I go about removing the bad ju-ju from my brewery?

My advice: eschew superstition. Use science. ;-)

I try to always brew in my Dunder Mifflin t shirt. For bad ju ju, how about burning hops as incense and banging a copy of the Joy of Homebrewing against your chest while you chant the names of your favorite craft brews?

Tie this man to a giant mash paddle and set fire to the 20kg bales of hops piled at his feet!

Looks like you might have been slightly under temp for the 1st 24 hours. With 1338 being a notorious slow starter, I wonder if the low end temp put the kibosh on a good start and then it never recovered? Then mixing in the 1056 gave it an off-flavor? Stranger things have happened.
