I know all the brewing bibles say to do this, but it's been proven un necessary. John Palmer has even conceded and will change his stance on it new edition publications. Now it's only 18.2 years.

No OG or ferm temp. The kit didn't come with a hydrometer or thermometer so I just guessed at everything. The air temp where the beer fermented is about 110 degrees. Is that a problem?

I don't have Pepsi. Would Red bull work?

Yes, it would also eliminate the oddly shaped foot prints.

Only flip flops belong in the secondary. Shoes are for bottling.

I always read not to dump a batch. But, what if your batch tastes like a dump? Should I just wear crocs for that?

Crocs work. I think alligators would add some sweetness. Really, any reptile. Search this thread on how to use turtles.

Crocs and turtles are certainly comimentary, but I'd be concerned about an overdominant presense myself. if candied swamp is what you're going for, that would probably get you there.

Or, another option...nix the turtle, and dry hop the crocs. They are naturally antimicrobial whereas turtles are not.
