Serious answer:

What's done is done. Brew another batch and forget about this one...chances are it'll be fine...

It's shot... You needed to leave the carcass in to give the yeast enough protein to fight off the ensuing bacterial onslaught.

SCORE!!!! Screwdriver IPA? One of my favorites, but I was holding back the recipe. Didn't I read about someone with a bat in a fermentor a while back?

I just had a thermometer break in my wort before the boil. I pulled out what ever I could and went on with the boil. All I did was filter it into the carboy. ( don't worry its not a mercury thermometer) Im hoping there isn't anything toxic in it.

I peed in my wort accidentally. Is it ok? And if so, what should I name it and what style would you say it is?
